Vietnam made a huge surprise after they beat Jordan by penalty shootout and qualified to the Asian Cup quarter finals. China made a comeback against Thailand and booked a spot at the next round.
Everything was ready for the Clásico of Middle Eastern football between Iran and Iraq. Even though the game was goalless and there was more than one clash between the players, it was one of the best matches of the tournament.
After two matches without points, Vietnam can still feel proud and hopeful as they see the youngest team in the tournament play well.
Vietnam failed to defeat Iraq in their first match, but they still can be optimistic for their next matches and maybe also for their next Asian Cups.
