Hanoi (VNA) – Coach Park Hang-seo has called 27 players to prepare for the 2022 World Cup qualifier matches between Vietnam and the UAE and Thailand next month.

The squad includes familiar faces who competed in the games with Malaysia and Indonesia earlier this month such as goalkeeper Dang Van Lam (Muangthong United), defender Doan Van Hau (Heerenveen SC), midfielder Nguyen Quang Hai (Hanoi FC) and striker Nguyen Cong Phuong (Sint Truidense).

This time, the Republic of Korean coach has selected two newcomers: defender Le Van Dai (Thanh Hoa) and forward Ngan Van Dai (Hanoi FC).

Ha Minh Tuan (Quang Nam) and Ngo Hoang Thinh (HCM City), who both failed to make the last squad because of injuries, are back in the list.

The players will start training on October 29 in Hanoi.

The list will be shortened to 23 ahead of the match against the UAE on November 14.

Vietnam will host Thailand on home turf on November 19./.
