Australia took a 2-1 lead in the 34th minute thanks to Courtney Jade Nevin.
Việt Nam fought back strongly to narrow the gap in the second half and created several chances to score but they failed to find the net.
In the 64th minute, Kyra Lillle Conney Cross lifted the score to 3-1 for Australia from a pass in the right wing. Ten minutes later, Australia celebrated the fourth goal. Dung got on the scoresheet once more but to no avail.
