In the first half, Vietnam U22 took the initiative to choose a defensive style, yielding ball possession to the opponent. On the other side, Indonesia U22 did not dare to push the squad too high as they were fearful of Vietnamese counterattack situations.

In the 39th minute, after a very good free-kick from Do Hung Dung from the left-wing, Doan Van Hau rebounded by a crucial header to defeat goalkeeper Nadeo. A formula that is not new but still shows the maximum effectiveness of Park Hang Seo coach's students.

After the opener, the red-shirt players pushed up in an attempt to find the equalizer, but all were successfully resolved by goalkeeper Nguyen Van Toan. The first half ended with the advantage in favor of Vietnam U22.

Entering the second half, the match was still as coach Park Hang Seo expected. Indonesia U22 held the ball a lot but did not create any remarkable opportunities. In contrast, the players on the Vietnam U22 side were very sharp in the counter-attacks. In the 59th minute, after such a counterattack, from Tien Linh's pass, Do Hung Dung came up from the second line and launched an extremely dangerous shot to double the gap for Vietnam U22.

Conceding the second goal, the morale of the Indonesian team became lower. In contrast, although the gap was 2 goals, the players on the Vietnam U22 side were not subjective at any second. The formation and discipline in the defense of the white shirt team still look extremely standard.

Then, the third goal still came to Vietnam U22 very easily. After a very dangerous free-kick from Nguyen Hoang Duc in the 72nd minute, goalkeeper Nadeo punched the ball indefinitely and again Doan Van Hau chose the correct position and find the net of Indonesia U22 for the third time. Van Hau's brace ended all hopes of Indonesia U22.

In the last minutes of the match, Vietnam played extremely leisurely. On the other side of the battle line, the U22 Indonesia players did not make any effort to find the equalizer, as they also know that the victory belongs to Vietnam U22.

This is the first time in history Vietnam has become champion at the SEA Games men's football. Following the AFF Suzuki Cup 2018, Vietnam football continues to triumph ASEAN. From now on, Vietnamese fans can forget the sadness in the previous tournaments and be full of confidence that their team will go even further.

Competition: SEA Games 30th men's football final

Not beyond the predictions of experts and fans, Vietnam U22 and Indonesia U22 are the two best teams to play the final of the SEA Games 30th men's football.

Vietnam U22 has had a 4-0 victory over Cambodia U22 in the semi-final. In addition, coach Park Hang Seo promptly let a number of key players such as Tien Linh, Hung Dung and Hoang Duc to rest.

Replaying against Indonesia U22, Vietnam U22 is not allowed to be subjective as the lesson 10 years ago in Laos is still evident. In SEA Games 2009, Vietnam U23 just faced Malaysia U23 - the opponent lost to them 1-3 in the group stage. However, it was the Tigers who achieved the gold medal thanks to a 1-0 win in the final.

Thus, overcoming the psychological factors, Mr. Park and his players will most likely bring the first gold medal of men's football to their nation in SEA Games.

Meanwhile, Indonesia U22 had to play hard within 120 minutes in the remaining semi-final against U22 Myanmar. Their full physical strength, which was their strong point, had been worn down quite a bit.

Another good news for Vietnam U22 is that Indonesia U22 may lose 18-year-old star Egy Maulana Vikri. The player nicknamed "Messi Indonesia" who played in Poland had to be stretched off the pitch in the match against Myanmar, most likely not recovering to play in the final.

Overall, coach Indra Sjafri's team is still a heavy candidate for the gold medal. After losing to Vietnam U22 in the group stage, they will certainly get a lot of experience to improve in this final. Along with that, the team of Indonesia also owns various players who are playing very well such as Evan Dimas and Osvaldo Haay - the top goal scorer at the moment.

Certainly, like the match in the group stage, Indonesia U22 will cause a lot of difficulties for Vietnam U22. However, Park Hang Seo's team has proven that they are the strongest team in SEA Games 30 as they are still unbeaten after 6 matches.

Without the biggest star Nguyen Quang Hai, Nguyen Tien Linh - Ha Duc Chinh is now the best strike partnership of Vietnam football in SEA Games history (both scored a totally of 13 goals up to now). Thus, the precious gold medal will belong to Vietnam U22!
