Troussier on this occasion called up some new players including midfielder Le Pham Thanh Long from Dong-A Thanh Hoa Club and Bui Van Duc from Hong Linh Ha Tinh Club.

He also proposed summoning three players who are playing abroad to join the team, who are Nguyen Quang Hai (playing for Pau Club, France), Nguyen Van Toan (Seoul E-Land Club, the Republic of Korea), and Nguyen Cong Phuong (Yokohama Club, Japan).

The Vietnamese team is scheduled to gather from June 5. However, because many players are still playing in the 11th round of the V.League, all the summoned players are expected to start training on June 7.
