However, coach Hoang Anh Tuan and his young men have affirmed that they will not aim for a draw against U20 Iran, known as among the strongest in Asia, in their match at 5:00 p.m on March 7.
"The last two wins of U20 Vietnam will be meaningless if we lose to Iran," he said. “However, we will not enter the match with any idea about a draw.”
Meanwhile, Iranian team’s coach Abdolsamad Marfavi confidently told the media that he has found ways to beat U20 Vietnam after analysing its win against Australia, calling the squad a good team impressive in deploying their tactics in the match.
Vietnam is in Group B together with Iran, Australia, and Qatar at the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U20 Asian Cup finals which is taking place in Uzbekistan.
