Chloe Logarzo - 7.5

Penalty miss aside, Logarzo was one of Australia's strongest competitors tonight. Again, the final ball was her biggest weakness.

However her insistence on working inside, finding dangerous positions and trying difficult, heroic through balls was refreshing in an otherwise dour encounter.

Elise Kellond-Knight - 6.5

KK looked slightly shaky from the off and it appeared to work its way through the team.

Her passing was slightly off-kilter and her one-on-one challenges - usually so ferocious - were timid to say the least. A tough gig for the defensive midfielder against a deep Vietnamese line.

Emily van Egmond - 7.5

Another highlight, van Egmond was a breath of fresh air in that midfield despite her lack of game-winning impetus.

She moves so confidently around the pitch that even when her first-time flicks don't find their mark, she lifts the tempo and intimidates the opposition.

Hayley Raso - 7

Another wincing moment when Raso was tumbled viciously by Vietnamese goalkeeper Tran Thi Kim Than, who had a fantastic night, summed up Raso's involvement.

She was energetic and hugely valuable breaking down the flanks and giving us width in those attacking positions, but she was a second off the pace and just couldn't make it count tonight.

Sam Kerr - 8

Even on a quiet night Kerr manages something special and that breakthrough goal on the 15th minute, no matter how many headlines it writes, will still probably go under the radar.

In a match where a plethora of off-field issues and a lack of intensity hampered the squad, Kerr's perfect volley out of nowhere summed up just how deadly she is in front of goals.

Caitlin Foord - 7

One off the post aside, a quiet night for Foord, who was also likely suffering from a hectic travelling schedule between England and Australia and Vietnam in recent times.
