Vietnam VS Singapore LIVE Football Score 21/09/2022
Singapore and Vietnam face each other in the first match of the Hung Thinh International Football Tournament 2022 in Vietnam. India are also taking part in this friendly tournament. Last time these two team face was back in 2016 in the AYA Bank Cup where the match ended in 0-0 draw in regulation time. Vietnam won the match 3-0 on extra-time. The match between Vietnam and Singapore will be played at Thong Nhat Stadium and the kick-off is scheduled at 7 pm Local time.
Vietnam will host Singapore at the Thong Nhat Stadium in Ho Chi Minh City on Wednesday in the opening game of the VFF Tri-Nations Series. The Golden Star Warriors, ranked 97th in the world, will play for the first time in over three months, having beaten Afghanistan 2-0 in a friendly on June 1. Having missed out on FIFA World Cup qualification yet again, Park Hang-seo’s team will participate in December’s AFF Championship. This month’s double-header to Singapore and India is an opportunity to prepare for the same. Meanwhile, Singapore are looking to bounce back from their disappointment of failing to qualify for next year’s Asia Cup.
The Lions out in the third round of the qualifiers after finishing third in Group F with just one win in three games. The Golden Star Warriors have called up 31 players for this month’s friendly games against Singapore and India, including six who are uncapped. Experienced midfielder Nguyen Quang Hai is the only foreign-based player in the squad, plying his trade with French second tier outfit, Pau.
We have two national teams that sometimes score goals but in general, you cannot really expect much from them. Especially in this case, most of the good players are not even in the squad because the team has nothing to prepare. We will not see incredible football, which could also mean that there could be more goals, but we expect the opposite.
We can never know what could happen in a game between Vietnam and Singapore, because these are two weak national teams and they sometimes play well while sometimes, they play like amateurs. If either team is going to do good in this game, it should be Vietnam, who generally played some good games in the recent couple of years, mostly qualifications. Singapore’s form has been problematic, especially when they play somewhere away and they often do not score goals.
The odds for this game are not available yet for some reason but we expect Vietnam to be a big favorite here, hopefully not too big. They have the better squad of players as a whole and despite the bad final position in the World Cup qualifiers, the team showed some spirit and won games against teams like China at home. They also had draws against Japan and Thailand, and more.
Vietnam failed to qualify for the World Cup this year after reaching the third stage of the qualifiers, where they finished last in their group. There is some potential in this national team right now and we saw it as early as last year when they reached the Semi-finals of the AFF Championship but failed. The team can definitely contest lower-level national tournaments and we could see some sort of success in the coming years.
Of course, Singapore also failed to qualify for the World Cup and more recently, they failed to qualify for the Asian Cup too. The team has been having serious problems, especially on the road, and it is unfortunate after a successful 2021. The team also reached the semi-finals of the AFF Championship but was part of the other semi-final, which they also lost. But as you can see, the difference in level here is not that big.
