RELATED NEWS

Dong Tam Long An defenders successfully blocked famed Hoang Anh Gia Lai striker Cong Phuong to defeat the Central Highlands club 2-1 in the 2nd round of the national premier league on Sunday.
Both teams took turns to attack right at the beginning of the match at Long An Stadium that limited the number of spectators to 11,000, despite its capacity of 20,000 people, for fears of security problem at the round’s key match.
In the 23rd minute, Dong Tam Long An took the lead with a header by Chi Cong that defeated Hoang Anh Gia Lai’s goalkeeper Van Tien.
Two minutes later, the host team was rejected a penalty after its captain Tai Em was taken down and got a yellow card for opposing the referee’s decision instead.
Dong Tam Long An made it 2-0 in the 79th minute with a narrow corner shot by Thanh Hai, who was sent to the field in the second half.
Hoang Anh Gia Lai attacked with more headers from Darko Lukanovic but it was an easy shot from the Swedish striker that defeated the host team’s goalkeeper Quoc Cuong who slipped the ball in his hand.
With a 1-1 draw against Hanoi T&T in the first round, Dong Tam Long An advanced to third position with four points, behind Becamex Binh Duong and Hai Phong with six points each.
Hanoi T&T ranked fourth, followed by Hoang Anh Gia Lai, each with three points.
