Coach Park Hang Seo has received bad news when goalkeeper Bui Tien Dung was injured and most likely to sit on the bench in the next match against Jordan U23.

On the evening of January 10th, Vietnam U23 had the first match at the 2020 AFC U23 Championship with the opponent UAE U23. Playing actively and creating some relatively clear opportunities, however the Vietnam U23 strikers were unable to convert chances into goals and accept the 0-0 draw.

However, after the game ended, Bui Tien Dung reported unhappy news to Coach Park Hang Seo. The number 1 goalkeeper of Vietnam U23 was injured after a brave attempt to catch the ball in the 57th minute and was fouled by the UAE striker.

This situation caused Bui Tien Dung to suffer a shoulder injury. It was this goalkeeper who confirmed after the match: "I'm currently having shoulder pain and I don't know whether I can play the next match or not".

If Bui Tien Dung fails to return in the upcoming match against Jordan U23, this will be a huge loss for coach Park Hang Seo. Compared to the other two goalkeepers that the Korean strategist brought to the 2020 AFC U23 Championship (Nguyen Van Toan and Y Eli Nie), Bui Tien Dung is definitely the person with the most international experience.

After the first matchday of Group D, Jordan U23 was at the top of the table with 3 points, while Vietnam U23 ranked 2nd together with UAE U23 with 1 point obtained. Therefore, the team of Coach Park Hang-Seo will need a victory to be able to decide their own fate before the last match against DPR Korea U23 on January 16th.
