Hải is an excellent player. He is a huge support for us and he gives us hope. He is an integral part of the team.

Could you share your journey on becoming a goalkeeper?

I am very grateful to FLC Thanh Hóa Club, which has invested in me since I joined the club. I entered the club when I was just a young player and then a young goalkeeper. I would like to thank the club. I promise to make more efforts in the future. My teammates and I at U23 Việt Nam will do our best in the final match.
