Kuala Lumpur: Indonesia made it two wins out of two in Group A of the AFF Mitsubishi Electric Cup 2022 after they stormed to a 7-0 win over Brunei Darussalam at the Kuala Lumpur Football Stadium on Monday.

Syahrian Abimanyu and Dendy Sulistyawan scored for the Garuda in a first half during which Brunei DS went down to 10 men after Alinur Rashimy Jufri received his marching orders.

Egy Maulana, Ilija Spasojevic, Ramadhan Sananta, Marc Klok and Yakob Sayuri added to the score after the break to inflict a third defeat from as many matches on Brunei DS.

Only goalkeeper Nadeo Argawinata, captain Asnawi Mangkualam and attacker Egy retained their places from the Indonesian side that edged Cambodia 2-1 in their Group A opener on Friday.

Surprisingly, it was Argawinata who was the first goalkeeper to get tested in the evening. Brunei DS broke forward in the ninth minute on a counter and centre-back Rizky Ridho had to bring down Nazirrudin Ismail just outside the box.

Nineteen-year-old Hakeme Yazid lined up the resulting free-kick and his low drive that crept under the defensive wall needed saving from the Indonesian goalkeeper.

Indonesia took the lead in the 20th minute when Spasojevic took control of the ball in the box and laid it for the arriving Abimanyu to take a touch and finish past Brunei DS shot-stopper Haimie Abdullah Nyaring.

Brunei DS, however, were not afraid to commit bodies forward and another set-piece in the 23rd minute, this time taken by Hendra Azam Idris, produced a diving save from Bali United goalkeeper Argawinata.

In the 34th minute, another quality free-kick, this time at the other end, saw the woodwork get rattled. Saddil Ramdani did well to lift his shot over the wall, but was unfortunate to see it go out for a goal kick after hitting the inside of the post.

Mario Rivera side’s task of keeping Indonesia at bay was then made all the more difficult in the 38th minute when their full-back Alinur fouled Saddil and earned a second yellow card of the game.

Shin Tae-yong's side made the numerical advantage count as they doubled their advantage four minutes before the interval. Asnawi’s cross towards the far post was met by Saddil whose effort fell to Dendy who poked it in for his second international goal.

The second half began with an incredible howler from Hansamu Yama Pranata who just had to tap in a cross from Asnawi for Indonesia’s third in the 52nd minute, but managed to balloon it over from point-blank range.

Haimie produced a brilliant save to deny Egy four minutes later, but the young attacker had his goal of the night when he dived low to meet Edo Febriansah’s cross and guided his header into the back of the net in the 59th minute.

The Brunei DS goalkeeper was outstanding and did well to stop Saddil from scoring the very next minute, but Spasojevic’s cheeky backheel finish when the ball came back in left Haimie helpless between the sticks.

Woodwork once again came to Brunei DS’ rescue in the 67th minute as substitute Witan Sulaeman’s effort was parried onto the post by Haimie, but fellow substitute Sananta then scored his first international goal to make it 5-0 for Indonesia in the 69th minute.

There was still time for substitutes Klok and Sayuri to add their names to the scoresheet in the 86th and 92nd minutes to help Indonesia record the biggest win of the AFF Mitsubishi Electric Cup 2022 so far.
