Star defender Trong sustained a foot injury while he was competing in the ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Cup in 2018.

Trong played a key role in Vietnam’s success in the AFC U23 Championship held in January last year in China, in which Vietnam were the runners-up for the first time ever. Following his outstanding performance at the AFC and AFF events, Vietnam’s head coach Park Hang-seo mentioned he wanted to recall Trong to the national squad as he was just dealing with a knock which only required minor surgery – something that could be postponed. However, after careful consideration, coach Park and the VFF decided not to call him in to give him a chance to recover completely.

Young talent Van Toi, captain of Vietnam U19 team, injured his knee ligaments in a match against Jordan in the AFC U19 Championships in October last year. Young midfielder Luc Xuan Hung also suffered a serious knee injury in training with the senior team while preparing for the ongoing Asian Cup.

According to the VFF’s general secretary Le Hoai Anh, the three footballers are young talents with a lot still to give to Vietnamese football, so the VFF is trying to help them recover to their best.

Many years ago, if footballers were injured during international competition, the VFF only supported a small part of their expenditures for treatment. This case shows the VFF is taking a new, more supportive position.
