Indonesia's 2022 World Cup Qualifying Run Ends With 4-0 Beating by Vietnam
Indonesia’s dreams of making it to yet another World Cup is gone, after regional rivals Vietnam thrashed the Garuda 4-0 in their Group G qualification in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates on Monday evening local time.
Nguyen Tien Linh put Vietnam up 1-0 six minutes into the second half. The goal was controversial, as Tien Linh was suspected of manually steadying the ball before scoring.
Vietnam extended their lead through Nguyen Quang Hai in the 62nd minute, Nguyen Phuong Cong in the 67th minute, and Van Thanh Vu in the 72nd minute mark.
The defeat left Indonesia as bottom dwellers in Group G, losing six of seven games, and one draw.
Vietnam is poised to become the first Southeast Asian country to qualify for the World Cup in over 80 years, since Indonesia qualified in 1938 as the Dutch East Indies.
Vietnam lead Group G with 14 points, followed by the United Arab Emirates with 12 points. Southeast Asian stalwarts Thailand and Malaysia are next with nine points, while Indonesia is last in with one point.
Indonesia will end its World Cup qualification run on June 11 by taking on the United Arab Emirates.
