According to the website, although Vietnam did not win, Cong Phuong held up the ball and passed it well in the final third of the pitch.

“His link-up play eventually led to Vietnam’s second goal”, according to FOX Sports Asia.

The website noted that the Vietnamese maestro was also willing to get into physical duels against the much bigger Iraqi players and his physicality troubled the Iraqi defence throughout the game.
