The American based football statistics site ran a risk analysis using Monte Carlo – a computational algorithm that relies on repeated random sampling to obtain numerical results – of the second qualifying rounds of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers and concluded that the chances of Vietnam entering the final qualifying round is 99.2 percent.
In addition to the five teams - Australia, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Japan and South Korea - that have secured their slots in the Asian qualifying rounds, Vietnam's chances of advancing to third stage of World Cup qualifying rounds are behind Iraq (99.92 percent) and Oman (99.4).

Host Qatar, the top teams of seven groups and the top five runners-up will advance to the final qualifiers, according to the tournament format.
Vietnam are at the top of Group G in the second qualifying round with 17 points, two more than the host UAE. The team will enter the third stage as the leader of group G if they do not lose to the UAE on June 15.
