Three options for the Vietnamese team’s lineup against Oman

24 Mar 2022 | 10:27 | Football

Having lost 8 players before the competition with Oman, the Vietnamese team still has a few squad options to consider in a match that doesn’t have much practical meaning in the third qualifying round of the 2022 World Cup.

The victory over China gives the Vietnamese team confidence before the match against Oman. If he wants to beat the away team, Mr. Park is still in the hands of quality people. On the contrary, he can completely test the squad when the Vietnamese team has many talents called up from U23.

The strongest lineup right now

Injuries and the Covid-19 epidemic caused the Vietnamese team to lose a series of pillars. However, the team still retains a group of experienced players who have trained together for a long time.

In a wooden frame, Bui Tan Truong returned in time after contracting Covid-19. Above him, Que Ngoc Hai and Thanh Chung have both confirmed their talents. Mr. Park just needs to choose one more central defender in the young players and it is likely to be Bui Hoang Viet Anh, who has played very well at the Hanoi club for the past few years.

In the midfield, Tuan Anh and Hung Dung are the top two choices after Hoang Duc’s injury. The right wing provides peace of mind to Ho Tan Tai and the left wing should be protected by Vu Van Thanh.

The upline of the Vietnamese team still has quality names including Cong Phuong, Tien Linh and especially Quang Hai, who are in great demand before going abroad.

The lineup that combines experience and youth

Many people may be startled if they realize that the defense that helped Vietnam win the AFF Cup, only Que Ngoc Hai is left with enough strength to enter the field. This is both a challenge and an opportunity for Coach Park to make certain changes in personnel work. An experienced and classy squad combined with youth is worth the wait for the fans.


Ho Tan Tai, Nguyen Thanh Binh, Bui Hoang Viet Anh and Le Van Xuan have all partly demonstrated their abilities and deserve to be given more opportunities. The two seniors Tran Nguyen Manh and Que Ngoc Hai both shared the responsibility of leading the juniors and became leaders in the Vietnamese defense.

In the central midfield position, Ly Cong Hoang Anh will play the lowest, playing the role of a holding midfielder. Do Hung Dung moves freely with his box-to-box forte. Meanwhile, Nguyen Quang Hai can completely rise to become a public midfielder. He can also become a virtual striker in a 3-4-3 formation when two full-backs Le Van Xuan and Ho Tan Tai rise to become wingers.

Pham Tuan Hai also deserves more opportunities after what he showed in the match against Australia in early February. Nguyen Cong Phuong plays more freely and will be an effective supporter with the goal of drilling through the defense. enemy.

The newest lineup

In a game that no longer makes sense, Mr. Park can even refresh the entire squad with young talents.

In this lineup, in addition to Do Hung Dung and Nguyen Quang Hai, they are almost certain to be the main kickers, the remaining 9 faces are very strange. Some are not even the first choice at club level. Their chances compared to teammates who have shown their ability and gain the trust of the Korean teacher, are quite small. Therefore, who is chosen to be in the starting lineup is also a surprise.

Vu Tuyen Quang, Adriano Schmidt, Dao Van Nam, Do Thanh Thinh, Ly Cong Hoang Anh have all never started for Vietnam. Meanwhile, Ha Duc Chinh has not played for a long time from the beginning and Pham Tuan Hai has shown an impressive performance in the last few matches.

Mr. Park will need some experienced faces like Quang Hai and Hung Dung to lead this squad.

However, the possibility of Vietnam team using a series of young players like this option is very low.
