Ahmad Hazwan scored the only goal of the game for Ong Kim Swee's charges in the 57th minute to hand them the trophy, and cap off what has been an excellent outing for them in Vietnam.

Wins over Laos and Sydney FC saw Malaysia finish top of Group B and advance to the semi-finals, where they then proceeded to edge Thailand 1-0 courtesy of Syahrul Azwari's 53rd-minute winner.

Following his international commitment, Ong will return to the Great Eastern-YEO's S.League with his Harimau Muda side, where they will be looking for a strong finish to the campaign after seeing their title hopes ended by leaders Tampines Rovers 3-2 win over SAFFC on Friday.
