Vietnamese football heads towards two major tasks in 2020

Despite Covid-19, the national football team are still heading towards two important goals during the remaining months of 2020 – reaching the third round of the 2022 FIFA World Cup Asian qualifications and defending their regional ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Cup title later this year.

According to the Vietnam Football Federation (VFF), over the past few months, head coach Park Hang-seo and his colleagues have been conducting daily meetings to discuss the team’s improvement.

The national team have set a target to 'conquer' two major goals in the remaining months of 2020.

“With the 2020 AFF Cup, Vietnam still have to work towards protecting their championship title. VFF and coach Park take very seriously the setting of these goals and will work hard to realise them,” VFF President Le Khanh Hai affirmed.

“When signing the contract, the two sides also agreed that Vietnamese football should achieve the best possible results. Park is very enthusiastic in seeking ways not to overload his team, with the full support of the VFF,” Hai added.

The Vietnamese national team are the defending champions of the AFF Cup. They won their second trophy in 2018 after beating Malaysia 3-2 in a two-leg final.

Coach Park Hang-seo is working hard to improve the national team.

Meanwhile, Park Hang-seo’s side currently lead Group G in the second round of the 2022 FIFA World Cup Asian qualification with 11 points following an unbeaten run (three wins, two draws). The “Golden Stars” need to earn 4-6 points from the remaining three matches (against Malaysia, Indonesia and the UAE respectively) to guarantee themselves a ticket to the third and final qualifying round.

It is expected that V.League 1 would be cut short when the nation’s top professional football league resumes in late May or early June in order to serve the team’s targets.
