Vietnam defeat Young Socceroos

A late goal from Vietnam striker Cong Phuong sealed a 1-0 win over Australia in the first Group B game at the 2014 ASEAN Football Federation U19 Youth Championship on Friday.

Held in Hanoi, Vietnam, the competition serves as preparation for the AFC U19 Championship in Myanmar next month.

The four semi-finalists from that competition will then go on to represent AFC at the 2015 FIFA U20 World Cup, which will be held in New Zealand next year.

Paul Okon's men went down 1-0 to Vietnam on Friday following a brilliant solo-effort from Phuong in the 89th minute of the game.

Australia's second and final group game will be against Japan on Sunday.
