Indonesians walk off pitch in AFF Cup final

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - Malaysia thumped Indonesia 3-0 in the first leg of the AFF Cup final on Sunday after the visitors had walked off the pitch and accused local fans of pointing laser beams at them to distract them.

With the score tied 0-0 after 54 minutes, the Indonesian players left the pitch at the Bukit Jalil stadium complaining of the fans’ behavior.

They returned after eight minutes only to concede three goals in 12 minutes as the Malaysians gave themselves a comfortable cushion before traveling to Jakarta for the second leg on Wednesday.

Forward Mohd Safee struck in the 61st and 73rd minutes while midfielder Mohamad Ashari chipped in with a 68th-minute goal.
