HÀ NỘI — Park Hang-seo has selected 23 players for the 2020 Asian Football Confederation U23 Championship qualification’s Group K.

The South Korean coach picked four strikers, seven midfielders, nine defenders and three goalkeepers.

Among them, forward Hà Đức Chinh of SHB Đà Nẵng is the most internationally experienced while his younger teammate Trần Danh Trung, 19, from Huế FC is the newest one. He just completed at the ASEAN U22 Championship earlier this month and scored three goals for Việt Nam who finished third.

Midfielder Nguyễn Quang Hải of Hà Nội FC is the team’s captain.

Defender Trần Đình Trọng is the only player in the team lacking fitness, but his leg injury has been recovering well.

Group K includes Brunei, Indonesia, Thailand and Việt Nam. The matches will be played on March 22, 24 and 26 at Mỹ Đình National Stadium. — VNS
