Southeast Asia football transforms spectacularly in the FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifier

Vietnam, Thailand and the Philippines performed brilliantly and achieved great results in the 4th matchday of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying round in Asia.

After the previous match with only 1 victory and 5 losses, representatives of Southeast Asian football had a spectacular makeover in the match which took place on the evening of October 15th.

First of all, Vietnam is considered as the first flag of ASEAN football. Following the success of the previous matches, Park Hang Seo's army excelled in Indonesia's field. Scoring 3 goals in the opponent's net, Vietnam has the second successive victory in the FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifier, winning 7 points and continues to rank 2nd in Group G.

If the perspective Vietnam beat Indonesia is not too surprising, Thailand's defeat against the UAE is really considered a shock. Welcoming a very strong opponent from West Asia at home, Akira Nishino's team played a fantastic game, they soon took the lead and even if the UAE leveled the gap, the Thais could still score more goals in 2nd half to get all 3 points. This impressive result helped Thailand get 7 points after 3 matches with Vietnam, but ranked above thanks to the better goal difference.

There may not be 3 points like Vietnam and Thailand, but the Philippines still deserves countless compliments for their performance against China. Although the opponent was much appreciated, Etheridge and his teammates still played fairly well. The 1-1 draw did not help the Philippines improve their position in Group A, but their chances in the FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifiers are still relatively bright, with a score of 4 points after 3 matches.

With Cambodia, many people suppose that after the defeat of 0-14 against Iran, this team will collapse when facing Iraq. However, by playing at home, the small team of Southeast Asia played a brave match, they only lost 0-4 to an opponent that is much stronger than themselves.

Another team that lost but deserved to be praised is Singapore. Clashing very a strong opponent: Uzbekistan, the Lion island nation team played well and scored 1 goal. Although losing 1-3 but it is also a commendable achievement for this team.

Among the Southeast Asian teams playing in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers today, Indonesia is the name that continues to disappoint. This team lost 1-3 to Vietnam, thereby still not having any points after 4 matches played.
