8 Hanoians in Vietnam’s national football squad shortlist

Many familiar faces are among 30 players called up to try out for the national squad that will compete at the upcoming Asian Football Federation (AFF) Championship 2018.

These are part of the squad that helped Vietnam finish in in August, as well as several experienced players.

Eight players from the capital city’s football team, Hanoi FC, are among the shortlisted 30. These include famous names like Quang Hai, Van Quyet and Van Hau. Five players from Hoang Anh Gia Lai FC, including Cong Phuong and Xuan Truong, have also been called up.

These are all main players in Vietnam’s men’s national football team that has achieved remarkable success in recent tournaments.

Talking about the AFF Championship, Park Hang-seo told VnExpress: “AFF Cup will be a tough challenge. Although we have succeeded in the AFC U23 Championship and Asiad this year, it will be very different because this is the national team level.”

The championship will be played from November 8 to December 15, with the participation of 10 teams from Southeast Asia.

Vietnam, in Group A with Malaysia, Myanmar, Cambodia and Laos, will play its first match against Laos on November 8.
