Vietnam through to Last 16
It has been confirmed that Vietnam will progress to the Knockout Phase of the 2019 AFC Asian Cup despite finishing the group stages with equal points and a similar goal difference to Lebanon.
With Bahrain, Kyrgyzstan and Oman having qualified as the three best third placed teams in the group stages, the final qualification spot between Vietnam and Lebanon was decided based on disciplinary record.
Vietnam had accumulated 5 yellow cards throughout the group stages while Lebanon, unfortunately, accumulated a total of 6 yellow cards.
The Golden Dragons are set to face Jordan in the 2019 AFC Asian Cup Round of 16 this Sunday, 7.00pm at the Rashid Al-Maktoum Stadium.
