On the evening of May 21st at Cam Pha Stadium (Quang Ninh), head coach Mai Duc Chung launched the strongest lineup with names like Kim Thanh, Thu Thuong, Chuong Thi Kieu, Hoang Thi Loan, Nguyen Thi Van , Bich Thuy, Tuyet Dung or especially Huynh Nhu.

Amid the cheers of 1.6 million spectators, the Vietnamese women’s team entered with confidence and excitement.

In the first 20 minutes, the home side created many chances, from stops and finishes from Nguyen Thi Van, Bich Thuy or Huynh Nhu. However, goalkeeper Boon Sin was brilliant when he turned down at least 3 delicious chances from Vietnam. The Thai side also worked hard to get back the score, and there were obvious situations.

With chances but no goals, the women’s team Vietnam and Thailand parted ways with a 0-0 scoreline in the first 45 minutes.

Into the second half, the two teams still played brilliantly in a tit-for-tat way. Thailand tried to keep the pressure on Vietnam’s goal, but it was in this situation that the visitors conceded a goal.

In the 59th minute, after the visiting team stole the ball, the Vietnamese female players organized a quick counterattack. Duong Thi Van deftly played an open space for Huynh Nhu to escape the offside trap and overtake goalkeeper Boonsing before scoring the opening goal for Vietnam.

Cam Pha Stadium was emotional after Huynh Nhu’s important goal.

The captain, who wears the No. 9 jersey, explains why she is the best female player in Vietnamese football in recent years.

After taking the lead, the Vietnamese girls relieved their psychological pressure and played more freely. Tuyet Dung, Huynh Nhu or Thuy Trang all had a chance to double the difference, but unfortunately failed. Meanwhile, Thailand tried to increase the pressure but couldn’t beat Kim Sung for the rest of the time.

1-0 was the final result of the match, helping the Vietnamese women’s team to win the prestigious gold medal at the 31st Southeast Asian Games.

Joy and happiness are the feelings of fans following Coach McDezhong and his students at this moment.

This is the seventh time in the history of Vietnamese girls that they have won the SEA Games.

This is also the second time that the Vietnamese women’s team has scored consecutive hat tricks in this arena.

The image of the beloved Uncle Ho appeared at the awards ceremony for the Vietnamese women’s team.

Deputy Prime Minister Wu Dedan, head of the National Steering Committee of the 31st Southeast Asian Games, took a group photo with the team.

The Vietnamese women’s football team continues to hold the title of “Queen” of Southeast Asia.

Huynh Nhu and his teammates held the gold medal of the 31st SEA Games and celebrated with the familiar way of throwing flowers.

At 7 pm on May 22, in the men’s football final of the 31st Southeast Asian Games against Thailand U23 held at the National Stadium, this achievement by Mr. Mai Dezhong and his students will be a huge boost for the Vietnamese U23 players. .
