HA NOI (VNS) — Half-back Nguyen Thi Tuyet Dung was complimented by foreign media and domestic fans for scoring two goals directly from two corners in an AFF Women's Football Championship Group B match.
The match was played against Malaysia in HCM City on Monday.
It was a remarkable feat achieved by Dung in the Viet Nam team's 7-0 win over their Malaysian counterparts, 101greatgoals.com said.
"Dung managed the spectacular coup of scoring directly from a corner – and then repeated the trick later in the same game! More, she scored with both feet, first with her left, and then with her right," the website said.
It said, "And for anyone who thinks these corner golazos may have been flukes, Dung was the winner of the Vietnamese 2014 Golden Ball."
Meanwhile, domestic fans said male footballers could hardly score goals the way Dung did. — VNS
