Although U22 Vietnam cannot bring the best squad, this will also be an opportunity for other players to develop their capabilities. We will concentrate on solving each match one by one and thereby win. Now the team is ready to head to the first match. ”
Unfold the “unknown” AFF U22 Phillippines
U22 opponent of Vietnam this afternoon, U22 Philippines is not well prepared for the AFF U22 tournament. According to assistant Anto Gonzales, the team has only two weeks to focus on preparing for the tournament. In terms of force, most of the U22 Philippines players take part in the mature tournament from the country’s universities and only a few are playing for a few teams in the Philippine league.
However, in the U22 Philippines team, there is still a very prominent face. It was striker Troy Limbo. The 21-year-old has signed a professional contract and plays for Sunderland Ryhope club ranked 9th in the British professional league system.
However, overall, U22 Philippines is still much underestimated U22 Vietnam and the opportunity for U22 Vietnam to have 3 points on the AFF U22 tournament.
