Westfield Matildas Asian Cup opponent fixture history: Vietnam

The Westfield Matildas have been drawn with Japan, Korea Republic and Vietnam in their group at the Asian Cup 2018 in Jordan. 

So, how have Australia fared against Vietnam in their most-recent three clashes?

As you'll see, the Australian women have dominated, scoring a staggering 24 goals and conceding none.

After disposing of Japan in the opening game of qualifiers, the Australians ran riot on the Road to Rio. 

A first half hat-trick to Kyah Simon at Nagai Stadium began the rout. 

It was also the game where a 15-year-old Ellie Carpenter debuted for the Aussies, in turn becoming the first millennial to represent Australia.
