Rating about U23 Vietnam Led by coach Gong Oh-kyun, coach Hwang Sun-hong said: “Vietnam has a new coach, new tactics. I don’t have much information about U23 Vietnam. We will have to be careful with the new coach. Of course, Korea U23 will analyze the opponent carefully before confronting them directly. We will focus.
We have watched many matches of Southeast Asia. They have the potential and the chance to get good results in this tournament. We have to be careful with them.”
U23 Korea has a short reunion time, so there are not many friendly matches. However, coach Hwang is still very confident: “They understand my tactics and are in good shape. I tell the players to give their best.”
Korea U23 is the defending champion AFC U23 Championship. Coach Hwang also has a strong squad with young stars such as Lee Kang-in, Jeong Sang-bin, Oh Se-hun, Cho Young-wook.
However, coach Hwang Sun-hong insisted: “I don’t want to talk about a player. I think about the team, the connection, a lot of new players so it will take time to connect with each other.”
On the side of Malaysia U23, coach Brad Maloney said: “We have just played the SEA Games, played 6 matches and are now in Uzbekistan. I think the whole team is well prepared for the 2022 AFC U23 Championship. We are ready to face three strong opponents, including two Southeast Asian teams, Vietnam and Thailand.”

U23 Malaysia will play the opening match against U23 Korea at 6 pm (local time), ie 8 pm (Vietnam time) at Lokomotiv Stadium.
“South Korea U23 is very strong, world class. We respect them. I believe Korea is the title candidate, there is no doubt that they will go through,” coach Brad Maloney said.
“The remaining three teams, Vietnam, Thailand and Malaysia, are all strong. This will be tough competition. Vietnam no longer has three overage players like the SEA Games, but they will find a way to adapt. I still believe that U23 Vietnam is very strong and competitive. U23 Malaysia is happy to be here and will try to go as far as possible.”
