The only goal came to Vietnam in the 31st minute when Nguyen Quang Hai fell in Hong Kong's penalty area after getting fouled, and brought the hosts a penalty.

Captain Que Ngoc Hai calmly slotted the ball home for Vietnam. In the remaining minutes, Vietnam made many substitutions using young players, who created a few chances but couldn’t turn them into goals.

Hong Kong also had some attacks but they were not effective. Both teams engaged in a back-and-forth struggle, and there weren't thrilling moments on the pitch.

The game ended with a 1-0 victory for Vietnam, who will play another friendly match against Syria in Thien Truong Stadium in the northern province of Nam Dinh on June 20.
