The football friendly between Vietnam U22s and their Chinese peers will be broadcast live on Vietnamese channels VTC1 and Bong Da TV HD at 5:00 pm on Sunday.

The match will take place at Huangshi Olympic Sports Center in Wuhan, China.

This game is meant to prepare Vietnam U22s for the 2019 Southeast Asian Games, hosted by the Philippines from November 30 to December 11, and China U22s for the 2020 AFC U-23 Championship in Thailand.

South Korean head coach Park Hang Seo has been ‘tasked’ with winning the gold medal of the men’s football event at the Southeast Asian Games in the Philippines.

The Korean man has delivered a great performance since he was signed by the Vietnam Football Federation in 2017.

He helped the Vietnamese national team win the Southeast Asian trophy for the second time in a decade in 2018 and reach the 2019 AFC Asian Cup quarterfinals, while leading the U23 national squad to finish second at the 2018 AFC U23 Championship in China and to claim the fourth place in men’s football at the 2018 Asian Games in Indonesia.  

The friendly game will be an interesting clash for Park as he will challenge China U22s’ Dutch coach Guus Hiddink along the pitch.

Park was an assistant to Hiddink in 2002, when they headed South Korea to the semifinals of the FIFA World Cup.

He coached Vietnam to win a point in a hard-fought 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying draw against hosts Thailand on Thursday. Both sides scored no goal in the tense Group G game at Thammasat Stadium.
