HÀ NỘI — Việt Nam crushed the Philippines 6-1 in the fourth match of Group A at the ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) U-16 Championship on Saturday following their 4-2 loss to hosts hosts Indonesia last Thursday.
They controlled the game from the whistle and Văn Thông opened the scoring in the 20th minute, before Quốc Hoàng and Văn Chung made it 3-0 at half time.
After the break, Việt Nam extended their lead with two goals from Hoàng and one from Ngọc Thanh. The Philippines found a consolation in the 50th minute due to an error by Vietnamese goalie Văn Việt.
Việt Nam will next meet Myanmar today.
The AFF tournament will be a warm-up for Việt Nam to prepare for the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-16 Championship to be held in Malaysia in September. — VNS
