Although the Australian dominated most of the first half, chances were rare on both goals until the 43rd minute when Agden Hrostic crossed a cross to the head of his team-mates Ryan Grant, who sent in goal the first goal of the guests. The Vietnam team tried to seek an amendment in the second half, and their player Nguyen Pong Hong penetrated from the left and reversed a quick ball in area penalty, which was successfully saved by the Australian goalkeeper in the 57th minute.

Van Duc nearly equalized for Vietnam with a surprising shot, but Australian goalkeeper Matt Ryan narrowly saved him in the 61st minute, after which the Australian team resumed taking the lead in the final quarter of the match . Qatar referee Abdul Rahman Al-Jassem disallowed a goal to Australian Mitchell Dock in the 87th minute for offside, so the result remained unchanged until the final whistle, which sparked the joys of the guests with the second win and the top of the bunch.
