Defender Doan Van Hau opened the scoreboard in the first half. The two goals were made in the second half. The Straits Times of Singapore wrote after losing five SEA Games football finals - 1995, 1999, 2003, 2005, 2009 - Vietnam finally ended that unwanted run with a 3-0 win over Indonesia last night. At Manila's Rizal Memorial Stadium, they had two men to thank - defender Doan Van Hau for his brace and captain Do Hung Dung for a cool finish. While Vietnam's women have won gold six times, including this year after beating Thailand 1-0 on Sunday, their men often fell at the final hurdle. South Vietnam did win the inaugural football title at the 1959 Seap Games in Bangkok.

The Live Sport Asia said defeating Indonesia 3 - 0, the Vietnamese team deserves a gold at SEA Games 30. The Siamsports of Thailand said Vietnam has become a King at SEA Games after 60 years, an achievement worth of coach Park and his team's efforts. Indonesia’s media also expressed admiration for the Vietnamese men’s U22 team. the Bola Sports ran a story saying Indonesia bows to Vietnam, a new Champion in SEA games.
