    Vietnam score the third!

    From a freekick, centre-back Nguyen Thanh Chung taps it in for Vietnam to make it 3-0.

After beating Brunei 8-0 and Indonesia 1-0, Vietnam will have to beat Thailand outright tonight to earn the top group spot and to secure a win against Thailand tonight to earn a spot and secure automatic qualification for the AFC U23 Championship.

They will probably be eliminated if they lose to Thailand and face a tricky time if they draw.

Vietnam's coach Park Hang-seo has admitted that Thailand have a quality roster while Vietnam did not have enough preparation time to ensure perfect teamwork and synchronization.
