Thursday, by defeating Malaysia 1-0, Vietnam picked up their first victory in the qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup.

Vietnam, playing on home turf, took a lot of solid shots against the goal of Malaysia. When Nguyen Quang Hai took a fine pass from captain Que Ngoc Hai and scored from a tight corner, their efforts were rewarded in the 40th minute.

Quang Hai's shot earlier found the net, but it was indeed ruled offside.

Malaysia launched several attacks that failed to break through the strong defense of Vietnam.
