Ho Tan Tai suspended, U23 Vietnam is at a disavantage
U23 Vietnam will not have the service of defender Ho Tan Tai in the opening match against U23 UAE.
Being in the comfortable group, U23 Vietnam should not be optimistic since Park will not have the service of Ho Tan Tai.
In the qualifier on My Dinh stadium in March 2019, Ho Tan Tai was drawn 2 yellow cards which causes him a suspension in AFC U23 Championship 2020.
It is a big loss for Vietnam in the last SEA Games since Tan Tai is a parfect replacement for Trong hoang in the right wing position. Tan Tai can even play stably in the left wing.
The UAE is the strongest team in the three opponents in the group stage. So lacking Tan Tai at this time is a disadvantage for U23 Vietnam. Vietnam will play the opening match on January 10, then on January 13 and 16, they meet Jordan and North Korea respectively.
