Vietnam thrashes Macau 7-1 in WCup qualifier

Le Cong Vinh improved on his first-leg hat trick to lead Vietnam

to a 7-1 rout of Macau, helping his country complete a two-game

sweep in the first round of Asian World Cup qualifying Sunday.

Le scored three times in Vietnam’s first-leg 6-0 victory on

Wednesday in Ho Chi Minh City. He matched that performance in the

first half at Macau’s National Stadium, then added two more in the

second half. Nguyen Quang Hai also scored in the 24th minute and

Huynh Quang Thanh added another in the 86th.

Leong Ka Hang put the hosts on the board with a consolation goal

in the 60th.
