Leading Vietnam U23 at the AFC U23 Championship will be the new coach Gon Oh-kyun. According to the previous plan of the Federation Vietnamese football (VFF), Coach Park Hang-seo will stop leading Vietnam U23 to focus on the Vietnamese team. The most important goal this year for the Vietnamese team is the 2022 AFF Cup. It is known that on June 1, the Vietnamese team will have a friendly match with Afghanistan in Ho Chi Minh City. Talking to Tien Phong, VFF President Le Hoai Anh said that Afghanistan is looking forward to the 2023 Asian Cup. Preparing for this match, the Vietnamese team will gather in Hanoi on May 25.
“On May 28, the Vietnamese team will move to Ho Chi Minh City to prepare for a friendly match with Afghanistan. The team will then disband, rest, and only regroup in the preparation stage for the 2022 AFF Cup. We are currently planning for the Vietnamese team to have more friendly matches before the 2022 AFF Cup, possibly in November” – TTK Le Hoai Anh said.
The contract between Mr. Park and VFF has just been extended for another year according to the previous terms between the two parties. It is not clear whether the Korean leader will continue to extend the new contract or not.
