Witnessing the surprises of the draw for the second qualifying round of Asia, FIFA decided that Group G was the most interesting group.
“Group G is definitely the most interesting group with the presence of four teams from the same Southeast Asia region. Joining this quartet is the UAE seed team with the determination to find a ticket to the World Cup.
Although highly appreciated, the team that attended the 1990 World Cup in Italy should not underestimate the remaining teams. The Vietnam and Thailand teams are both threats if you look at what they showed at the 2019 Asian Cup in January. Meanwhile, Indonesia and Malaysia can also surprise, “said the FIFA homepage.
The reason why Group G received special attention from FIFA is because the 5 names of this group are considered to be quite balanced. In particular, 4 Southeast Asian teams have understood each other too well. And all have a chance to advance to the next round.
Besides, FIFA also gave a surprising number when the 2022 World Cup qualifiers in Asia lasted for 2 years, 5 months and 24 days. Specifically, the first qualifying round starts from June 6, 2019 until the final name is determined to be present in the final round on November 16, 2021.
With Vietnam Tel, we will open the second qualifying campaign with a confrontation with the great Thai enemy away from home on September 5.
