Hanoi (VNA) – Football website Fox Sports Asia has named Vietnamese defender Que Ngoc Hai one of the 10 best performers from the second round of matches at the ongoing AFC Asian Cup 2019.

“Although he may have finished on the losing side, Que Ngoc Hai was able to walk out of the Al Nahyan Stadium with his head held high after a brave display which saw him lead Vietnam to conceding just two goals against a dominant Iran outfit”, it said

“Vietnam can still dream of reaching the Round of 16 with victory over Yemen in their final Group D match and – in Ngoc Hai – they have the perfect man to rally the troops for the monumental tie”.

Apart from Hai, another player from Southeast Asia – midfielder Chanathip Songkrasin of Thailand - was selected by the football website as he rose to the occasion when his team needed him most with a fine display that culminated in him netting the only goal of the game against Bahrain.

Previously, the football website named Vietnam’s midfielder Nguyen Quang Hai one of the 10 best performers from the opening round.-VNA
