UAE VS Vietnam World Cup LIVE Football Score 15 June 2021
The United Arab Emirates will be aiming to make it five straight wins on Tuesday when they face Vietnam in Group G of the Asian qualifiers for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The match will take place at the Zabeel Stadium in Dubai. Vietnam are unbeaten in their last 10 games across all competitions and will look to maintain this impressive run of results.
The United Arab Emirates continued their charge for a place in the next round of World Cup qualifiers last Friday when they claimed an emphatic 5-0 victory over Indonesia. Ali Mabkhout and Fabio Lima scored in either half to hand the UAE their second successive 5-0 victory over Indonesia.
Last time out, the Emirates thrashed Indonesia 5-0 to keep their hopes of reaching the first-ever Middle Eastern finals alive, as prolific striker Ali Mabkhout netted two more goals. In doing so, Mabkhout overtook veteran India forward Sunil Chhetri as the second-highest active goalscorer in international football, behind only Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo.
Having bolstered his phenomenal strike rate at the Indonesians’ expense, the Al Jazira sharpshooter can now boast a total of 75 goals from 91 appearances for his nation, while Brazil-born Fabio Lima also struck twice against Group G’s bottom side.
A former World Cup finalist as the Netherlands’ coach, back in 2010, head coach Bert van Marwijk will be aware that his team now hold their fate in their own hands ahead of one final fixture in the second qualification phase.
It has been a testing period in charge for the former Feyenoord and Australia manager, as he has already been fired by the Emirati FA in December 2019, following defeat to local rivals Qatar in the Gulf Cup. However, some twelve months later, he returned to the dugout – winning five of his six games since.
