This was an epic rematch as Filipinas avenged their only loss in the 11-nation competition against the Thais on July 12.

The World Cup-bound Filipinas on Friday took down defending champs Vietnam, 4-0, in the semifinals of the tournament.

With the win over Vietnam, the hosts attained another historic milestone in becoming the first Philippine football squad to reach the final of a major international competition, a significant feat that was not lost on Filipinas coach Alen Stajcic.

“To make the first final in history (by a Philippine football team) is a massive occasion. It is a special moment,” Stajcic noted.
