Competition: Asia Challenge 2020

In two consecutive days on January 18th and 19th, the Asia Challenge 2020 will take place in Shah Alam Stadium, Malaysia. The first match of Bangkok United will be a clash versus Hanoi FC - the V League current champion.

Hanoi FC recently said goodbye to striker Kebe after the end of his contract. This is not surprising news as before the 2020 season kicked off, Hanoi FC signed a contract with Rimario. Thus, the foreign trio of Hanoi FC next season will be Moses, Omar and Rimario.

In particular, Rimario (No. 9) can help Hanoi Club flourish in the 2020 season after moving from Thanh Hoa Club. The Jamaican striker is a quality contract, replacing Hoang Vu Samson and Oseni who have parted with the capital team.

The most significant absence of Hanoi FC in this tournament is the 4 players of U23 Vietnamese players Nguyen Quang Hai, Nguyen Thanh Chung, Truong Van Thai Quy and Tran Dinh Trong who have just competed at the 2020 AFC U23 Championship.

True Bangkok United meanwhile is ranked 4th in the 2019 Thai-League. This team possesses various Thai national players like Tristan Do and Manuel Tom Bihr. Bangkok United is led by Brazilian coach Alexandré Pölking. His reign at Bangkok United has lasted for 5 years, from 2014 up to present.

Bangkok United's notable foreign footballers are Brazilian striker Vander Luiz, Japanese national player Hajime Hosogai, center-back Everton and Nelson Bonilla - El Salvador striker.
