With six goals, Linh shared the title of Top Scorer with Thailand’s Teerasil Dangda at the 2022 AFF Championship.

Many of his six goals came at crucial times.

In the group stage, the Vietnamese striker scored three goals in the matches against Laos, Malaysia, and Myanmar.

In the knockout round, Linh continued to shine with three goals, including two in the semifinal second leg against Indonesia.

In the final first leg against Thailand, he opened the scoring for the Golden Stars, marking his sixth goal in the tournament.

In the final second leg on Monday evening, Linh had several opportunities to improve his record but failed to convert any.

If he had succeeded, the Vietnamese player would have definitely become the only top scorer of the championship, as Dangda was not playing in the match.

Nevertheless, Linh’s achievement is still praiseworthy, as this is the most goals he has scored after participating in three AFF championships.

Linh netted only one goal at the 2018 AFF Championship and two at the 2020 AFF Championship.

He also broke the record as the Vietnamese player with the most goals in an AFF tourney. This record previously belonged to Le Huynh Duc in 2002.

The record for the most goals in an AFF championship belongs to Noh Alam Shah of Singapore, who scored 10 goals in 2007.

The AFF Championship is a biennial football tournament organized by the AFF for men’s national teams in Southeast Asia.

Thailand successfully defended their title after a 1-0 victory over Vietnam in the second leg of the final on Monday.
