Kim Han Yoon, head coach of the Vietnamese U23 squad, has named goalkeeper Bui Tien Dung as the team’s captain.
Tien Dung is currently playing for V-League side Hanoi FC and first rose to prominence in 2018 when playing in goal during the team’s run to the final of the AFC U23 Championship under head coach Park Hang Seo.
Midfielder Nguyen Trong Dai, who also played in the final of the 2018 AFC U23 Championship, has been chosen as the team’s vice captain.
Elsewhere, the coaching board of the Vietnam U23s have decided to allow defender Nguyen Van Hanh to return to Haiphong FC due to an injury.
In addition, midfielder Tran Thanh Son is unlikely to face Myanmar U23s because of an injury sustained in a recent fixture against Viettel FC.
Vietnam’s U23s are scheduled to face their rivals from Myanmar in a friendly match which will take place in the northern province of Phu Tho at 8pm on June 7. VOV
