The final team will see ten players cut from the provisional squad, with 20 players to advance to the Football Championship. The shortlist includes 12 players who have trained under Guillume at the Hoang Anh Gia Lai – Arsenal JMG Football Academy for the last five years.
The Frenchman confirmed he has chosen players who are most suitable for the tournament.
The squad will fly to Indonesia on September 7 to compete in the championships that will include 11 teams from around the region.
