By Minh Nga    NOV. 28, 2019

Nguyen Tien Linh's hat-trick stood out as Vietnamese men posted their second straight facile win in SEA Games football Thursday, beating Laos 6-1.

As in their previous match, Vietnam scored half a dozen goals. Linh’s hat-trick was supplemented with a goal each from Do Hung Dung, Nguyen Trong Hoang and Nguyen Quang Hai.

Vietnam scored very early in the 2nd minute and the team kept looking for goals until the end, with their last one coming right before the final whistle.

Dominating the game throughout, a moment of distraction allowed Laos to score a solitary consolation goal.
