HÀ NỘI — Việt Nam national U19 team have been invited to compete in the Four Nations Tournament to be held in South Korea on April 18-22.
The team, under the guidance of coach Hoàng Anh Tuấn, will play alongside the hosts South Korea, Morocco and Mexico.
The event will give the Vietnamese team a chance to hone their skills and gain experience to prepare for the final round of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U19 Championship in Indonesia from October 18 and November 4 with the participation of 16 teams.
Before coming to South Korea, Vietnamese players will have an intensive training session in Japan. The whole training trip is sponsored by the Japanese Football Federation.
Two years ago, Vietnamese U19 players shocked the continent after overcoming arch rivals to reach the semi-finals of the AFC event and earned a ticket to compete in the FIFA U20 World Cup 2017. — VNS
