Before the first half ended, Vietnam created numerous dangerous situations for Avispa Fukuoka’s goal but they were not lucky enough to find the net.

In the second half, coach Thang changed four players in his formation, however, the Japanese side chose a safe tactic so no goals were made.

It is the first time a team from J-League 1 has competed with the Vietnamese national team.
