HCM CITY (VNS) — Coach Bruno Garcia Formoso has finalised the national team that will compete at the Asian Futsal Championships in HCM City later this month.

As many as 13 of the 16-member squad are from the Thai Son Nam club, who are the national champions. One player each from Metasol, Tan Hiep Hung and Hai Phuong Nam clubs make up the remaining three.

On Saturday, in the last practice match before the Asian competition, Viet Nam beat Lebanon 6-2 in HCM City.

Formoso said he was satisfied with the players' performance, while Poca, Lebanon's coach, said Viet Nam were much better than one year ago when the two teams drew 0-0 in South Korea.

The latest edition of the Asian Futsal Tournament will kick off on April 30 and wrap up on May 10.

The hosts are in Group A with Kuwait, Tajikistan and Iraq.

Viet Nam's participation in the event includes the services of referee Truong Quoc Dung. — VNS
