Nguyen Tien Linh opened score for Vietnam right in the third minute of the first half after a long pass from Hung Dung.

After conceding an early goal, Indonesia team could not play heavy on defense anymore. They had to push forward and then the hosts got more space for counter-attacks.

Tien Linh scores a double in Vietnam's victory over Indonesia on January 9 at AFF Cup 2022 semi-final.

Two minutes into the second half, Tien Linh again had an unstoppable header to double the lead for Vietnam after captain Do Hung Dung's corner.

After conceding two goals, Indonesia had nothing to lose. The visitors then pushed more pressure to find a goal back. They also made two substitutions to increase firepower.

However, they made hopeless efforts for the rest of the second half and had no chance to score a goal.

Coach Park Hang-seo and his team express gratitude to fans after the victory.

With the  2-0 victory at their home playground, the Vietnam team advanced to the final of the AFF Mitsubishi Electric Cup 2022, where they will play against the winners of another semifinal between Thailand and Malaysia.
