HÀ NỘI — Anh Sơn 'Muller' scored the only goal to help Mobi FC win the first super cup trophy of the seven-a-side football tournament on May 28 in Hà Nội.
It was a match of the Vietnam Super Cup champion Mobi FC and Vietnam Premier League (VPL) winner Đạt Tín FC at the Hoàng Mai Culture and Sports Centre.
It was sweet revenge for Mobi after it lost 2-1 to Đạt Tín in the semi-finals of the VPL as Đạt Tín took the championship title last September.
Just five minutes into the game, Mobi had its first threatening chance when Thế Mạnh had a strong straight shot but Đạt Tín goalkeeper Đăng Thao denied it.
Ten minutes later, Quang Việt and Bá Mạnh did a great give-and-go performance to bring the ball near Đạt Tín's box. Mạnh sent a smart pass into the box but it was a too strong so Việt failed to catch up with it.
Đạt Tín also had their answers that put Mobi players on alert.
Mai Tấn Vũ had a solo run, taking the ball past several Mobi's players and sending it toward goalie Nguyễn Văn Hưng, who successfully blocked it.
Hưng also refused another finish by Quang Vinh near the end of the first half while his counterpart Thao denied Nguyễn Văn Dương's left foot tap.
Both sides continued to play tit-for-tat in the second half with many shots at each other's goal. The two goalkeepers had to work hard but they successfully protected their net.
The turning point came in the second additional minute.
Defender Phạm Trương Hoàng Nam of Đạt Tín had a handball in the box after a corner kick from Mobi FC.
Mobi was given a penalty and Sơn “Muller” did not make any mistake to score the opening goal.
Đạt Tín tried harder in the remaining time but it was not enough to find an equaliser.
The super cup match was the kick-off of the seven-a-side football season. The VPL-Season 4 will begin this weekend with matches of three regional qualifiers. VNS
