Phan Tan Dat doubled the result near the end of the second half, making him one of two best scorers of the tournament, with 10 goals.
His teammate Pham Xuan Hung, who played a key role in keeping their net safe yesterday, has been voted Best Goalkeeper.
Do Van Quan of Phu Do is the Best Player of the first ever festival.
Hoa Lu of HCM City and Huynh Thuc Khang of Da Nang shared the third place.

A team of best players will enjoy a tour to Japan in October.
