Asian Cup 07 – Vietnam defeats UAE

9 07 2007

We worship football…Hanoi – Vietnam stunned Gulf Cup holders United Arab Emirates on Sunday, presenting them with a 2-0 loss. 2 rapid goals in the second half brought about the shock defeat. UAE were clearly stronger in the first half, but failed to make anything of the advantage. The home side made the most of a terrible mix-up in the UAE defense, and Thanh slotted home a goal in the 63rd minute. 10 minutes later Vinh doubled the advantage, scoring off a beautiful lobbed shot.

This win would definitely be considered the upset, and really makes things interesting in Group B.
