OptimEye X4 is a modern sensor worn under their shirts by players. It will track all the main factors like distance, acceleration, work rate, orientation, heart rate, impact analysis, and tackle identification during training and tests. The information will then be sent to the coach to help him provide optimal training for each individual.

The technology is widely used in football clubs in Germany and the U.K.

Vietnam used it once earlier in 2017 for the U20 World Cup.
