“ Fierce” Midfielder ready to “explode”

Thailand and other teams only depend on one or two attacking stars, while Vietnam has entire midfielders ready to “explode”. Most notably, Nguyen Anh Duc – this veteran striker was a big surprise in the AFF Cup 2018 when he scored 4 goals, including a super product in the final leg against Malaysia.
