In Group D of 2020 AFC U23 Championship, UAE will face defending runner-up Vietnam U23 in the first match.

"Vietnam U23, led by coach Park Hang Seo, is a strong team. Vietnamese players have great prospects and motivation. The match against Vietnam will be difficult, and this is obviously the biggest obstacle of the UAE to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics", assessed Al Carlesage of the UAE.

Vietnam U23 is currently the runner-up of the tournament. At the 2018 AFC U23 Championship finals, Park Hang-seo's team reached the final and lost to Uzbekistan U23 with a score of 1-2.

In the tournament that year, UAE U23 did not participate. At this tournament, UAE U23 has a strong determination to win tickets to the 2020 Olympic Games.

According to UAE media, Coach Park Hang-seo is a big obstacle to their ambition when he helped Vietnam U23 flourish over the past time.

Al Khaledzi said: "Vietnam U23 is in the top 4 teams in the continent. Be careful with their development under Park Hang-seo. If UAE has good results against Vietnam, the race in Group D will be much easier to breathe".

In the 2020 AFC U23 Championship, the three teams with the best results (excluding U23 Japan) will have tickets to the Olympic Games in 2020. Japan U23 is the host so naturally there are tickets to attend without caring about Results at the next finals.

In addition to UAE U23 and Vietnam U23, Group D also has Jordan and DPR Korea. The match between Vietnam U23 and UAE U23 will take place on January 10th, 2020.
