HANOI (19 July 2012) – The Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) have identified either Japan or Slovakia as their likely destination for a training camp in preparation for the AFF Suzuki Cup this November.

Prior to their training camp abroad, the team will take on Indonesia twice – on 15 September (at home in Hanoi) and then 22 September (away in Jakarta).

After the training camp, the team under chief coach Phan Thanh Hung will then take part in the annual VFF Cup which will involve teams from Iran, North Korea and Turmenistan on 24-28 October in HCM City.
