Vietnam need a draw against Tajikistan to secure spot at 2022 Asian Cup finals

VOV.VN - The Vietnamese national women’s football team will progress through to the final round of the 2022 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Women’s Asian Cup providing they secure a draw against hosts Tajikistan in the final match of Group B on September 29.

Vietnam thrashed Maldives 16-0 in their first match, while Tajikistan trounced Maldives 4-0 in the other fixture in Group B.

The goal difference therefore creates a favourable condition for the women’s nation team led by head coach Mai Duc Chung, with a draw against Tajikistan enough to go through to the finals of the 2022 Asian Cup.

However, the Vietnamese team’s aim is to secure three points, meaning they will compete with high determination in the next match against Tajikistan, Chung said.

The leading 12 teams in the qualifiers of the AFC Women’s Asian Cup will then progress to the final round, which is set to take place between January 20 and February 6 in India.

The top five teams will then go on to represent Asia at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
