U23 Vietnam receives good news ahead of the 2024 AFC U23 Championship quarterfinals

U23 Vietnam’s squad received a significant boost ahead of their U23 Asian Cup 2024 quarter-final match as forward Quoc Viet resumed training with the team. This development comes as the team prepares for their final group stage match against U23 Uzbekistan, which will determine the top positions in Group D.

Quoc Viet, a prominent striker from Hoang Anh Gia Lai (HAGL), had missed the first two matches due to a fever, and his absence was felt as he was not listed in the squad for those games. His return to training signals a potential comeback in the upcoming games, providing Coach Hoang Anh Tuan with additional options upfront.

Coach Tuan may utilize Quoc Viet in the match against U23 Uzbekistan to gauge his readiness for the crucial quarter-final round. Currently, U23 Vietnam is coping with the absence of Nguyen Dinh Bac, who is sidelined due to an injury. In Dinh Bac’s absence, Minh Quang has been leading the attack, though he has yet to make a significant impact.

Quoc Viet’s recovery is timely as U23 Vietnam seeks to maintain its strong performance in the tournament. With two wins from their first two matches, they have already secured a spot in the quarter-finals, but the team’s composition and strategy for the knockout stages are still being fine-tuned.

Historically, Coach Tuan has shown a propensity to rotate his squad, giving players like Quoc Viet ample opportunities to prove their worth. Quoc Viet’s potential inclusion in the game against Uzbekistan could be pivotal as U23 Vietnam aims to top Group D and ideally position themselves for the knockout phase.

As preparations continue, the team’s spirit is high, and the return of a key player like Quoc Viet only adds to the optimism surrounding U23 Vietnam’s campaign at the U23 Asian Cup 2024. The match against U23 Uzbekistan, scheduled for 10:30 PM Vietnam time on April 23, will be crucial in determining their path forward in the tournament.
