However, in the next friendly match, Guus Hiddink will not face Park as the South Korean strategist is busy to guide Vietnam national team in the framework of World Cup 2022 ASIA zonal qualifiers. Thereby, Park’s assistant will in charge of guiding U22 Vietnam.

Guus Huddink is an experienced coach in the world. He became famous after leading South Korea to reach World Cup 2002 semifinals then helping Australia advance to the knockout stage of World Cup 2006 after being defeated by Italia.

In the SEA Games 30 draw , U22 Vietnam is pooled in group 3 with U22 Myanmar. It is likely that the ‘Golden Dragon’ will be arranged to fall in to the hard-fought group with the defending champion Thailand as the Azkals wants to avoid suc strong opponents like Vietnam. Park and his men still set their goal to win the SEA Games though.
