HA NOI — Coach Hoang Anh Tuan and his players have started training for their AFF U18 Championship in Ha Noi discrediting a rumour that Tuan’s coaching days were over after he led the country’s U20 team to its first world cup appearance in May. 

Twenty-six players - four goalkeepers, six defenders, nine midfielder and seven strikers - who were selected from the national U17 and U19 tournaments, gathered in Ha Noi on Saturday. 

They will have about one month to sharpen their skills under Tuan and his two assistants for the regional tournament in Myanmar on September 4-18.

Viet Nam are in Group B with Indonesia, Brunei, the Philippines and the hosts.

Group A includes Thailand, East Timor, Malaysia, Singapore, Campuchia and Laos.
