Therefore, only UAE and Palestine have to participate in this more recent draw held at the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) headquarters.
As a result, Palestine will compete with Indonesia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Laos in Group A, while Palestine enters Group E with Malaysia, the Republic of Korea, Bahrain, and Kyrgyzstan.
The men’s football is to set kick off on August 10 and finish on September 2 in Indonesia.
At the ASIAD 2014 held in Incheon, the Vietnam team, under the guidance of Japanese coach Toshiya Miura, progressed from the qualifying round before losing to the UAE in the quarter-finals.
At this year’s ASIAD, the U23 Vietnam team hopes to earn another triumph after coming in second at the 2018 AFC U23 Championship held in China early this year.
