Vietnam 1-0 Malaysia: Nguyen Quang Hai shines to help Vietnam win

Encountering an enthusiastic Malaysia at home, Park Hang Seo's team stepped into the match with a caring attitude. The visitors immediately rushed to play half the field in front of the red shirts.

With the initiative of the away team players, the feet of Vietnamese players are somewhat out of step. The ball was mainly put on the left-wing using Van Toan's speed and Van Hau's ability to climb.

The attack has not had many accents, the defensive row makes viewers have to find the heart. Malaysia twice stood near the opportunity to put the ball into Van Lam's net but luckily sided with Vietnam.

Unable to let the home team be under constant pressure, the frontline players made great efforts and created many disturbances with the Malaysian defense. Most significant are still opportunities with the participation of Quang Hai.

In the first match, Quang Hai made the correct move from Hung Dung's pass, but he ran too a beat, causing the referee to flutter the offside flag. But in the second, Quang Hai did not give the visitors the opportunity to correct mistakes. The gentle muzzle shot, but right in the narrowest slot of Quang Hai defeated the goalkeeper Farizal.

The first half closed with the advantage of a table in favor of Vietnam. Entering the second half, Park's midfield suffered losses with Tuan Anh's injury. However, when Park Hang Seo's machine entered the reels, Vietnam completely controlled the game.

Opportunities began to appear more, especially since Cong Phuong left the pitch on behalf of Anh Duc. The best opportunity came from the escape phase to the bottom of Hung Dung, his back pass created the advantage for two shots from Van Toan and Anh Duc. But for some reason fortunes were on the visitors' goal.

The rest of the time, although Malaysia has tried hard but could not create any dangerous opportunity towards Van Lam golf bridge. The match closed with a slim victory of 1-0 but 3 important points for Vietnam in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying journey.
