Football is coming to Vietnam. And Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand too. The AFC Asian Cup 2007 is split between the four regional rivals who will be all doing well to climb out of their respective groups, despite home advantage.

This is Vietnam's group: Group B: Vietnam, Japan, Qatar, UAE

Pretty mammoth task to get out of it. But the Pittstop team will be rooting for them all the way. Check out the fixtures here, all Vietnam and other group B games are in My Dinh Stadium in Hanoi.

If, if, if Vietnam were to finish second they'd play the winner of Group A, which could very well be none other then the Sunny Australian Socceroos (with Viduka, Cahill, Kewell et al making the trip). That would be tres grande. Winner of group B plays second place in group A.

Group A
1 Thailand
2 Australia
3 Oman
4 Iraq

Here's the other groups:

Group C
1 Malaysia
2 IR. Iran
3 Uzbekistan
4 China PR

Seems pretty tricky for Malaysia to get out of that one, but this looks like what the pundits will be referring to as the group of CAI CHET!

Group D
1 Indonesia
2 Korea Republic
3 Saudi Arabia
4 Bahrain

Thanks to the Rastall-Man for the tip off
