Vietnam out, Hong Son out?
Away draw with Lebanon saw Vietnam lose its slight chance to qualify for Asian Cup 2011. Obviously Vietnam national team had only themselves to blame as poor finishing cost them at least 5 points in the last 3 games. I believe Vietnam need a sharper striker in front and it's time to recall Huynh Kesley. However it all depends on VFF not Calisto .
Goalkeeper Duong Hong Son, Vietnamese Golden Ball and AFF Cup 2008 MVP, is sure living under huge pressure now as his willingness to play for Vietnam national team is under suspicion. Duong Hong Son had somehow found a ridiculous reason to stay at home right before Vietnam traveled to Lebanon. Many believe that his explanation was a lie. Moreover, Hong Son always had personal reasons to be absent when Vietnam had to play away games in China and Syria. Fans are calling on Calisto to drop Hong Son from Vietnam national team forever.
