Oseni then completed his hat-trick with 15 minutes remaining with a shot across the keeper. He soon added his fourth as he slotted home on the rebound after Pham Duc Huy’s shot came off the post.
And Ngan Van Dai rounded off the scoring with a close-range header to make it 10-0 and complete Naga World’s humiliation.
