HÀ NỘI — Midfielder Hoàng Nhật Nam scored Sanna Khánh Hòa’s only goal to help his team defeat Quảng Ninh Coal by a score of 1-0, in the fifth round of the V.League 1 yesterday.
Making full use of their home advantage, the Sanna Khánh Hòa players, coached by Võ Đình Tân, dominated the game during the first 20 minutes.
The visitors, Quảng Ninh Coal, fought back with strong attacking play by Phạm Nguyên Sa, Nguyễn Hải Huy and Nghiêm Xuân Tú.
However, without their key striker Eydison Teofilo Soares, who was out with an injury, Quảng Ninh Coal could not score during the first half.
After the break, Tân changed his team’s tactics and substituted players to win the three points.
In the 55th minute, Quảng Ninh midfielder Dương Thanh Hào illegally tackled striker Lâm Ti Phông inside the 16.5 metre area, and the hosts won a penalty. However, striker Youssouf Toure failed to beat the Quảng Ninh goalkeeper, Huỳnh Tuấn Linh.
In the 79th minute, after receiving a spectacular pass from Toure, Nam scored the opener for Khánh Hòa.
With the win, Khánh Hòa is now on top of the league rankings with 10 points, followed by Hà Nội and Quảng Ninh Coal. — VNS
