As reported by Bongda365.com, after the success in King’s Cup 2019, the Vietnamese team has added 5.2 points, a total of 1232 points and has made great progress on the FIFA rankings.
Our team has risen to 96th in the world and 15th in Asia, which means it will be in the 2nd seed group at the draw for the 2022 World Cup Qualifiers.
And the draw for the group has not yet been conducted, but FIFA has quickly conducted seeding and determined the schedule for the teams in the above mentioned groups for the second qualifying round of the 2022 World Cup in Asia.
With being in the 2nd seed group, the Vietnamese team will have to play away in the opening match. Specifically, in the first match on September 5, Vietnam will be a guest on the field of the team in group 3.
Having to play away in the opening match will be quite disadvantageous to Coach Park Hang Seo’s army when they do not have the enthusiastic cheers of the home audience.
In addition, the 3rd seed group also has the presence of quite strong opponents, in which some teams are considered to be on par with Vietnam, namely Palestine, India, Thailand, Bahrain, Tajikistan, Philippines, and Taiwan. North China and North Korea.
This will be a very important match as it will largely determine the ticket to the next round of Vietnam.
If we can play well against weaker opponents, we can accumulate points and have an advantage before going home to welcome strong opponents. But without good results, almost our journey will be hopeless.
