The Vietnamese team has never been so fragile

The Vietnamese team is practicing at the Vietnamese youth football training center to prepare for two matches against Oman and Japan in the third qualifying round of the 2022 World Cup. In this meeting, coach Park Hang-seo summoned 28 players, with both old and new faces. However, “people who count are not equal to heaven” before the army festival of a series of players infected with Covid-19 caused the Korean leader to change up to 4 positions.

In turn, To Van Vu, Bui Tan Truong, Nguyen Van Vi and Tran Dinh Trong were replaced by Chau Ngoc Quang, Nguyen Van Hoang, Do Thanh Thinh, and Nguyen Thanh Binh. On the first day, Bui Tien Dung and Phan Van Duc had to say goodbye to the Vietnamese team because of injury. Besides, Mr. Park also has to face with 3 players infected with Covid-19: Van Hoang, Hong Duy, Dao Van Nam (the player has just been added).

Entering the third training session, having just received the good news that striker Nguyen Tien Linh could return to practice, there was another case of defender Que Ngoc Hai with hip muscle pain.

To summarize, in the current goalkeeper position in the hands of Mr. Park, there are Nguyen Manh, Tuan Manh and Vu Tuyen Quang. The captain can be somewhat reassured because Nguyen Manh is in a stable form. He also caught some matches at the AFF Cup and has just played well with Viettel club in the V.League.

The defenders will cause the head coach of Vietnam to have more headaches when he is absent for the first time since he took charge of a series of pillars. All 3 familiar defenders Tien Dung, Duy Manh, Dinh Trong are absent, while Que Ngoc Hai also leaves open the possibility of playing at 100%. Thus, Mr. Park only had Thanh Chung left and was forced to give young players a try including Nguyen Thanh Binh, Bui Hoang Viet Anh and rookie Adriano Schmidt.

The two sides of the Vietnamese team still have Tan Tai, a player in very good form, and two options on the left wing, Vu Van Thanh and Le Van Xuan.

In the midfield position, Mr. Park still has faces that can be assured such as Quang Hai, Hoang Duc, Hung Dung… The highest is still Tuan Hai, Tien Linh, Van Toan, Cong Phuong.

This afternoon on March 18, the Vietnamese team will have an internal match against Vietnam U23. This is the most appropriate time for Coach Park Hang-seo and his associates to test the squad towards the nearest match with Oman.

Mr. Park was very successful in testing Tuan Hai, a striker with abundant physical strength and flexible running ability brought a new breeze in attack. Similarly, if you are brave, you may add many new vitality factors.

With the team “red shirt yellow star” having run out of opportunities to continue in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers, the burden is not much, the young players will be more comfortable playing. This does not mean that the Vietnamese team will give up the remaining 2 matches. True to the goal of “breathing, you can still remove”, this is an opportunity for players who have little chance to prove themselves. Build trust and find a place to compete in important tournaments ahead such as SEA Games 31, AFF Cup 2022.
