    Indonesia is in fifth place with one point after drawing with Malaysia, 1-1, on July 6. It was routed by Australia, 4-0, last Friday.

    The Pinay booters are fresh from their 4-0 win over Malaysia to take the top spot in Group A with nine points. After the Indonesia match, the Philippines braces for Thailand, runners-up from the 2019 edition of the competition and the silver medalist in the Southeast Asian Games in Vietnam.
