blocked it to keep the score level.

had a great chance to put his team ahead, but his kick from the left went wide.

came on for L. Beerta
With the match clock at 78 minutes, Phong modified their style of play a little bit.

's finish was met by the reaching hands of the keeper.

was given a chance to change things around.
