The second round of matches at the 2020 AFF Suzuki Cup certainly lived up to expectations with two teams making their tournament bow and with a string of standout performers across the four matches.

In the mix for the Player of the Round we have a towering Singaporean defender, a dynamic attacking threat from Malaysia, a Cambodian talent and a pair of Indonesian stars who shone in the final match on the slate.  

Make sure to vote now and have your say as to who will be the Matchday Two Player of the Round.

Safuwan Baharudin (Singapore)


Once again the 30-year-old defender was an impressive presence at both ends of the pitch, a rock in his defensive duties in helping shield a furious series of late attacking forays from the Philippines whilst also providing the assist for the Lions opening goal in the 2-1 win.

Safawi Rasid (Malaysia)

Backing up an impressive display from the opening match the star forward shone once again in Malaysia’s 4-0 win over Laos, grabbing the first hattrick of the tournament; a well-taken first half brace added to with a powerful third as Safawi goes top of the scoring charts at the 2020 AFF Suzuki Cup.


Evan Dimas (Indonesia)

The Indonesian captain put in a typically busy performance in central midfield, popping up all over the pitch with a strong range of passing to go with both a goal and an assist in Indonesia’s win over Cambodia.


Rachmat Irianto (Indonesia)

The towering central defender managed most of his work at the back end of the pitch in a composed manner but it was in front of goal where he proved an unlikely threat, grabbing the first and the third goals in Indonesia’s 4-2 win to become the most unlikely of second placed options in the race for the Golden Boot.


Lim Pisoth (Cambodia)

For the second straight match Cambodia had the better of possession despite a loss and the lively forward Pisoth provided plenty of classy moments in the final third, sending off a string of late shots as his team pushed the more fancied Indonesians all the way.
