Vietnam claimed a 1-0 victory over Thailand with a dramatic stoppage-time winner in their first match at the U19 Bangkok Cup 2019 in the Thai capital city on Thursday night.

The teams played 90 goalless minutes with few noteworthy situations before substitute Van Tung scored a close kick in the fourth injury minute of the second half.

Tung’s late goal left the hosts in regret for the chances they had missed, including a finish in the 62nd minute that was excellently saved by Vietnamese keeper Lam Hao.

The remaining time was not enough for the Thai players to find an equalizer as the referee blew the final whistle shortly thereafter.

Vietnam will face South Korea, who had thrashed Uzbekistan 5-1 in a preceding match, in the final of the four-team U19 Bangkok Cup 2019 tomorrow, October 12.

The U19 Bangkok Cup 2019 is held on October 10-12 as a warm-up tournament for the 2020 Asian championship qualifiers next month, which will decide the participating teams of the 2020 AFC U19 Championship.

Thursday night apparently treated Vietnamese football fans well as their national football team also snatched a slim win over Malaysia in their 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier in Hanoi.
