The Thai team opened the score in the 29th minute. A few minutes later they gained an advantage over Viet Nam after Le Quoc Phuong was sent off with a red card.
However, the Vietnamese team was not discouraged and launched attacks that resulted in two goals in the second half thanks to Nguyen Hai Huy.
