During the team gathering on January 13, 2022, Coach Park appointed personnel to be the captain and vice captain. He also thanked former captain Que Ngoc Hai and former vice-captains Xuan Truong and Duc Huy for their contributions over the past time.
This change with many new goals has made the captain’s armband of the Vietnamese team attract special attention from the public.
In the meeting of the first gathering day of 2022 on the evening of January 13, Mr. Park appointed Hung Dung to take the role of captain of the Vietnamese team. This decision is not surprising. Dung is very worthy to replace Ngoc Hai because he is both experienced and loved by his teammates. At the 30th SEA Games, Hung Dung was also the captain of Vietnam U.22+2 team.
Midfielder Bui Tien Dung and striker Nguyen Cong Phuong were assigned by Mr. Park to be the vice captains of the Vietnam team. Tien Dung has been a stable player for the past 4 years in the team, while Cong Phuong is a comedian in daily life and practice. Phuong connects very well with members from many different clubs.
The Vietnamese team is training for the next match in the WC 2022 qualifiers, against Australia on January 27, 2022.
