HÀ NỘI — Men’s football teams at the South East Asian (SEA) Games 2019 will consist of 21 U22 players and two overage players, the organisers have announced.
The majority of each squad at the biennial event in the Philippines this November will consist of players born on or after January 1, 1997, (22 years of age and below) and two born before this date.
As a result, Vietnamese footballers like striker Nguyễn Công Phượng, midfielder Lương Xuân Trường, goalkeeper Đặng Văn Lâm who are 24 and 25, or even veteran Nguyễn Anh Đức, 33, could compete.
