HÀ NỘI — Park Hang-seo has finalised a list of Vietnamese U22 players who will compete with the UAE in a friendly match on Sunday.

His roster includes three goalkeepers, eight defenders, seven midfielders and five strikers.

The team will leave for HCM City on Thursday.

The match which will be held at the Thống Nhất Stadium and is seen as good preparation ahead of the the Southeast Asian Games next month as well as the Asian U23 Championship early next year.

Việt Nam and the UAE have planned for the friendly for months prior to the continental tournament. But a draw last month placed them in Group D together with North Korea and Jordan. However both two sides decided to play the match as scheduled. — VNS
