Ganiyu Oseni scored four goals while Do Duy Manh, captain Nguyen Van Quet, Do Hung Dung, Nguyen Van Dung and Van Dal Ngan also found their name on the scoresheet. Nagaworld’s Leng Makara found the other goal of the game, but unfortunately, that too was at his own end.
Hanoi had given a tough fight to Chinese Super League side Shandong Luneng in the AFC Champions League 2019 play-off match last week, but dropped down to the AFC Cup following a good second half showing from their Chinese opponents.
And on Tuesday, the Vietnamese champions proved they are a class apart from the Cambodian domestic league winners with a dominant 10-0 win — the previous heaviest defeat in the competition being a 9-0 defeat suffered by India’s Dempo SC at the hands of Uzbekistan side Nasaf in 2011.

The floodgates opened as early as the sixth minute when Do Duy Manh scored from long range after Nguyen Quang Hai’s corner kick was headed out by the Nagaworld defence.
Nigerian forward Ganiyu Oseni made it 2-0 in the 13th minute after tapping in from a Nguyen Van Dung before Makara scored an own goal five minutes later to make it 3-0!

It was more of the same in the second half as Hung Dung made it 5-0 five minutes after restart before Oseni found his second of the night in the 68th minute to make it half a dozen goals in the bag for the home side. Van Dung made it 7-0 for Hanoi a short while later in the 72nd minute!
Oseni brought up his hattrick in the 75th minute when Van Quyet played a hopeful ball forward and the Nigerian forward got on the end of it before battling the defenders and scoring past the keeper!
