Lê Minh Bình netted a double for Vietnam in a match where coach Hoang Anh Tuan said his players still made simple mistakes and did not strictly follow his tactics. Vietnam are in the second position in the ranking.
In a later match, Fong Shao-chi brought cheer to Chinese Taipei when he found the net in the 68th minute. Wand Chung-yu then made it 2-0 just four minutes later to ensure a winning start for the hosts.
