BRUNEI Darussalam under-18 national team slipped to a narrow 1-0 defeat to Laos in the Asean Football Federation (AFF) Under-18 Youth Championship at the Di An Football Field in Di An, Vietnam on Thursday.
Laos’ goal in the 21st minute separated both sides as they condemned the Brunei side to their second successive loss.
On the other hand, Laos bounced back from their opening-day defeat to Myanmar after Thanouthong Kietnalonglop hit the target in the first half.
Elsewhere at the Go Dau Stadium, Indonesia beat Timor Leste 4-0 to preserve their unbeaten record in the competition.
The young Wasps, who began the campaign with a 7-2 defeat to Timor-Leste, will play Indonesia next tomorrow.
