Defending gold medalists Vietnam will play Myanmar in their third Group A match in men’s football at the 31st Southeast Asian (SEA) Games on Friday night.

The match, set to take place at 7:00 pm and be broadcast live on VTV6 channel, plays an important role in deciding which team will secure a berth in the semifinals.

Myanmar are leading the group with six points while Vietnam, who won the gold medal at the 2019 SEA Games, currently rank third with four points.

Experts predict that Vietnam will have a tough game as Myanmar have showcased a surprising performance at the tourney.

On the same day, the Philippines will face Indonesia in the same group, just three hours before the Vietnam - Myanmar game.

The men’s football event at the 31st SEA Games features two groups, with Timor Leste and the aforementioned teams making up Group A while Group B includes Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Cambodia, and Laos.

The 31st SEA Games, which boast 526 categories in 40 sports, are currently taking place in Hanoi and 11 neighboring provinces and cities and will run until May 23.

The biennial event was originally scheduled to be held from November 21 to December 2, 2021 but was postponed after Vietnam saw a flare-up of COVID-19 cases in late April the same year.

Over 7,878 athletes, coaches, and members of the 11 sports delegations have registered for the event.
