Vietnamese-Czech centre back Michal Nguyen was reportedly offered to play for Vietnam national team at AFF Suzuki Cup 2012. The 22-year-old is currently playing for Czech second-tier club Banik Most and had a couple of appearances last season. Although Michal can't speak Vietnamese, he's tempted by Vietnam's offer and is in process of acquiring Vietnamese citizenship through his father's root.
Another Czech-based player, Mac Hong Quan, is member of Vietnam U22 squad. Despite the team's disappointing display at AFC U22 Championship qualifiers in Myanmar, the 20-year-old midfielder showed some signs of quality. His contract with Sparta Prague B has expired earlier this month.
