After being the better team all match, Vietnam finally put an end product to their purpose with a neat finish from Nguyen Công Phuong in the AFC Asian Cup 2019.
A moment of individual brilliance from Baha Abdel-Rahman may have given Jordan the lead against Vietnam in the first half, but Vietnam’s industry throughout the match was duly rewarded when Nguyen Công Phuong scored off a sumptuous Nguyen Trong Hoàng cross from the right wing.
The cross was magnificent, swerving past the defender but onto the path of Cong Phuong who met it sweetly first time, to send it past the helpless Jordan keeper and into the net.
Well deserved. Vietnam 1 – Jordan 1.
