AFC U23 Asian Cup – Vietnam vs Iraq quarter-final preview

Iraq’s Radhi Shenaishil will go all-in against Vietnam at the AFC U23 Asian Cup Qatar 2024 quarter-final at Al Janoub Stadium on Friday.

With no doubts, Iraq are among the strongest contenders to win the competition. Iraq topped Group C as they finished ahead defending champions Saudi Arabia, manager Shenaishil is ready to assume the favourites tag but admits that a different strategy will be needed to combat Vietnam’s strengths. 

Despite losing to Uzbekistan in their final Group D match, and it’s all in their calculation, they said, Vietnam head coach Hoang Anh Tuan was keen to stress that the result would have little significance in the quarter-final against Iraq.

Hoang made eight changes to the starting lineup against Uzbekistan and will surely field his best players against Iraq as Vietnam look to reach the semi-final stage for the second time in their history.

Khuat Van Khang and Nguyen Van Tung are among those likely to play from the start, and Hoang is confident that his team can surprise Iraq.

More than a quarter-final

The tie is more significant than a quarter-final, as the winners will seal the ticket to the Olympic 2024 in Paris, while the defeats must go through a play-off against Guinea.
