The team showed the strong will, bravery, and noble spirit of Vietnamese people, he said.

He hoped that under the leadership of head coach Park Hang-seo, the team will prepare themselves thoroughly, unite together, and play tenaciously to gain a victory in the match, thus achieving the targets set before the tournament.

Millions of fans across the country are looking forward to the match, with great support for their team, he said.

After the earlier matches in Group D, both squads ended up with no point, with Vietnam getting -3 and Yemen - 8 in goal difference. To have a chance to advance to the next round, they need to win and score as many goals as possible.

So far, 12 teams have made their entry to the knockout round, which are the UAE, Jordan, China, the Republic of Korea, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Japan, Uzbekistan, Bahrain and Thailand.
