HÀ NỘI — Coach Nguyễn Hữu Thắng has prepared the list of 23 players to be included in the training camp for the upcoming friendly match with Argentina’s U20s next month.

His list includes three goalkeepers, seven defenders, nine midfielders and four strikers.

Despite their poor result in the V.League, Hoàng Anh Gia Lai contributed the highest number of players with 11 from the team making it to the coach’s list.

Coach Thắng said they were all young players who had been evaluated carefully throughout the first half of the season.

The team will gather on May 3 in Hà Nội for a 10-day training schedule before the match.

The match against Argentina is scheduled for May 14 at the Mỹ Đình Stadium.

It will be one of their practice matches before they start preparing for the 2019 Asian Cup qualification late next month and the Southeast Asian Games this August.

The Việt Nam Football Federation (VFF) also announced yesterday that tickets for the match would be priced between VNĐ100,000 and 400,000 (US$4.5-18). Tickets will be sold at kiosks in front of the stadium and by VFF’s agency at 59 Hoàng Cầu Street from May 8. — VNS
