Vietnam have announced their squad ahead of this week’s AFF Suzuki Cup as they look to recapture the title they last won in 2008.
“It was a really difficult decision as spots are limited. I hope they will try harder for other upcoming tournaments. The door to the national team is always open for talented players,” said Vietnam head coach Nguyen Huu Thang.

Other teams in Group B are Malaysia and Cambodia.
