Scored: Encarnacao 7′, Nazareth 21′.

The match against Portugal is considered the biggest opportunity for Vietnam to make a mark at the World Cup, as this is a lighter opponent than the US and the Netherlands in Group E. Vietnam got off to a promising start, rushing forward early.

Thanh Nha (white) and her teammates started well but could not maintain their position against Portugal.

Portugal participated in the Women’s World Cup for the first time like Vietnam, but their level was superior.

Due to their poor shape and physical strength, the two central midfielders stepped up again, Vietnam’s defense system was quickly broken when Portugal launched an attack.

After losing two goals, coach Mai Duc Chung made tactical adjustments, helping the team defend more tightly with a deep-lying formation.

In the second half, the coaching staff asked the team to play slower, more firmly and execute the correct tactical plan.

On the Portuguese side, Jessica Silva did not score or assist but continued to play an important role in the play of the team ranked 21st in the world.

Huynh Nhu (No. 9) did not have much of the ball in Vietnam’s underdog position.

Empty-handed after two matches, Vietnam will definitely be eliminated from the 2023 World Cup. In the final match of the group stage on August 1, the team faced runner-up in the tournament against the Netherlands.
