Viet Nam defeated Palestine 3-1 in the men's futsal at the Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games yesterday in Incheon, South Korea.
Tran Van Vu scored a double while Luu Quynh Toan made it 3-0 for Viet Nam in the first half.
However, Said Alsbakhi Rasha gave Viet Nam a fright after scoring in the 19th minute.
In the groups first match, Lebanon defeated Palestine 11-4.
Only one team from each group goes through to the next round and Viet Nam have to defeat Lebanon tomorrow to go forward.
In the women's futsal, Viet Nam lost 0-1 to Iran in their third-round match.
Forward Ardallani Niloofar scored the only goal of the match in the 15th minute.
This defeat means there is little chance of Viet Nam's women making it through to the semi-finals. They now have only three points after three matches and play Malaysia tomorrow.-VNS
