Vietnamese footballers lost their fifth match in the Asian Cup 2015 qualifiers, with a 5-0 defeat to the United Arab Emirates in their fifth Group E game, in Abu Dhabi late on November 19.

The UAE dominated throughout the second leg of the game, and the goals came from Mabkhout, who scored a double, and Abbas, Matar and Khalil, who all featured on the score sheet once.

Vietnam, who were thrown out of the running for the Asian Cup 2015 following a 3-0 home defeat against Uzbekistan at the My Dinh National Stadium in Hanoi on November 15, have not yet secured a single point in five matches.

The bottom team will wrap up their most disappointing Asian Cup qualifying campaign with the last match against Hong Kong at home on March 5, 2014.-VNA
