Vietnam U-23 will play against South Korea club Ulsan Hyundai on Thursday, in preparation for next year’s AFC U-23 Championship.

The match will take place at 19:00 on December 21 at Hang Day Stadium, Hanoi.

According to the schedule, the Korean FA Cup winners will arrive in Vietnam on 20 December. Coach Kim Do-hoon has included several key players in the squad, including defender Kang Min Soo, who competed in 2010 World Cup with Korea national team, and 2017 U-20 World Cup player Lee Sang-heon.
