A 6-0 victory over the East Timor women’s team helped Vietnam’s women’s team win a ticket to the 2022 AFC Cup women’s semi-final before the round. In this game, coach Mai Dezhong made the students actively attack from the beginning. In the 10th minute, Huang Yu opened the scoring for the Vietnamese women’s team. At the end of the first half, the Vietnamese girl scored 4 goals. Into the second half, the pace of the game continued to be pushed up. Fan Su scored the fifth goal in the 72nd minute. Then, in the 84th minute, Thuy Trang scored a goal to make it 6-0. Although not letting the opponent concede defeat, coach Mai Dezhong still thinks the students did not play well. After the game, Mr. Zhong shared:
“We’ve played three games since the regular season and we’ve changed the lineup every game. However, some games the players can play and some games are not very good. Today I still don’t feel good and satisfied, maybe it’s raining Yes, the yard is slippery.”
The victory helped the Vietnamese women’s team rise to the top of the standings with a gap of 9 points and +14. Meanwhile, the Myanmar women’s team ranked second with 9 points, a difference of +12 points. These are also the two teams confirmed to advance to the semi-finals and will determine the top spot in the confrontation at the Rizal Memorial Stadium in Manila on the afternoon of July 13.
“Our goal is to play game by game. We are in the top position, and in theory a draw is king. In the other group, tomorrow I will watch the Philippines and Thailand games.” Coach Mai Dezhong said.
