Vietnam grouped with familiar opponents in Asian U20 Futsal

Vietnam is in Group C with Japan and Tajikistan, teams they faced in the first phase of the previous tournament.

In the inaugural edition in 2017, the same three teams competed in Group B. Vietnam beat Tajikistan 4-2 but lost 1-3 to Japan.

Last edition was not a very unsuccessful journey for Vietnam, as they were eliminated right at the group stage.
