Vietnam Bows Out of the Asian Cup After a 0-1 Loss to Indonesia

Vietnam faced elimination from the Asian Cup group stage for the first time, suffering a 0-1 loss to Indonesia.

Indonesia aggressively pursued an early goal, succeeding with a penalty in the 40th minute. Despite Vietnam's efforts, they couldn't break through Indonesia's defense.

Missing key player Nguyen Dinh Bac due to injury, Vietnam struggled in midfield. Substitutions were made, with mixed impact.

Khuat Van Khang had scoring opportunities, while Le Pham Thanh Long received two yellow cards. Vietnam, reduced to 10 men, couldn't overturn the deficit.

The defeat eliminates Vietnam from the Asian Cup group stage, with a final match against Iraq on Jan. 24th.
