Meanwhile, Chung kept veterans such as Huynh Nhu, Pham Hai Yen and Chuong Thi Kieu on his list.

According to Chung, he called many young players with the aim of preparing players for the future, including the 31st Southeast Asian Games which will be held in Vietnam in 2021.

The team will begin their one-week training session in the northern province of Quang Ninh on January 1 and then they will return to Hanoi to continue to practice.

Vietnam have been drawn in Group A, together with the Republic of Korea, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and Myanmar, in the event which will be held in the RoK next February. Meanwhile, Group B consists of Australia, China, Thailand and Chinese Taipei.

The teams will play in a round robin format (February 3-9) to decide the top two teams from each group for the play-off tournament. The two best teams of the play-off tournament, to be played on a home and away basis on March 6 to 11, will join hosts Japan as the three representatives of Asia at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
