Four Vietnamese U23 footballers have been picked for the Team of the Tournament following the 28th SEA Games by the Football Channel Asia (FCA), a dedicated Asian football website.

They are Captain Que Ngoc Hai, winger Vo Huy Toan, forward Nguyen Cong Phuong and Mac Hong Quan. Quan is a substitute in the formation

The site also gave brief descriptions of the role and influence of each player in the formation.

According to the FCA, young defender Hai was the driving force behind many of his team’s incisive counter-attacks as he brought the ball out of the defensive zone with invention and quick pace as well as his great vision and strength in the tackle to build a strong defensive line.

Cong Phuong led the team from the front, literally winning matches for Vietnam to haul them into the semi-final.

Meanwhile, though Vietnam did not progress to the final stage, Vo Huy Toan was simply superb during the tournament as the 22-year-old produced an impressive attack display from his left winger position.

The SHB Da Nang winger became the one of competition’s top goal-scorers with five goals along with Thailand striker Chananan Pombuppha and Myanmar youngster Sithu Aung.-VNA
