Facing Japan, who are eighth on world ranking and 26 places above, Vietnam will find it hard to create a surprise in the last round of group D.

After the first two rounds, Vietnam won 2-0 against Nepal and 6-1 against Bangladesh, placing second in the group. A draw or a narrow defeat will be enough to get Vietnam past the group stage.
