The Vietnam National Football team (VNFT) played sporadically and lacked the necessary concentration during the first half, creating conditions for UAE players to attack overwhelmingly. However, in the last minutes of the second half, when Minh Vuong was introduced to the field, VNFT had beautiful moves that deserved to be included in the textbook (TBC).

VNFT started the game incoherently when it was mainly defending and breaking the ball. Van Duc played underpower, leaving Tien Linh alone on the attack. Trong Hoang kicked as if he lost his soul, causing the defence system of the Vietnam National Football Team to lack the necessary cover. Xuan Truong was lost in front of the close approach of the opponent...In a game where there were many underpowered positions, VNFT felt like a newcomer. 

UAE has the opening goal. In the 32nd minute, Ali Hassan hit a beautiful finish on the right wing after receiving a pass from his teammates, the ball flew straight into the top corner of the goal of the Vietnam Team.

Mistake after mistake. This time, the person who made the mistake was goalkeeper Tan Truong when he had an unreasonable "outrage" phase and fouled a UAE player. The referee did not hesitate to point at the penalty spot. 

Mabkhout was the one to successfully hit the 11m and give the UAE a 2-0 lead. Minutes later, although VNFT tried to get on the ball, it was not effective and accepted the result of losing 0-2 after the first half in a sporadic game, when they could not hold the ball and sucked in the opponent's style.

In the second half, when the Vietnamese players were not really stable, Tan Truong's net vibrated for the third time. In a simple attack, Khamis' header hit Tan Truong's net to raise the score to 3-0, although the goalkeeper of Vietnam had previously successfully saved another header. In a game with nothing to lose, VNFT had a series of changes, Minh Vuong was introduced to the field and immediately shone. 

In the 83rd minute, receiving a pass from Quang Hai, Minh Vuong had a smart cross and striker Tien Linh went down to kick the ball to shorten the score to 1-3. In the 3rd minute of extra time, Minh Vuong perfectly finished the impressive ball of the Vietnam Team when scoring the second goal to shorten the score to 2-3.

Despite losing, Que Ngoc Hai and his teammates still made history when they won the right to enter the final qualifying round of the World Cup for the first time. Team Vietnam is sure to continue regardless of the result of the match against the UAE, thanks to the help of Australia when they beat Jordan with a score of 1-0. 

This means that the second team of Group B, whether Jordan or Kuwait, will only be counted 8 points when competing for tickets. This score is lower than the achievement of the Vietnam National Football Team. 

Therefore, even in the case of loss to the UAE with a strong score, Vietnam Team is still definitely in the top 5 second-place teams, with the best results and becomes the only representative of Southeast Asian football to participate in the final qualifying round of the 2022 World Cup in Asia.
