12 hours before kick-off, Coach Park Hang-seo and the coaching staff of the Vietnamese team finalized the list of 23 players for the Vietnam vs. UAE squad.
Accordingly, 6 players were not present in the Vietnam squad for the match against the UAE, including defenders Le Van Xuan, Bui Hoang Viet Anh, Ho Tan Tai, midfielder Ly Cong Hoang Anh along with 2 players being treated for injuries. injured are midfielders Nguyen Tuan Anh and Nguyen Hai Long.
The absence of midfielder Tuan Anh leaves fans with regret. The Thai Binh-born player only played for about 30 minutes in the match against Indonesia before leaving the field due to an injury situation due to a foul by his team.
However, in the hands of Coach Park Hang-seo, there are still many quality cards that can replace this midfielder. It can be mentioned that Xuan Truong, Hoang Duc or even Quang Hai can also play well in the central midfield position.
With a 2-point advantage over the opponent, Vietnam Tel only needs a draw to win the right to advance to the third qualifying round of the 2022 World Cup as the first place in Group G.
However, speaking before the match, the Korean strategist said he did not want the whole team to think about holding the UAE to continue.
In the match against the UAE, Coach Park Hang-seo will not have the right to direct in the technical area due to the penalty card. In this regard, the Korean military leader shared: “I still held the role of head coach until before the match.
We already have the scenarios prepared for the match. Of course there will be variables on the pitch and depending on the situation my assistant will come up with a solution. My assistant is qualified to do this match.”
