However, from a Chinese Taipei throw-in the ball struck Quoc Nam’s leg and flew into Viet Nam’s goal, leaving the match tied 1-1 at half-time.

After the break, Viet Nam struggled in and defence, conceding a second goal and allowing Chinese Taipei to run out 2-1 winners.

According to Tran Anh Tu, part of the futsal team’s management unit, Viet Nam didn’t perform up to their ability, missing many chances to score defending poorly.

With this loss, Viet Nam must win all three remaining matches to ensure they qualify for the quarter-finals.

Viet Nam won eight golds, seven silvers and 12 bronzes to rank third, behind China and South Korea in the 2013 edition of the contest in South Korea.
