Amid the cheers of 1.6 million spectators at the Kim Pa Stadium, the Vietnamese women’s team entered with confidence and excitement. Without making any probes in front of familiar opponents in Southeast Asia, head coach Mai Dezhong’s students made waves in Thailand’s goal from the first minute.

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.

Not a single goal in the first half

After holding back for a while before the home team attacked, Thailand began to control the ball more and gradually recovered. The Golden Temple team also made the hearts of the Vietnamese audience tremble. On Thailand’s offense, 30-year-old striker Tanekarn Dangda’s wide-ranging maneuverability also caused a lot of difficulties for Chuong Thi Kieu and her teammates.

Taneekarn Dangda is tall and well built, and he always threatens Kim Thanh’s goal due to his sprinting ability. However, the striker’s goal was inaccurate.

With chances but no points, Vietnam and Thailand’s women’s team fell apart in the first 45 minutes with a 0-0 scoreline.

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.
