HÀ NỘI — U20 Việt Nam will have a friendly match with U20 Palestine at Việt Trì Stadium in Phú Thọ Province on September 3, the Việt Nam Football Federation (VFF) has announced.
The event will be a warm-up for the Vietnamese team to prepare for the Qualifiers of the AFC U20 Asian Cup Uzbekistan 2023.
"The Palestinian U20 team are from West Asia. They just competed in the U20 Arab Cup in July and reached the semi-finals. This is a team with good physique, physical strength and expertise. Surely it will be an interesting match. I will use the best squad for the event before leaving for Indonesia on September 12 for the AFC tournament," said coach Đinh Thế Nam of Việt Nam.
The upcoming match has three kinds of tickets VNĐ100,000, VNĐ150,000 and VNĐ200,000.
Việt Trì Stadium is the place that successfully hosted the men's football category of the 31st SEA Games, so the VFF believes that the friendly match between Việt Nam and Palestine will continue to receive the attention of fans.
The friendly match will occur at 7pm and is live on On Football channel, VTVcab On app and Sports TV.
For the Qualifiers of the AFC U20 Asian Cup Uzbekistan 2023, Việt Nam will play against their rivals from Hong Kong (China) in their first match on September 14. They will face Timor Leste on September 16 and host Indonesia two days later.
Gathering 44 teams, the qualifying round is divided into 10 groups whose matches will be hosted by 10 countries.
According to this year's competition format, 10 winners and the five best runners-up from the group stage will advance to the final round hosted by Uzbekistan from March 1 – 18, 2023.
If Uzbekistan are among the five best runner-up teams, a runner-up with the 6th best record will secure a slot for the finals. VNS
