Vietnamese line-up announced for Arsenal friendly

Published: 09/07/2013 04:00



Chief coach Hoang Van Phuc has selected 22 out of 32 training players for the national squad to play a long-awaited friendly against English Premier League FC Arsenal next week.

The line up includes big names such as Minh Phuong, Cong Vinh, Hong Son, Phuoc Tu, Huynh Thanh Quang, Le Tan Tai, and Pham Thanh Luong, who won the 2008 AFF Cup trophy.

Quang Hai, and especially Tai Em, who, together with Minh Phuong, won the AFF Cup in Hanoi five years ago, were not selected, as they were not in good form for the upcoming clash.

Coach Phuc called in Vietnam’s young hopefuls at the upcoming 27th Southeast Asian Games in Myanmar later this year, showing his desire to rejuvenate the squad at the AFF Cup 2014.

Vietnamese players will have warm-up exercises in Hanoi, beginning on July 12 to prepare for the big game with Arsenal five days later.

Following is the 22-member Vietnamese line-up for the friendly game.

 Duong Hong Son, Tran Buu Ngoc

 Phuoc Tu, Duong Thanh Hao, Gia Tu, Manh Hung, Quang Thanh, Quang Hung, Dao Van Phong, Phung Van Nhien

 Minh Phuong, Nguyen Sa, Huy Hung, Tan Tai, Van Quyet, Trong Hoang, Thanh Luong, Manh Dung, Quoc Anh

 Cong Vinh, Anh Duc, Mac Hong Quan.
