Kuala Lumpur: The AFC Cup Bracket Challenge moves into its second week as the-AFC.com serves up another pair of excellent goals from the Continental competition.
With all the goals coming from the past decade, we showcase some of the standout moments from the AFC Cup and leave it up to you, the fans, to decide which one will reign supreme as the tournament's finest.
Hanoi: As is the case across most of Southeast Asia, football is huge in Vietnam and the country's top-tier V.League 1 continues to improve by the year, with exciting homegrown players and talent from overseas raising the bar.
The V.League began life in a semi-professional capacity back in 1980 and didn't turn professional until after the turn of the millennium but plenty of history has been written ever since.
As the-AFC.com continues its look at the biggest teams from the domestic leagues across Asia, we've selected five teams – based on both success and fanbase – as Vietnam's most popular clubs. Review the candidates and vote for your favourite at the bottom of the article.
Damascus: Defending champions Teshrin will kick off the defence of their title against Hutteen SC as the Syrian Premier League starts on Wednesday with several precautionary measures in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Syrian Football Association announced that fans will be able to attend matches but with stadiums limited to 40 percent of the total capacity to adhere to the guidelines on physical distancing.
Teshrin, who won their third league title last July, will hope to recover from their recent defeat to Al Wahda in the Syrian Super Cup in the Latakia Derby against Hutteen.
