HÀ NỘI — Đặng Văn Lâm was one of four goalkeepers called up to the national football team to prepare for AFF Cup 2018 by coach Park Hang-seo.
He is a candidate for the number one shirt largely due to his good form in the recently ended V.League 1 season.
The 25-year-old Hải Phòng goalie kept 10 clean sheets for his team and conceded only 25 times in 25 matches, missing a 1-0 defeat to Cần Thơ due to injury.
In terms of clean sheets, the Vietnamese-Russian goalie had one more than Văn Công from Hà Nội and two more than Tuấn Mạnh from Khánh Hòa.
Bùi Tiến Dũng, the main goalkeeper of U23 Việt Nam and Olympic Việt Nam, racked up seven clean sheets.
“This performance is great so far, but it is team effort. I will continue to try my best. I want to give my deep gratitude to my team mates at Hải Phòng for their best support to me,” Lâm said.
He and his teammates met in Hà Nội yesterday to head to South Korea for training in preparation for the AFF Cup 2018. — VNS
