To secure their championship in SEA Games 31st at hime, U21 Vietnam will be called up soon in May.

VFF vice president Tran Quoc Tuan shared with Thanh Nien recently. Mr Tuan said the young generation after Quang Hai, Tien Linh, Dinh Trong is not too good and Park needs longer preparation.

“To protect SEA Games championship at home, VFF will and the coaching staff had a summon plan for U21 Vietnam (U22 Vietnam next year). The first call-up will be on FIFA Days in late May.

VFF with Park and his assistant hope to scout, assess and build a strong squad for SEA Games and AFC U23 tournament campaigns,” Thanh Nien quoted VFF vice president.

Danh Trung (13) is one of the players planned for the gold medal campaign

It is reasonable for the U21 team to assemble early  at the end of May, because in 2020, Park Hang-seo will not have to work as much as last year.

The Korean strategist is only in charge of the national team playing in the 2022 World Cup Qualifiers and attending the AFF Cup at the end of the year.

At the age of players who are born in 1999, 2000, there are only a few names who have worked and understood Mr. Park's philosophy such as Danh Trung, Nham Manh Dung, Huu Thang, Y Eli Nie, Le Xuan Tu, Bui Hoang Viet Anh. ... This is also a group of players who will participate in the AFC U23 Championship 2022 next year.
