A win for Vietnam’s in their matchup against Panama on Thursday night, their second fixture in Group D of the FIFA Futsal World Cup Lithuania 2021, means advancing to the tournament’s Round of 16.

National broadcaster VTV will air the game live on VTV6 from 10:00 pm on Thursday (Vietnam time).

In their first group-stage matches, Vietnam suffered a 1-9 defeat against Brazil while Panama lost 1-5 to the Czech Republic.

The results placed Brazil atop Group D, followed by the Czech Republic, Panama, and Vietnam.

Vietnam and Panama each hope for a victory in order to advance to the Round of 16 as one of the four best third-placed teams.

The Vietnamese side currently sit at 44th in the world rankings. Panama, meanwhile, rank 38th. 

Regardless of the rankings, Vietnam hope improvements made to its defending line following their defeat at the hands of Brazil on Tuesday will be enough to pull out a triumph.

The FIFA Futsal World Cup Lithuania 2021 runs from September 12 to October 3.

Of the 24 participating teams, the leaders and runners-up of each of the six groups, as well as the four best third-placed squads, will qualify for the knockout phase.

This is the second time that Vietnam have played in a FIFA Futsal World Cup tournament, following their participation in the 2016 edition in Colombia, where they were eliminated by Russia in the Round of 16.

Vietnam won 2-1 against Pacific Oceania on the first day of Davis Cup Asia-Oceania zone matches Wednesday.

Trinh Linh Giang played first, facing Mainguy Clement. Giang let Clement win the first set, but came back stronger in the next two sets to claim victory.

In the second match, the key player of Vietnam, Ly Hoang Nam, battled Colin Sinclair, the star of Pacific Oceania. Sinclair won the first set and Nam equalized, but the Vietnamese lost in the last set.

After two matches, the score was 1-1 and the result was decided by the final match, as Nam and Le Quoc Khanh played Sinclair and Baudinett Brett in the doubles. The Vietnamese players won the first set, before Pacific Oceania equalized. In an intense third set, Nam and Khanh wrapped it up with a triumph. Overall, Vietnam won 2-1 after 7.5 hours of competition with Pacific Oceania.

This victory pushed Vietnam to the top of their group. The team will play Qatar on the second day Thursday.

Previously, Vietnam had been chosen to host group three of the Davis Cup Asia-Oceania zone. But because of the ongoing Covid-19 wave in the country, the International Tennis Federation instead appointed Jordan as host.
