For the first goal, it was Ha Duc Chinh who kicked off proceedings as he delivered a cross to the far post which was then headed back into the goal by Nguyen Tien Linh to give Vietnam a much-needed early lead against Cambodia.

In the 26th minute, a long ball which was sent forward from Vietnam’s penalty box resulted in their second goal. Both Ha Duc Chinh and Cambodia defender Yue Safy chased the ball, but the Vietnam forward came out on top easily, as he stole the ball and raced towards the Cambodia goalpost before firing past goalkeeper Keo Soksela.

At the time of writing, Vietnam were still leading 2-0, with ten minutes of play remaining in the first half.
