Vietnam have been placed in Pot 3 for the 2018 Asian Games football draw, together with Malaysia, Laos, Jordan, Yemen, Bangladesh, Philippines and Hong Kong.
The draw was taken place on Monday at the meeting of the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) ahead of the 2018 Asian Games (ASIAD), which will be held in Indonesia this August.
32 teams were divided into 4 seeded groups. The top seeds are still big names such as Japan, Korea, Iran, Uzbekistan and hosts Indonesia.
Thailand were placed in the No. 2 seed with China, North Korea, Qatar …
Although the Vietnamese progressed to the final of this year’s AFC Championship, they could not be seeded in the higher pot.
As the results of the grouping, the Young Golden Stars would face a lot of difficulties in the group stage of 2018 ASIAD.
