With support from nearly 5,000 spectators at the gymnasium of Ha Nam province, Vietnamese players made continuous attack attempts right from the match’s beginning.
Nguyen Minh Tri scored a goal for Viet Nam early, and 1 - 0 was also the result of the first half, although both teams spared no efforts to hit the ball into their opponents’ nets.
The Vietnam team proactively played defence in the second half to keep the score. However, Indonesia with excitement and confidence, launched many attacking phases to find the ball’s way to the goal of keeper Ho Van Y.
Despite Y’s excellent performance, Syauqi Saud of Indonesia still succeeded in scoring a leveling goal.
The game ended up in a 1 - 1 tie.
After the first round, Thailand is currently at the top position in the men’s futsal, respectively, followed by Viet Nam and Indonesia.
The next matches will take place between Indonesia and Malaysia at 1pm, and between Viet Nam and Malaysia at 4pm on May 14.
