Vietnam earned 1-0 victory against Malaysia in their second qualification match for 2022 World Cup in Hanoi Thursday.

Vietnam picked up their first win in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers Thursday by beating Malaysia 1-0.

Playing on home turf, Vietnam took many solid shots against Malaysia's goal. Their efforts were rewarded in the 40th minute when Nguyen Quang Hai took a fine pass from captain Que Ngoc Hai and scored from a tight corner.

Quang Hai's shot found the net earlier but it was ruled offside.

Malaysia launched many attacks that failed to break through Vietnam's strong defense.

Vietnam had a goalless draw playing Thailand in their first qualification match last month, thus Thursday win was a big relief for fans.

They will play Indonesia away on October 15.
