Asian Cup 2019: Việt Nam’s Memorable Journey
Việt Nam, along with China, South Korea, and Australia bid farewell to the Asian Cup 2019, a tournament where Việt Nam made the most remarkable impact. Facing Japan, the only Asian team to advance from the group stage in the 2018 World Cup and the most successful nation in Asian Cup history, Việt Nam displayed great resilience. Not only did they maintain disciplined defense, allowing Japan only one penalty goal with the assistance of VAR, but they also had opportunities to score against Japan, even outnumbering them with 12 shots compared to Japan’s 11.
Despite their valiant efforts, Việt Nam unfortunately lost 0-1 to Japan, ending their campaign. However, many fans believed that if Việt Nam had faced China instead of Japan, they could have reached the semi-finals. This belief stemmed from China’s disappointing performance against Iran, as they suffered a humiliating 0-3 defeat due to consecutive defensive errors. South Korea and Australia, both strong contenders, were also unexpectedly eliminated in the quarter-finals. South Korea failed to convert their continuous pressure into goals against Qatar, while UAE capitalized on a defensive mistake by Australia, securing a 1-0 victory.
