Coach Hoàng Anh Tuấn yesterday named 28 under-21 players to take part in a friendly Nations Cup in Malaysia next month.
Many of the players are from the U-19 team who are called the ‘national treasure’ for the Southeast Asian Games in the future. Some of them are going to compete at the Asian U-19 Championship final later this year.
Tuấn and his players will meet in Hà Nội on May 21 and undergo 10 days of intensive training before he prunes his list to 24 and flies to Malaysia.
Việt Nam will play Thailand while Malaysia will face Singapore. The two winners will meet in the final match while the losers compete for the bronze medal.
The two-day event will be on June 5 and June 6 at the Hang Jebat Stadium in Malacca. – VNS
