Vietnam U18s will convene on April 7 to prepare for the international U18 tournament in Hong Kong (China).

The competitors will play in a round robin format to determine the overall champions and other rankings.

The tournament is an important warm-up for Hoang Anh Tuan and his Vietnam U18s side towards the 2019 AFF U18 Championship in August and the 2020 AFC U19 Championship qualifiers later this year.

With the purpose of building and selecting forces for the two aforementioned major goals, Hoang Anh Tuan has called up 28 players for the preliminary list. There is little surprise that those who recently won the int’l U19 tournament in the Vietnamese province of Khanh Hoa take the majority, notably including forward Pham Xuan Tao, who was named both “best player” and “top scorer” of the tournament.

As planned, Vietnam U18s will have ten days for training and assembling lineup before heading to Hong Kong on April 17 with a final 20-man squad.

The first opponent of Hoang Anh Tuan’s side will be Singapore (April 19), then come Myanmar (April 20) and hosts Hong Kong (April 22).
