Sabitra Bhandari scored one consolation for Nepal in the 79th minute in the match at Dasharath Stadium.

It was a dominating display from Vietnam side which Nepal's head coach Ananta Raj Tamang admitted in the post-match. "We now know how the World Cup playing nations play. They scored good goals," said Thapa.

Vietnam's head coach Mai Duc Chung said Nepal also had a good game but need to improve on their technical aspect. "They played a good physical game. Their number nine [Sabitra] is really a good one. But I think they should improve on their technical aspect of the game.

Nepal will play the second match on Saturday in the same venue.
