Dinh Hung, Van Kha, Anh Tung, Thai Huy, and Thai Hoa have recently been added to the team, which have been a formidable force in Southeast Asia for the last five years.

The team, one of the best in the region's futsal competition, will train at District 8's indoor stadium until August 28, followed by a 10-day training period in Thailand before the final squad with shortlisted members heads for Malaysia for the contest.

The Southeast Asian Futsal Championship will take place from September 19-27 with the participation of 10 countries.

Vietnam, which finished third last year, is in group B, along with Laos, Myanmar, the Philippines and Thailand. Group A consists of Australia, Brunei, Indonesia, the host Malaysia and Timor Leste.-VNA
