Particularly, the Vietnamese team got ahead early with an own goal of Myanmar defender Kyaw Zin Lwin in the 8th minute.
Myanmar sped up the attack after that but it was unsuccessful.
The second goal came to Vietnam in the 27th minute when goalkeeper Tun Nanda Oo couldn’t catch the ball from a cross and the ball found Nguyen Tien Linh, who easily tapped it in.
In the second half, coach Park Hang-seo decided to put several key players out. Van Duc and Chau Ngoc Quang entered the field when Tien Linh and Hung Dung left.
Young striker Chau Ngoc Quang scored a long-range beauty for Vietnam’s third goal in the 73rd minute to complete the 3-0 win.
With three points in the match, Vietnam had 10 points, topping Group B, and will face Indonesia in the AFF Cup semifinal in Jakarta on January 6.
