Why does U23 Vietnam need Tien Linh at SEA Games 31?

U23 Vietnam did not score a single goal in the Dubai Cup 2022, but Coach Park Hang Seo was not worried because he had a “killer” in his hand.

U23 Vietnam ended the friendly tournament Dubai Cup 2022 without scoring, conceding 2 goals after 3 matches against Iraq, Croatia and Uzbekistan teams.

Job U23 VietnamOnly conceding 2 goals is commendable, even if the defense lacks important pillars promoted to Vietnam such as Viet Anh, Thanh Binh, and Van Xuan.

However, after 3 matches, the attack of U23 Vietnam was empty, leaving many worries. In the matches in the UAE, the students of coach Lee Young Jin all had the opportunity but did not hit the opponent’s net once.

Especially in the last match against Uzbekistan, the U23 Vietnamese strikers had at least 6 clear opportunities, but were powerless to score.

It is worth mentioning that coach Lee Young Jin brought to Dubai this time… 9 strikers, including Xuan Tu, Van Tung, Van Dat, Quoc Viet, Thanh Minh, Nguyen Hoang, Manh Dung, Viet Cuong, Minh Khoa.

Among these, many players are the main kick in the First Division, or are stars in the youth leagues as in the case of Quoc Viet.

Besides the ability to switch from defense to slow counterattack, the fact that U23 Vietnam does not have a real goalscorer is the problem that was most clearly seen in the last Dubai Cup 2022.
