In the 80th minute of the confrontation between Vietnam and Malaysia, Van Thanh and Van Toan had a situation of coordination in the opponent’s penalty area. After that, the Hai Duong-born striker was fouled by the Malaysian defender. Standing very close in that situation, Japanese referee Ryuji Sato pointed at the 11m free kick.
The person taking this penalty kick is Que Ngoc Hai. Terrible pressure was created when the captain of the Vietnamese team needed to make a successful kick to put the boys in red to take the lead.
Not stopping there, Que Ngoc Hai was also provoked by the opponent’s striker. De Paula, a Malaysian naturalized striker who had just successfully taken a penalty earlier, ran to Hai Que’s side. The Brazilian-born player had a number of exchanges with the aim of encouraging the captain of the Vietnamese team.
However, with bravery and experience, Hai Que successfully performed this penalty to raise the score to 2-1.
It was also the last goal of the Vietnamese team in the match against Malaysia. The 3 points obtained help teachers and coaches Park Hang-seo protect the top of Group G, the 2022 World Cup qualifier.
