Vietnam's Under-23 footballers lost 0-2 to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea during the second round of the 16th Asian Games in Guangzhou, China on Tuesday.

Facing a more powerful team, the Vietnamese squad played defensively and stood firm until 10 minutes from half time when the Koreans took the lead.

Before and after the break, Vietnam's Ngoc Anh and Van Hieu were sent off with red cards, making the Vietnamese squad much weaker and the Southeast Asian silver medalists conceded another goal midway through the second half.
