HA NOI — Midfielder Hoang Nhat Nam scored Sanna Khanh Hoa’s only goal to help his team defeat Quang Ninh Coal by a score of 1-0, in the fifth round of the V.League 1 yesterday.

Making full use of their home advantage, the Sanna Khanh Hoa players, coached by Vo Dinh Tan, dominated the game during the first 20 minutes.

The visitors, Quang Ninh Coal, fought back with strong attacking play by Pham Nguyen Sa, Nguyen Hai Huy and Nghiem Xuan Tu.

However, without their key striker Eydison Teofilo Soares, who was out with an injury, Quang Ninh Coal could not score during the first half.

After the break, Tan changed his team’s tactics and substituted players to win the three points.

In the 55th minute, Quang Ninh midfielder Duong Thanh Hao illegally tackled striker Lam Ti Phong inside the 16.5 metre area, and the hosts won a penalty. However, striker Youssouf Toure failed to beat the Quang Ninh goalkeeper, Huynh Tuan Linh.

In the 79th minute, after receiving a spectacular pass from Toure, Nam scored the opener for Khanh Hoa.  

With the win, Khanh Hoa is now on top of the league rankings with 10 points, followed by Ha Noi and Quang Ninh Coal. — VNS
