The drawing results were announced by the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) on May 11.

The 24 participating teams in the Asian Cup have been divided into six groups competing in a round-robin format. The first- and second-place teams of each group, together with the four best-performing third-placed teams will enter the round of 16.

Falling into a group with strong teams like Japan and Iraq forces Vietnam to consider the possibility of advancing to the next round as one of the best-performing third-placed teams.

The tournament is set to be held in Qatar from January 12 to February 10, 2024.
