U23 Thailand is the dominant team most of the time. Coach Alexandre Polking‘s team held the ball almost twice as much as U23 Vietnam in the first half but did not create many dangerous situations to threaten the home team’s goal.

In the second half, U23 Thailand was still overwhelming in the beginning but created few opportunities. U23 Vietnam played humbly, keeping strength, before bursting out in the last 20 minutes. Besides the two phases of Manh Dung, U23 Vietnam missed a series of other good situations.

Coach Park Hang-seo has sweet revenge on his colleague Polking. After the 31st SEA Games, Coach Park Hang-seo transferred the U23 Vietnam team to another coach.
