The U23 Vietnam team failed to secure the top spot in the men’s Group A at the 31st Southeast Asian Games after a 0-0 draw with the U23 Philippines in the second game.

After two games, Vietnam U23 and Philippines U23 are tied by 4 points, but continue to lag behind due to this goal difference.

However, this result does not affect the chances of Vietnam U23 continuing to advance. Head coach Park Hengrui only needs to meet two easier opponents in front, U23 Myanmar and U23 East Timor.

After this game, Vietnam U23 will be sidelined for 5 days and will return on May 13 to face Myanmar U23.

Myanmar U23 is also the opponent U23 Philippines in Group A’s next match on March 10.

In this afternoon’s game, Myanmar U23 officially played and defeated U23 East Timor 3-2.

The victory helped Myanmar U23 temporarily enter Group A, one game less than U23 Vietnam and U23 Philippines.
