National coach Alfred Riedl
National coach Alfred Riedl believes the match against Indonesia in the Group C preliminary rounds of the Beijing Olympics on June 6 is a crucial one for the Vietnamese side.
“Defeating Lebanon at home on May 16 is pretty well impossible as goalkeeper Duc Chuong and midfielder Minh Chuyen are almost certain to miss out. So the game against Indonesia will be the most crucial game for Viet Nam,” Riedl told reporters.
At the moment Viet Nam is tied with Lebanon at the top of Group C on nine points, whereas Indonesia is in the throes of a losing streak with a points tally to match.
