National and U23 team coach Park Hang-seo will lead Vietnam’s U-21 squad to participate in the Toulon Tournament in France from December 23, 2020, to January 7, 2021, at the invitation of the French Football Federation (FFF).

Coach Park Hang-seo (L) will lead Vietnam's U21 team to attend the Toulon Tournament in France.

Many of the world’s football stars, such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Rui Costa and Alan Shearer, have previously attended and shined at the event.

According to the Vietnam Football Federation (VFF), the Vietnamese squad will be made up of 30 players aged under 21, who are set to be the core forces of Vietnam’s U22 team to the 31st Southeast Asian (SEA) Games in 2021.

With the Toulon Tournament taking place later this year, Park will have the chance to select the best players for their France trip as the 2020 National U21 Championship concludes in early December.

As scheduled, Vietnam U21s will convene for a two-week training camp in Hanoi to prepare for the campaign.

The Toulon Tournament is considered a quality warm-up for Vietnam U21s towards the goal of defending the gold medal at the 31st SEA Games, to be hosted in the country.

So far, ten teams have confirmed their participation in the competition, including Japan, Australia, Mexico, Congo, Ivory Coast, Morocco, England, Romania, Vietnam and hosts France.
