Having never met Saudi Arabia as the head coach of Vietnam, it will be a big challenge for the Korean leader in finding out the opponent’s limitations.
Vietnam Tel will open the 3rd Qualifier of the 2022 World Cup with a turbulent trip to the field of rival Saudi Arabia. In the past, Vietnamese football had little chance to confront this mighty opponent from West Asia.
Exactly two decades ago, the Vietnamese team competed against Saudi Arabia in the first two matches of the 2002 World Cup in Asia.

The first match took place on February 13, 2001, the Vietnamese team with players like Phi Hung, Quoc Trung, Van Sy, Hong Son… accepted a 0-5 defeat in the first leg. The second leg took place on February 20, 2001, Vietnam Tel continued to receive a 0-4 defeat against the opponent.
Therefore, Coach Park Hang Seo is also facing a lot of difficulties in capturing information and studying the strengths and weaknesses of this team.
It is known that in the past time, the Korean military leader has asked his assistants to collect videos of the opponent, and the players also have to learn about Saudi Arabia themselves.
In addition to self-study, he also often has internal meetings. Here, members of the Vietnamese team will present their own views and perspectives on the strengths and weaknesses of the opponent.
According to the general assessment of the Vietnam team, the opponent Saudi Arabia often plays with a 4-2-3-1 diagram. Although in West Asia, this team has a different style of play than other teams in the same region.
They possess a fast kick, a low-touch bounce with an extremely good personal technical background. However, the Korean strategist still sees the weakness that the West Asian opponent has.
That weakness lies in the space between the full-back and center-back positions. The two full-backs of Saudi Arabia often tend to rise, so they reveal a big gap. This creates hope for Vietnam Tel if they know how to take advantage of the speed and agility of the wingers to cut into this position.
Vietnam Tel has many players with impressive attack speed. However, against an opponent above their range, they will have to make the most of the rare opportunities they have. In addition, the red shirt army also needs to know how to distribute physical strength in the context of having to compete in hot weather in Saudi Arabia.

Like Vietnam, the young U22 players are currently in training at the VFF Youth Football Center, aiming for the 2022 Asian U23 qualifier that will take place…
The Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) and coach Park Hang Seo have recently selected the “green army” that they like so that the Vietnamese team has the best momentum before the 3rd Qualifier of the World Cup 2022.
The players who cannot compete for the position on the team are the names that are at high risk of having to part with the Vietnamese team when the team leaves for Saudi Arabia to play the match.
