At the 2022 AFC Champions League, HAGL fell into a difficult group when they had to face Jeonbuk (the defending champion of Korea), Yokohama F. Marinos (the runner-up of Japan) and Sydney FC (the runner-up of Australia). However, the representative of Vietnam left many impressions.

I Very proud of our achievements.”coach Kiatisuk said after HAGL beat Sydney FC 1-0 in the last match.

Remember after the first match, coach Kiatisuk revealed that HAGL wanted to win points, but Duc had a very special request. He wished that when stepping out onto the continental playing field, HAGL players must first compete comfortably and perform the beautiful gameplay that HAGL pursues for the audience to enjoy.
And after the mountain team completed the tournament, Duc once again emphasized his football philosophy. He said above Youth:
“What we do ourselves has a plan, a long-term oriented strategy. And although there are different jobs, done at different times, they all have the same purpose: all even for Vietnamese football I’ve always been like that. I like to do what no one else has done and I don’t want to be slower than anyone. My point of view is from business to football, I don’t want to. step on someone”.

With what has been done, teachers and coaches Kiatisuk can completely leave the tournament with their heads held high. They have proven that Vietnamese teams with strong investment and the right strategy have the potential to compete in the continental arena.
In addition, the 5 points HAGL won also helped Vietnamese football advance on the continental rankings, rising to 12th place, above both China and Australia. This achievement will be the basis for AFC to allocate seats to the Asian Cup (AFC Champions League and AFC Cup) in the following seasons.
