Most of them played in the recent International U19 Football Tournament in Pleiku City in the Central Highlands province of Gia Lai, which Vietnam won against Japanese club side Mito Holyhock.


The coach chose only three players of national U19 defending champions, Dong Thap, namely goalie Nguyen Nhat Truong, defender Nguyen Hoang Duy and midfielder Tran Cong Minh.

The runners-up of the National U19 Championship, Hanoi also contributed six players including three defenders, two midfielders and one striker.

Notably, overseas Vietnamese midfielder Tony Le Tuan Anh from the Czech Republic was also in Tuan’s list. He joined the Bohemians Praha academy in 2011 and is in the Bohemians U19 squad.

Last year, Anh had a trial with the national U20 team in preparation for the FIFA U20 World Cup but didn’t make the final squad.

The Suwon JS Cup 2018 will be held on April 18-24 with the participation of the hosts South Korea, Mexico, Morocco and Vietnam. They will compete in a round robin format.

The event will be a warm-up for the Vietnamese side to prepare for the finals of the AFC U19 Championship in Indonesia between October 18 and November 4.
