Dang Van Lam, the first-choice goalkeeper of the national men’s football team of Vietnam, has passed a medical examination to play for Thai football club Muangthong United and is scheduled for a debut press conference on Thursday.

The medical check-up took place at a hospital in Bangkok on Tuesday under the supervision of Dr. Pornthep Maemmanee, an orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine physician, Siam Sport reports.

Lam had his blood drawn for tests, underwent a full-body X-ray scan and examination of all his muscles and bones, according to the Thai news site.

Doctors praised the Vietnamese goalie for his good shape and lack of injuries despite playing in two consecutive tournaments with the Vietnamese national football team in the last two months.

Lam was in the starting line-up of Vietnam in all matches the team played at the 2018 AFF Championship in December and the 2019 Asian Cup in January.

His presence on the field contributed largely to the team’s triumph at the former tournament and historic advancement to the quarter-finals of the latter.

“After thorough examination, we found that the body of this player is very complete,” Dr. Pornthep Maemmanee told Siam Sports.

“He’s ready to make his debut for Muangthong United.”

A press conference has been scheduled for 11:30 am on Thursday, where the 26-year-old goalkeeper will be presented as a Muangthong United player for the first time.

Lam has signed for the Thai football club on a three-year contract with a monthly salary of over US$10,000 apart from other perks such as having his own house and car in Bangkok.

Before his transfer to Muangthong United, the Russia-born goalkeeper had played for Hai Phong FC in Vietnam’s top-flight football league V-league.
