HÀ NỘI – Sanatech Khánh Hòa came from behind to beat Cao Bằng 4-2 in the second leg of the National Futsal Championship yesterday.
“The turning point of the game was the penalty in the 32nd minute. We thought that if we scored a goal in this situation, we would win. We were lucky that my player shot successfully,” said coach Trần Duy Hiếu of Khánh Hòa.
Coach Hector Souto of Cao Bằng said that a dearth of experience caused Cao Bằng have to blow their lead after dominating the match and having many chances to score. However, Souto said his players played well.

Đà Nẵng played attack from the first minutes of the match and Văn An soon opened the score for Đà Nẵng.
After the break, Văn Nghĩa levelled the score for Sài Gòn from a quick attrack in the right wing.
Sài Gòn continued taking full advantage of errors of Đà Nẵng’s defenders to score two goals more.
“We set out to play attack, but when the game started, captain Hoàng Nam met injury so we changed our tactics. Fortunately, our players adapted quickly and got the best out of our chances,” said coach’s assistant Phan Trần Tuấn Anh of Sài Gòn. – VNS
