The next generation of Vietnamese soccer players will wear Cheonan City FC’s uniform and take to the K-League 2 stage in the 2023 season. Cheonan City FC signed striker Vu Minh Hieu (21) and defender Nguyen Canh Anh (23) on loan. The heat of the soccer Korean Wave that was transmitted to Vietnam has become a hotter wind and is now blowing toward Korea.
An and Hieu are from Hoang Ain Gia Lai (HAGL), which is playing a pivotal role in Vietnamese football. Starting from HAGL’s youth team, he went through the national team by age and experienced the professional soccer stage. HAGL is well known for its efforts in nurturing promising players while establishing a systematic youth education system in cooperation with Arsenal early on. HAGL is a place where the national team’s main resources and national team players of all ages are lined up. 메이저놀이터
An and Hieu, recruited by Cheonan City FC, are also promising players who are developing into the next-generation Vietnamese national team by polishing their basic skills. Ahn, who grew up through the national team by age, was recognized for his value when he was selected by coach Park Hang-seo and selected for the Vietnam U-22 national team in 2020. Hieu was selected for the U-23 national team at the age of 20 and raised expectations. He was the youngest player in HAGL history to debut in the first team, and he was evaluated as ‘the second Kong Phuong’ by skipping his national team.
Expectations are high that both players will be able to show a competitive appearance with their 180cm tall physiques and the ability to play multiple positions. Park Nam-yeol, head coach of Cheonan City FC, confirmed the growth potential of the two players through the test and evaluated them as resources that could help the team entering the K-League 2. Despite the language problem, the ability to quickly understand the tactical instructions of the coach and the solid basics to implement them are getting good reviews. Vietnamese duo An and Hieu, who actively wanted to go to Korea, are also said to be passionate about training, raising expectations for their K-League debut.
Cheonan City FC, which has formed a richer squad with the joining of An and Hieu, who are considered the next generation representatives of Vietnamese football, will be held on March 1st at 1:30 pm at Cheonan Sports Complex in Cheonan Stadium to open the 2023 Hana 1Q K League 2 with Busan I-Park. ahead of the game
