U23 Vietnam wins Eximbank Cup 2010

QĐND – Sunday, October 03, 2010, 20:36 (GMT+7)

The U23 Vietnam men’s football team defeated Iran 2-0 at the final match of the Eximbank Cup 2010 at Thong Nhat Stadium in Ho Chi Minh City on October 2.

The team under head coach Phan Thanh Hung chose to play defense against its much stronger opponent and the players successfully stood against continuous attacks from Iran.

In the late minutes of the first half, Vietnam accelerated the pace of the match with Le Van Thang and Dinh Thanh Trung running fast down the wings. In the 45th minute, striker Anh Duc received a pass from a left corner kick and headed to score an open goal for Vietnam.

Vietnam faced difficulty in early minutes of the second half when Duc was sent off. The guests made full use of this advantage and created some dangerous situations at the hosts’ box but failed to equalise the score.

Substitute player Hoang Dinh Tung used one of his team’s counter attacks to kick the ball into the net.

The championship title is seen as a valuable present from the young players to the capital city on the occasion of its millennial birthday.
