A draw with No. 1 seed Vidit Gujrathi pushed Le Quang Liem to No. 2 as Harikrishna (India) thrashed Salem Saleh (Saudi Arabia) to move up to the same 5.5 points as Vietnam’s but No. 1 thanks to more than low differences in standards.

Coach Gong Wujun can’t decide his contract with VFF

The U23 Vietnam team was impressive in the final round of U23 Asia 2022, with a game completely different from the “foundation” that coach Park Heng-seo has built over the past 5 years. The long-controversial emergency reform of Vietnamese football was suddenly kicked off by “substitute” Gong Wujun, and the effect even exceeded expectations.

Mr. Gong expressed his high appreciation for this goodwill and would be happy if VFF renews his contract, but everything is still open in the future. He needs approval from coach Park Hyung-seo, who has the highest authority on the national team’s expertise – where young players are.

Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Japan could host 2023 Asian Cup

According to the original plan, China will be the host country of the 2023 Asian Cup to be held from June 6 to 7. However, due to the impact of the Covid-19 outbreak, the world’s most populous country has decided to withdraw the hosting rights.

If any country qualifies, it will send out tenders until June 30. In addition, the AFC leadership also confirmed that the timing of the 2023 Asian Cup final will not change.

Currently, Qatar, Japan and Saudi Arabia are the Asian representatives (along with South Korea, Iran and Australia) for the 2022 World Cup. They not only have excellent national team quality, but also have long-term experience in organizing sports events.
