HÀ NỘI — Việt Nam are in a tricky group for the AFF Futsal Championship in HCM City on October 21-27.
Following a draw on Tuesday in Malaysia, Việt Nam are set to face Australia, Indonesia and Malaysia in Group B.
Australia are one of leading teams in Asia and considered favourites to lift the trophy, Malaysia have beaten Việt Nam several times in the recent past and Indonesia are always a difficult opponent.
Thailand, Myanmar, East Timor and Cambodia are in Group A.
The regional tournament is a qualifier for the Asian championship 2020.
The ASEAN region will have only three instead of four spots as usual at the continental competition.
The national team will be summoned in late September and will train abroad to prepare for the championship. VNS
