Cập nhật: 26/09/2023
VOV.VN - U23 Vietnam got off to a good start after clinching an overwhelming 4-1 victory over U23 Laos in their opening game of the Southeast Asian Football Federation (AFF) Championship 2023 on August 20.
U23 Vietnam took control of the game in the first minutes, but they could not break their Lao opponents’ defensive line.
They had no other choice but to rely on free kicks and the opponents’ poor ability to resist the ball.
In the 24th minute, Minh Khoa kicked from Van Khang’s pass, with the ball hitting Somsanid’s foot and going into the back of the net.
Shortly after the break, U23 Laos suddenly earned an equalizer from goalkeeper Quan Van Chuan’s mistake. The goalkeeper punched the ball badly and Thipphachan took full advantage of the opportunity to equalize the score.
The goal fuelled U23 Laos’ excitement but it did not last for long. Their limited physical strength made them lose in speed races or ball control in the air.
Vietnamese players made three more consecutive goals, setting the score 4-1 in their opening match.
U23 Vietnam play in Group C alongside U23 Laos and U23 Philippines. In their next match against the Philippines on August 22, Vietnam only need a draw to cruise into the knock-out stage.
