Coach Park Hang-seo wants U23 Vietnam to constantly gather
As Coach Park Hang-seo’s requirement, U23 Vietnam (having key players from U22 Vietnam ahead of SEA Games 2019) will have an extreme careful set-up before heading to Philippines.
Specifically, U23 Vietnam will gear up for 5 constant months, each gathering camp lasts 7-10 days and would take longer in the period of 5 weeks before SEA Games 2019 kicks off.
The latest one happens this June at the same time as King’s Cup 2019 opening. The national team has only 3 days to make use of for practicing before traveling to Thailand for playing from June 5 to 8.
Meanwhile, U23 Vietnam has 5 days to get ready for a home game in My Dinh Stadium against U23 Myanmar.
After that, U23 Vietnam starts another stage of the campaign from June to the end of November which will be a 7-10 day section for each month.
The preliminary squad list is expected to have 25 men who mostly are the players from the formation ahead of U23 AFC Championship Qualifiers held 2 months ago. The list also will be added by other excellent-form players.
The national team is scheduled to have a union frequency as U23 team’s from September to November.
Back to the time of 2019 Asian Cup, Coach Park side had only 5 days to recharge their batteries after winning the AFF Cup 2018 title.
Such a tight time was not long enough for the players to gain their physical force also to have the best preparation for the game.
