Syria v Vietnam: 0-0
Vietnam was the second-best throughout the game. Syria attack forced Vietnamese players to stay deeply in their ground. Nevertheless Vietnam had the best chance to win this game as Quang Hai found himself in a perfect space in front of Syria goalkeeper but his unbelievable miss at a very close range disappointed everyone.
Cong Vinh ended his disappointing performances with a red card today. It was his second red card in 3 matches. Not much pride for Le Cong Vinh, who is considered best Vietnamese player for recent years. Plus his arrogant comments about his Portuguese time prior to two Syria matches. I wonder if Calisto should consider putting him on the bench in upcoming matches. He's got talent but he needs to play football on earth.
On other side, Vietnam U23 goalkeeper Bui Tan Truong deserved all the praises in this match. He played well, successfully dealing with high balls which were Syria main attacking plan today. He should be given more chances with the national team and I think many fans agree that he would be number-one choice for Vietnam national team in near future.
