The volcano of joy erupted afresh as all of Vietnam celebrated the men’s football team’s latest victory, Thursday night.
From Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc to the man on the street, Vietnam was cock-a-hoop over the 2-1 second leg semifinal victory over the Philippines at the My Dinh Stadium in Hanoi.
Nguyen Quang Hai scored in the 83rd minute thanks to a beautiful tap-in by Phan Van Duc. Three minutes later, Nguyen Cong Phuong doubled the score after dribbling past Philippines' defenders.
The Philippines shortened the gap as James Younghusband scored in the 89th minute, but not enough to advance.
