Thais into SEA Games footy final

Nay Pyi Taw - Thailand beat Singapore 1-0 in the men's football semi-final at the SEA Games on Thursday night.

Praweenwat Boonyong scored the winning goal with a penalty kick in the 23rd minute. The Thais will meet Indonesia in tomorrow's final.

Indonesia upset defending champions Malaysia 4-3 on penalties after a 1-1 draw in yesterday's other semi-final.

Thailand will be heavy favourites against Indonesia who lost 4-1 to the Thais earlier in the Myanmar Games.

Thailand are bidding to regain the title they won eight times in a row until 2007. They were eliminated in the first round in the previous two tournaments in 2009 and 2011.

This is a great victory for Thailand. All Thais should take 5 minute pause to celebrate.
