Hà Nội — Việt Nam’s football team has been placed in the weakest pot for the group draw for the Southeast Asian (SEA) Games later this year in the Philippines.
According to the organisers, Việt Nam are in pot four with Laos, Cambodia, Brunei and East Timor.
Việt Nam’s position is because of their poor performance at the previous SEA Games in 2017, when they failed to pass the group stage.
The Philippines and defending champions Thailand are in pot one, as they are considered the best sides.
Indonesia and the 2017 runners-up Malaysia are in pot two. Myanmar and Singapore are in pot three.
A draw for the group stage has not been confirmed.
Coach Park Hang-seo and his players have been asked to win the first gold medal for the country from the upcoming games. — VNS
