Vietnam made sure of their win in Group C with wins over Guam and Yemen while their draw against Singapore in their final group game had no effect on the final standings in the group.
Thailand were perfect in Group H from three matches and did not even concede a single goal against Malaysia, Philippines and Bangladesh, as Australia also scored two wins from two matches played in Group I (Tajikistan and Laos) following the withdrawal of North Korea.
Indonesia also progressed to the final rounds competition with two wins from two matches in Group K over Turkmenistan and Chinese Taipei while Malaysia made the cut to the next round as the best fourth-ranked runners-up in the qualifying competition.
