Lam named among best 10 goalies of World Cup qualifiers
After three matches in the World Cup qualifiers, thanks to the outstanding performance of Lam, Vietnam tied goalless with Thailand, beat Malaysia 1-0 and Indonesia 3-1 to rank second in Group G.
The top 10 also includes Jo Hyeon-woo of the Republic of Korea, Junling Yan of China, Alireza Beiranvand of Iran and Siwarak Tedsungnoen of Thailand.
The confederation also named goalies from Qatar, Japan, Australia, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and Tajikistan.
Vietnam are currently among the top four best second-placed teams in the Asian zone’s second qualifying round for the World Cup 2022.
According to the AFC, the teams to progress to the next round of qualification will be the eight group winners, along with the four best runners-up. As Qatar are World Cup hosts and qualify for the tournament automatically, if they win their group or finish as one of the four best second-placed teams, their spot in the next qualifying round will be given to the fifth best second-placed team.
If the Vietnamese national team are able to hold their current position, they will progress to the next round of qualification.
Vietnam still have five matches to play, including three home fixtures against the UAE, Thailand, and Indonesia, and two away games against the UAE and Malaysia./.
