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.
Accordingly, with being in the 2nd seed group, Vietnam will have a relatively favorable schedule.
Specifically, in the first match on September 5, Vietnam will be a guest on the field of the team in group 3.
On October 10, Vietnam will return to My Dinh Stadium to welcome the team of group 4. 5 days later, Vietnam will be a guest on the field of the team of group 5.
It was not until November 14 that Vietnam clashed with the team of the first seed group. After 5 days, Vietnam will continue to meet the team of group 3. But the advantage for Park Hang Seo’s teachers and students is in 2 matches. We all played at My Dinh’s home ground.
If we could play well against weaker opponents, we could have accumulated at least 9 to 15 points after the 5 matches mentioned above.
With such a score, the opportunity for Vietnam to win the right to enter the final qualifying round of the 2022 World Cup in Asia (corresponding to the ticket to the 2023 Asian Cup Finals) is possible.
