Vietnam are close to world top 100 after their competition at the Asian Cup qualification. 

The draw brought Vietnam 38 points for a total of 331 points and helped the team close in on the top 100, a leap of 10 steps forward.

Head coach Park Hang-seo promised to make Vietnam one of the 100 strongest squads in the world when he took charge of the team last October.

With the new ranking, which will be announced on April 12, Vietnam are still No. 1 in the ASEAN, followed by the Philippines and Thailand.

The new position places Vietnam in group three of seeds, together with Iraq, India, Uzbekistan, Qatar and North Korea, at the Asian Cup final next January in the United Arab Emirates. 

The Philippines and Thailand also join Vietnam in the UAE tournament, but they are not seeded.

A draw ceremony will be held on April 5 in Dubai. The Cup will be held in eight stadiums across four cities from January 1 to February 1 with the participation of 24 squads.

This will be the second time that Vietnam take part in the continental tournament. Last time, in 2007, the team entered the quarter-finals.
