The Vietnam women’s national football team lost 1-2 to Germany in their friendly match on Sunday morning, with striker Nguyen Thi Thanh Nha scoring the only goal for the visitors in the 90th+2 minute.

Hosts Germany pressured Vietnam a lot right from the start of the game.

It took the German players three minutes to net the first goal with a simple attempt.

Anymoni made the most of her technical and physical advantages to run down to the right flank, paving the way for Krumbiegel to open the scoring.

The Vietnamese players, however, were not downbeat seeing their opponents netting first in the game.

The squad under Vietnamese head coach Mai Duc Chung played resiliently, strengthening their defense after coping with pressure from the opposing team.

In the first half, two Vietnamese players, Hai Yen and Duong Thi Van, took beautiful long shots, prompting German keeper Merle Frohms to show all her skills to prevent the goals.

The German players maintained high pressing tactics in the second half, with head coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg changing her tactics a lot.

The physical deterioration in the Vietnamese squad’s performance in the second half partly made them compete less fiercely than in the first one, but they managed to stay focused on the game.

Some rapid counter-attacks by the Vietnamese repeatedly startled German fans.

Tuyet Dung took advantage of a German defender's mistake to steal the ball and come face to face with goalie Merle Frohms, but her shot from a narrow angle failed to send the ball into the net.

Three minutes after the missed opportunity, Minge helped the Germans score the second goal.

In added time, Vietnamese striker Thanh Nha made a rapid counter-attack and scored the first and only goal for Vietnam.

The match wrapped up in a 1-2 loss for the Southeast Asian visitors.​
