Both Vietnam and Malaysia got the game underway in confidence. The early stage of the match saw a balance between the two teams.

Central defender Que Ngoc Hai easily scored a penalty to double the lead for Vietnam.

After the two teams were even in number, Vietnam regained control of the game and had several opportunities.

Attacking midfielder Nguyen Hoang Duc net the third goal for Vietnam in the 83rd minute.
