At the 31st SEA Games, the first group of the Vietnamese team had a slight change compared to recent tournaments, when Tu Minh Quang was placed in the usual position held by Le Quoc Nam. The home team played a pre-emptive attack and the tactical calculations of coach Pham Minh Giang promoted early. Minh Tri opened the scoring as soon as the ball rolled less than a minute.
In the next minutes, the Vietnamese team created more dangerous opportunities but could not score more goals. Meanwhile, goalkeeper Ho Van Y did not have to work much because his teammates constantly approached and put pressure on the opponent, making the opponent not have many opportunities to finish.
In the second half, the game became more even. The Indonesian players played more fiercely, trying to raise the squad to find an equalizer. Just like at the Southeast Asian futsal tournament not long ago, coach Pham Minh Giang’s students revealed mistakes when they needed to protect the score.
The Vietnamese team let Indonesia equalize in the second half. Syauqi Syaud was the scorer for Indonesia.
The remaining minutes of the match were played in a double attack. Both Vietnam and Indonesia wanted to get 3 points, but neither team scored. The match ended in a 1-1 draw.
In the previous match, Thailand won against Malaysia with an overwhelming score of 6-2. Thus, after the first match, Thailand temporarily leads with 3 points, followed by Vietnam and Indonesia with the same 1 point. Myanmar rests in the first round, so it has the same 0 points as Malaysia.
In the next match, the Vietnamese team will face Malaysia at 4 pm on May 14. Coach Pham Minh Giang’s teachers and students have a break in the third round before entering the final two matches at the 31st SEA Games against Myanmar (May 18) and Thailand (May 20).
