Hanoi FC vs Altyn Asyr (20.08.2019)

Dead-ball specialist Nguyen Quang Hai was at his best against Turkmenistan's Altyn Asyr in the 2019 Inter-Zone semi-final, scoring twice in a 3-2 victory. The Hanoi native has forged a reputation for netting exquisite free-kicks and here was another as he left the goalkeeper flat-footed after curling round the wall from 20 yards to tie the score at 1-1.

Hang Yuan FC vs 4.25 SC (14.03.2018)

An Il-bom was the top scorer in the 2018 AFC Cup, with the forward finding the back of the net 12 times in a campaign in which Pyongyang side 4.25 SC reach the Inter-Zone final. His first of two group stage goals in a 5-1 win against Chinese Taipei's Hang Yuan FC saw him cut onto his right foot by the left byline and send a delightful curling effort over the top of the outstretched goalkeeper.
