Despite some tidy football against Iraq, luck was not in their side leaving their fans frustrated. But a new day brings new challenge and Iran will probably be even tougher to play compared to the Lions of Mesopotamia. Iran is one of the contenders for the trophy can book their place in the next round with a win.

Iran have the some of the best talents in Asian football yet have won nothing till date. Under coach Carlos Queiroz the expectation are high once again for the team to do well. Sardar Azmoun has 25 goals in 41 starts for Iran and is an exciting prospect. He got a brace in the game against Yemen along with another two goal hero Mehdi Taremi.

Masoud Shojaei dominated the middle of the park for Iran and probably will face a lot tougher opposition in Vietnam today. Portuguese gaffer Carlos Queiroz has already made his team aware of how dangerous the Vietnamese can be and spoke highly of them in the pre-match press conference.

Vietnam led twice yet threw away the leads only to lose against Iraq which must have been a body blow. Coach Park Hang-Seo will need to remind his team they are capable of causing an upset only if their defending improves.

The likes of Que Ngoc Hai and Do Duy Man in the back four have to keep their concentration level up with someone like Sardar Azmoun running at you. Striker Nguyen Cong Phuong got off the mark with a goal in the last game and will be hoping he can add onto the tally.

Vietnam are a good side that won 2018 AFF Championship and can make life difficult for Iran who should ultimately get all three points in the bag.
