HCM CITY (VNS) — U21 Hoang Anh Gia Lai (HAGL) have been drawn with U21 South Korea and Myanmar in the U21 International Football Championships to be held at HCM City's Thong Nhat Stadium.
The other group is made up of U21 Viet Nam, Thailand and Singapore.
"This event has attracted strong teams. HAGL are in a tough group with South Korea, so it will be difficult for us to defend our title. However, we will try our best because it will give our players a good driving force for the 2016 season," said HAGL coach Nguyen Quoc Tuan.
The tournament will start on November 20.
HAGL triumphed at the same event held last year after defeating Thailand 3-0 in the final. — VNS
