Vietnam national team squad for the away match against Syria will be without Duong Hong Son, Nguyen Minh Phuong, Le Tan Tai, Tran Duy Quang, Tran Trong Binh, Dao Van Phong, Tran Dinh Dong and Bui Quang Huy. Calisto also moved goalkeeper Bui Tan Truong from U23 squad to the senior team. He is 188cm in height and is able to deal with high balls quite well. He may be best choice for Vietnam against taller Syria strikers as the first-leg only goal was scored from a header. Duong Hong Son is a fantastic shot-stopper but high balls are his nightmare.
So in a total of 18 players selected, half of them are U23 players. Calisto will put his faith on young players who has just won VFF Cup for a tough test in Syria. When Vietnam have nothing left to lose, can they make a miracle in Syria ?
