HÀ NỘI Park Hang-seo has called up 27 players to prepare for the 2022 World Cup qualifier match between Việt Nam and the UAE and Thailand next month.
The squad includes familiar faces who competed in the Malaysia and Indonesia games earlier this month such as goalkeeper Đặng Văn Lâm (Muangthong United), defender Đoàn Văn Hậu (Heerenveen SC), midfielder Nguyễn Quang Hải (Hà Nội FC) and striker Nguyễn Công Phượng (Sint Truidense).
This time, the South Korean coach has selected two newcomers: defender Lê Văn Đại (Thanh Hoá) and forward Ngân Văn Đại (Hà Nội FC).
Hà Minh Tuấn (Quảng Nam) and Ngô Hoàng Thịnh (HCM City), who both failed to make the last squad because of injuries, are back in the list.
The players will start training on October 29 in Hà Nội.
The list will be shortened to 23 ahead of the match against the UAE on November 14.
Việt Nam will host Thailand on home turf on November 19. VNS
