Scoring at the last minute, Vietnam U18 started smoothly against Malaysia U18

As the host country, Vietnam U18 entered the 2019 AFF U18 tournament with a high determination. However, the challenge for Hoang Anh Tuan's Team on the day of the military will certainly not be simple when Vietnam U18 must face tough opponents Malaysia U18.

In fact, what happened on the Thong Nhat Stadium showed that Malaysia U18 is not an easy opponent. Even when Vietnam U18 is the people fully in control of the field, Malaysia U18 also plays with extremely disciplined defenses, narrowing all gaps for Vietnamese strikers. In the first half, the students of coach Hoang Anh Tuan also created a lot of dangerous opportunities but the shots of Manh Quynh or Tien Sinh were not accurate enough and lucky enough to become a goal.

Coming to the second half, Vietnam U18 still maintained the imposition on the game but Malaysia U18 also showed their resilience. Physical advantage is also easy to see from the young players of Malaysia U18. In the second half of the match, they were still playing defensively but were more active and ready to launch offensive lines. That makes Vietnam U18 more difficult to find the opponent's net.

The 0-0 score was maintained until the last minute, but by the time all thought of a draw, the turning point of the match had occurred. In the 88th minute, from the corner of the right wing, Minh Trong brought the ball into the penalty area at low level. The ball swirled into the near post, lightly touching a Malaysian player before heading into the net in awe of the visitors.

The lucky goal in the last minute has helped Vietnam U18 get a good start in the 2019 AFF U18 tournament. However, Coach Hoang Anh Tuan and his players will have a lot of work to do before entering a real challenge in the second match when facing Australia U18.
