Van Duc and HAGL own impressive performance in V-League 2020
SLNA is the only club in V-League not to concede any goals after 3 rounds.
SLNA, with a lot of defensive pillars, became the strongest defensive team in V-League 2019. Yet they sold all the pillar in season 2020.
Goalkeeper Tran Nguyen Manh left his hometown team to join Viettel. Defender Dinh Hoang, who played 25/26 matches last season, also transferred to SHB Da Nang.
Best foreign defender V.League 2019 Damir Memovic switches to HAGL. Player Pham Xuan Manh was injured and could not return to the field. Coach Ngo Quang Truong was forced to build a new defense in the 2020 season.
In the wooden frame, former U23 goalkeeper Nguyen Van Hoang is trusted to give the main catch. With a height of 1.86 meters, Van Hoang left an impressive performance with 3 clean sheets.
Rookie Gustavo Santos has teamed up with captain Hoang Van Khanh to create a solid wall to shield Van Hoang's goal. When Van Khanh was absent in the third round, Thai Ba Sang (21 years old) also successfully completed the assigned task when playing in the center of the defense.
In the fourth round of V.League 2020, SLNA will travel to Thanh Hoa - the team that has just appointed coach Nguyen Thanh Cong to replace Mr. Fabio Lopez.
