Japan and Vietnam draw the curtain on their 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign when they go head to head at the Saitama Stadium on Tuesday.

With nothing separating the sides heading into the final minutes of the game, substitute Kaoru Mitoma came up clutch for the visitors as he netted twice to hand them all three points.
Japan have now won each of their last six games in the qualifiers, scoring 10 goals and keeping five clean sheets since a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Saudi Arabia back in October.
Hajime Moriyasu’s men have now won seven and lost two of their nine qualification games to sit top of the standings, one point above second-place Saudi Arabia.
In stark contrast, Vietnam are currently rooted to the bottom of the qualifiers standings after managing just three points from nine games so far.
Park Hang-seo’s side were denied their first consecutive win of the campaign last time out when they fell to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of a resilient Oman side.
Following a drab first half at the My Dinh National Stadium, 28-year-old forward Khalid Khalifa Al Hajri came up trumps for the visitors as he broke the deadlock five minutes after the hour mark to end their three-game winless run.
Prior to that, Vietnam picked up their first points and win of the qualifiers courtesy of a 3-1 victory over China back in February which saw their eight-game losing streak come to an end.
While the Golden Star Warriors will be looking to return to winning ways and end their qualifying campaign on a high, next up is the daunting task of facing a rampant opposing side who have won each of the last four meetings between the teams since 2007.
