U23 Vietnam closes 25-man list to visit Thailand prior to AFC U23 championship 2020 finals
Park Hang-seo has announced the 25-player list to visit Thailand for AFC U23 Championship 2020 finals.
Park Hang-seo and VFF has finallized the roster to Thailand yesterday.
Accordingly, Dang Van Toi, Dung Quang Nhom Nguyen Hung Thien Duc are parted from the list, which is not surprising as they don’t impress the coaching staff in the previous days.
The three eliminated defenders cant compete for a slot since U23 Vietnam’s denfensive line possesses quality players including Dinh Trong, Ho Tan Tai, Thanh Thinh, Thanh Trung.
U23 Vietnam is set to visit Thailand on Jan 1 afternoon. Vietnam will have a friendly with Bahrain before officially joinning the tournament.
U23 Vietnam is in the same group with UAE, Jordan and North Korea. Park’s goal is to be qualified for the group stage and win a ticket to the Olympic Tokyo 2020. U23 Vietnam will have an opening match with UAE on Jan 10.
