In order to have enough training and backup troops,  Coach Park Hang Seo additionally called SLNA goalkeeper Van Hoang . Thus, the Vietnamese team has 4 goalkeepers: Tran Nguyen Manh, Nguyen Tuan Manh, Vu Tuyen Quang and Nguyen Van Hoang. 

Before that, midfielder To Van Vu had Covid-19 so he also missed the match with Oman. Coach Park called Chau Ngoc Quang to replace the Binh Duong club player.
