HA NOI (VNS) — Midfielder Dao Duy Khanh will miss his chance to play at this month's ASEAN Football Championship, the Suzuki Cup, because of injury.
Khanh suffered a torn knee ligament in a friendly match between Viet Nam and Bahrain last October 29. Doctors said he needed at least one year to recover.
Khanh is a member of the V-League team Ha Noi T&T and a key player of the national U23 team to which he has been called following his outstanding performance at the recent Asian Games in South Korea.
Khanh will move to Ha Noi on Wednesday for another test before undergoing surgery. — VNS
