Vietnam U23's Tien Linh confident to continue scoring against UAE

Two months ago, Vietnamese striker Nguyen Tien Linh impressed Asian football fans by scoring an amazing goal against the UAE team, and he wants to do it again at the AFC U23 Championship.

When Vietnam met UAE at the World Cup qualification round, Nguyen Tien Linh scored the only goal of the match by a rocket outside the box.

It has been one of the most beautiful goals of Vietnam teams in 2019 as it helped them stand at the top of the Group G with 11 points gained in 5 matches. In terms of Nguyen Tien Linh, that goal helped him fortify a regular place in the starting lineup of the Vietnam team.

"I was still very happy each time I thought about that moment", said Tien Linh, who is playing for the four-time Vietnam League champion Becamex Binh Duong.

"Consequently, when Vietnam U23 meets UAE again at the 2020 AFC U23 Championship, I  want to do it again, scoring a stunning goal for my team, winning the game. And I believe that it does not an impossible thing for me".

At the 30th SEA Games men's football event, Tien Linh scored 6 times, including many important goals to help his team become the champion.

At 22, Tien Linh proved that he is one of the best strikers in Southeast Asia at the moment. Consequently, his biggest ambition is not to win AFC U23 Championship or any regional title. He wants to play at the FIFA World Cup with the Vietnam team in the future.
