Aleksandar Kolarov, Raheem Sterling and David Silva scored twice each, while substitutes Marcos "Rony" Lopes and Jose Angel Pozo added two more to the Premiership team’s easy win.

Despite all their efforts, the host could net the ball only once for a consolation goal in an unequal game against the topnotch Manchester City players.

Vietnamese striker Nguyen Van Quyet scored a goal for Vietnam at the last minute by trailing a pass from his teammate Tran Chi Cong to jet past a defender before lobbing the ball to stun substitute goalkeeper Willy Caballero.

The consolation goal sparked roaring cheers from around 40,000 of Vietnamese spectators.

The roaring applaud was not a consolation, but an appreciation from fans for the efforts and the sportsmanship of their beloved players.

The match was just like a festive party, where fans 'feasted on' performance from players of both sides.

Only around 200 faithful fans of Manchester City came to root for their team with banners and slogans, while the Vietnamese team had 50 ‘regular’ fans sitting in their familiar D stand.

The remaining fans were there to celebrate the spectacular football displayed by both sides.

Right at the end of the match, an influx of local fans thronged to the streets in celebration of the game./.
