- The draw result for the SEA Games men's football competition: U-23 Viet Nam face challenge of physical strength16:23 | 07/11/2013
According to result, U-23 Viet Nam was drawn in group A alongside Malaysia, Singapore, Laos, Brunei and Phillipines. Though two opponents U-23 Laos and Brunei aren’t high examined, the present champions Malaysia as well as two remained Singapore and Philipines are so tough that Coach Hoang Van Phuc and his men surely will meet difficulties to face them.
Moreover, 6 teams in a group causes Viet Nam to face with a dense schedule which is disadvantage for Vietnamese players’ physical strength at SEA Games 27. The only advantage is that Coach Hoang Van Phuc and players will play all games at May Pyi Taw and if we get ticket to the semi finals, Viet Nam will stay at Nay Pyi Taw this help us much in not wasting of time for transport.
In group B, among 5 teams Indonesia, Myanmar, Timor Leste, Thailand and Cambodia, Thailand and Indonesia are high examined, however this year both of them must be careful with the host Myanmar. According to draw results U-23 Viet Nam will start with the second game of group A against Brunei DS, after the game between Malaysia and Philipines on Dec 2nd.
