Through the AFF Cup, I have had a lot of material to prepare very carefully, especially in the last two training sessions.

“At this SEA Games, the teams compete in a round-robin format, so each match will be their final, so we have to try harder in each match. I have two pivo players next to the bridge. Young player Tuan Thanh Thanh Thuan’s player can weigh and mess up, making it harder to catch cards.In the AFF Cup, Minh Tri is not in good form, but in this tournament, if Minh Tri plays well, it will help the team.

All together towards the 31st SEA Games. Talking with the players, I always want them to focus on the field from the very beginning, right from the warm-up. When I focus, everything will be good to me”, coach Minh Giang added.

Now the team has rejuvenated. The children have good Futsal skills, better technique and tactics. The children are more mature. Attending the last World Cup should have more experience and promise to shine at this SEA Games.”
