Explain about Bui Tien Dung, head coach Park Hang-seo said: “I chose Tien Dung for the goalkeeper position instead of Van Toan because these recently match, he had a good performance and show his desire in the training session. In addition, Tien Dung has the experience when playing in the international tournaments, he used to play at the U20 World Cup 2017, U23 AFC Championship 2018, and Asian Games 2019”.

About the case of Bui Hoang Viet Anh (who is a center-back but is set to play as a midfielder instead of Ho Tan Tai who was faced two yellow cards in the qualifying round), head coach Park Hang-seo argued that: “His strong point is center-back and has just practice to play as a defender for a short-term, however, today he played well and I satisfied”.
