NDO – Coach Park Hang-seo has prepared various tactical options for the Vietnam U23 team for their key match against Myanmar in the final Group I match of the U23 Asian Cup Qualifiers later today.



On November 1, Vietnam had the final practice session at Sport City Stadium to complete their preparation for the match against Myanmar U23 in the final Group I match of the 2022 U23 Asian Cup Qualifiers.


Park continued to adjust the shortcomings in the team's playstyle revealed in the opening match against Chinese Taipei.


The Korean tactician has developed different plans for the decisive match at the top of the table against Myanmar. Vietnam just need to gain one point to win a direct ticket to the final tournament in Uzbekistan next year.


Vietnam are also practicing penalty kicks in case the match against Myanmar ends in a draw, as both teams are equal in terms of all points and sub-coefficients in Group I.


If Vietnam rank second in the group, they will also progress, but they need to be at the top to have the upper hand in the 2022 U23 Asian Cup Finals.


The young players are having great determination with the spirit of 'don't let the fans down.'


After an unimpressive performance in the 1-0 win over Chinese Taipei, Vietnam need a convincing victory to relieve pressure as well as help young players gain more confidence in the journey ahead.


The "final" match of Group I between U23 Vietnam and U23 Myanmar will take place at Dolen Omurzakov Stadium (Kyrgyzstan) at 5pm on November 2 (Vietnam time).
