4:20 PM: Hello everyone and welcome to Khel Now’s LIVE COVERAGE of Vietnam vs India in the AFC U-20 Women's Asian Cup qualifiers. The kick-off is just an hour away! I’m your host Aishwarya Chakraborty, and I’ll be keeping you company through what promises a fascinating evening of football. Please wait for 30 Seconds for the Live blog to load.

Vietnam vs India: Build-up

In a virtual final for a ticket to the next round, the Indian Women’s U-20 Team will take on Vietnam in their last match of Group F of the 2024 AFC U-20 Women’s Asian Cup Qualifiers Round 1 at the Viet Tri Stadium in Viet Tri City, Vietnam on Saturday, March 11, 2023. Kick-off is slated for 4:30 pm IST.

Both India and Vietnam have six points with two wins from their first two games against Indonesia and Singapore. The hosts are top of the table due to a superior goal difference of +14 (3-0 vs Indonesia and 11-0 vs Singapore). India have a goal difference of +13 (7-0 vs Singapore and 6-0 vs Indonesia). It gives Vietnam an advantage, as a draw on Saturday will be enough for them to qualify as group winners, while only a win will do for India.

“We were confident of a win going into this match, and the team delivered very well,” said midfielder Kajol Dsouza after the victory over Indonesia on Thursday, in which India scored three goals in each half. Six different scorers have found the net in the qualifiers so far, which would please head coach Maymol Rocky.

However, the margin of the Indian victories could’ve been higher if the finishing was better, but now Rocky is only aiming for a win in the all-important clash against Vietnam, who flexed their muscles in the 11-0 thrashing of Singapore on Thursday.
