HÀ NỘI — The Việt Nam national team will begin a training camp at the Promotion Fund for Vietnamese Football Talent (PVF) Football Training Centre in the northern province of Hưng Yên on August 18 to prepare for the upcoming World Cup 2022 qualifiers.
South Korean head coach Park Hang-seo will call up 30 players for the camp, giving some new faces the opportunity to stake their claim for a place in the squad.
New stars in this V.League 1 season like Phan Văn Long, Hồ Tấn Tài and Nguyễn Hai Long will likely be given a chance to show their worth.
The upcoming World Cup qualifiers in the Asian region will see Việt Nam play away to Malaysia on October 13, pandemic permitting.
The team's final two fixtures in Group G are home to Indonesia on November 12, before finishing with a clash away to the United Arab Emirates on November 17.
Việt Nam currently top the second qualifying round's Group G with 11 points after five matches. — VNS
