As a guest on the Korean team’s field, it is predicted that Vietnam will hardly have a chance to make a surprise even though coach Jurgen Klinsmann uses many young players. But in the end, the German strategist arranged a series of key pillars, including big stars like Son Heung Min, Kim Min Jae or Lee Kang In. Therefore, it is not surprising that coach Philippe Troussier’s team was overwhelmed from the beginning of the match.
Korea took the lead early in the 5th minute, starting from a corner on the right wing, Kim Min Jae jumped high and headed through Dang Van Lam’s net. Having scored an early goal, Klinsmann’s students continued to push their team up and continuously forced Van Lam to face dangerous situations. However, the home team had to wait nearly 20 minutes to double the gap.
In the 27th minute, Lee Jae Sung made a classy pass to completely eliminate Vietnam’s defense, before Hwang Hee Chan chose an impressive position and beat Van Lam with a decisive finish. . Before the first half ended, it was Jae Sung’s turn to bring home the third goal for Korea, but he could not beat Van Lam even though he was facing this goalkeeper.
Entering the second half, Vietnam played quite well in the first minutes after teacher Troussier’s substitutions, but Van Lam had to go into the net early to pick up the ball in the 50th minute after an own goal from Vo Minh Trong, in Heung Min’s attempt to block the ball from entering. 10 minutes later, the score increased to 4-0 for Korea, when Son Heung Min scored a classy shot in the penalty area after a wall situation with Hee Chan.
In the 61st minute, Vietnam was forced to play without players after Bui Hoang Viet Anh’s red card. This is essentially a controversial situation, because Viet Anh touched the ball first, had little impact on Heung Min, and even the players on the Korean side actively explained to the referee. However, the decision remained the same, and the home team soon scored the 5th goal in the 70th minute after a classy left-footed shot from Lee Kang In.
In the final minutes of the match, Korea still tried to organize an attack, and by the 86th minute, Van Lam was no longer able to stand. He could not control the ball after Hee Chan’s shot, before Jeong Woo Yeong stepped in just in time and easily put the ball into the empty net. In the end, Vietnam lost with a score of 0-6, officially ending the friendly match series in October.
