The former champions will face off against Thailand in a crucial decider that will have important consequences for the championship draw.

Viet Nam arguably competes in the toughest section of the draw which includes competitors Australia, Thailand, Malaysia and Jordan.

While pundits have Australia pegged to gain a ticket to the next round, Viet Nam will likely face off with Jordan and Thailand to battle for the remaining spot.

Viet Nam took out the title last year after overcoming Myanmar 4-3 in a tight penalty shootout at the final in HCM City.
