However, until the present time, the overseas Vietnamese goalkeeper's application for citizenship has not been completed. It is expected that Filip Nguyen can go to Vietnam in the second match that takes place on October 10th.

Even without Filip Nguyen's service, Coach Park Hang Seo could still be assured of his position in the wood frame, because goalkeeper Dang Van Lam was in a dazzling manner at Muangthong United. The number one Vietnamese pitcher is the most important factor to help Muangthong unbeaten with 7 wins, 1 draw and 22 points. The SCG team from the relegation position at the beginning of the season, suddenly revived strongly.

Van Lam has an advantage in situations of facing the best strikers of Thailand, because he is playing and eating with two strikers Teerasil Dangda and Kraisorn.
