Viet Nam beat former V-League champions Ha Noi T&T 4-1 in a friendly match on Saturday in Ha Nam Province.
Mac Hong Quan grabbed a double, while striker Nguyen Van Quyet and midfielder Le Tan Tai added one each to seal victory for the national team.
Ha Noi T&T could only manage a single consolation strike by Tien Dung in early second half.
Coach Hoang Van Phuc of Viet Nam said his team was in good shape ahead of the Asian Cup qualifier against Hong Kong later this week.
However he said some areas still need to be perfected and he would have to complete these works in the next days to be ready for the March 22 clash in Hong Kong.-VNS
