On the afternoon of August 11, Park announced his list of the players summoned for the second camp of Vietnam U22s from August 12 to 15, which is part of their preparation plans towards the gold medal target at the 30th Southeast Asian (SEA) Games.

The Republic of Korea tactician decided to overlook some pillars, such as Nguyen Quang Hai, Doan Van Hau and Nguyen Thanh Chung, allowing them to continue playing for their clubs as the 2019 V.League has entered its most fierce period, with only six matchdays left.

Only 19 players were called up for the second training camp, nine fewer than the first camp on August 5-9. Park continues to test several new faces, including Hue FC’s duo Nguyen Huu Thang (midfielder) and Tran Danh Trung (forward), in addition to two players from the First Division tournament, Do Xuan Thi (Dak Lak FC) and Ngo Hong Phuoc (An Giang FC).

The friendly against Hong Kong’s Kitchee SC is set for August 14 at the PVF Youth Football Training Centre in Hung Yen province.

Kitchee SC is a strong team in Hong Kong (China) and are the champions of the 2017-2018 Hong Kong Premier League. They are considered quality opponents for Park Hang-seo’s players to demonstrate their competence.
