Duc is notable for being the only Vietnamese football player named among the list.

According to ESPN, whilst the country may have come up short in their quest to defend their AFF Cup title previously won back in 2018, it was not due to a lack of effort from midfield general Nguyen Hoang Duc.

“With all eyes on talismanic playmaker Nguyen Quang Hai, it was instead Hoang Duc who ran the show mostly for the Vietnamese with his tidy distribution and non-stop running, as he narrowly pips Singapore's Shahdan Sulaiman to the second central midfield berth”, says article.

Here is the full list of ESPN’s Team of the Tournament from the AFF Suzuki Cup 2020:

Goalkeeper: Hassan Sunny (Singapore)

Right Back: Narubadin Weerawatnodom (Thailand)
