Bui Hoang Viet Anh is the captain of U23 Vietnam
UAECoach Gong Oh-kyun appoints Bui Hoang Viet Anh – a key defender who has just won the 31st SEA Games – as captain to attend the U23 Asian Finals in Uzbekistan.
According to a source of VnExpress, this decision was made by the new coach Gong today, May 26. The two vice captains will be goalkeeper Nguyen Van Toan and midfielder Ly Cong Hoang Anh.
Viet Anh is 1m89 tall, with a knack for kicking a central defender. He started to be noticed when he played for the Vietnam U18 team in 2017. Two years later, he played for Ha Tinh in the First Division on loan from Hanoi, and was an important factor in helping the team move up to the V-League.
Thanks to that impressive performance, Viet Anh was called by Hanoi to compete in the V-League 2020, in the context of Tran Dinh Trong and Do Duy Manh being injured. Midfielder from Thai Binh province is a member of U23 participating in the U23 Asian final round 2020 and was called up to participate in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
Currently, Viet Anh is the most experienced player in Vietnam’s U23 squad, playing an important role in the journey U23 won the SEA Games 31.
Coach Gong Oh-kyun brought 25 players to Dubai for training from May 25. After three days of training, the team will have a friendly match with the host U23 UAE before going to Uzbekistan to attend the U23 Asian final round.
In order to help the players get used to the official game time frame, Coach Gong started the training sessions at 19:00 local time (22h Hanoi time). He also divided the training session into two parts, to suit the fitness of two different groups of players (the group that attended the 31st SEA Games and the group that trained with him before).
To create a comfortable atmosphere on the training ground, the Korean coach also encourages players to bring bluetooth speakers to play exciting music during the warm-up.
At this time, the weather in the UAE is quite pleasant.
Vietnam is in Group C, meeting Thailand (June 2), South Korea (June 5) and Malaysia (June 8). This is the first tournament that Coach Gong has held, replacing his predecessor Park Hang-seo.
Vietnam won the 2018 Asian U23 runner-up with Coach Park, but was eliminated in the group stage two years later.
