Goalkeeper Lam rejoins Vietnamese teammates for World Cup training

Lam, a star keeper who has been with Vietnam through major successes in recent years, has been absent ever since the 0-0 match with Thailand at Hanoi's My Dinh Stadium in November 2019 in the second round of the World Cup qualifiers. He has gone to Japan to play for Cerezo Osaka since, and then the Covid-19 pandemic hit.

Filling in his void at the time was veteran goalkeeper Bui Tan Truong.

To rejoin his teammates for the upcoming qualifiers, Lam flew to Doha, Qatar before riding a jet for the Vietnamese football team to Saudi Arabia. Besides Lam, coach Park Hang-seo also brought Truong and Nguyen Van Toan for the goalkeeper position.

After having their samples collected for Covid-19 testing at the Riyadh airport, Lam and his teammates were quarantined until their results returned. Upon testing negative, they began to practice immediately Saturday evening.

This is the first time Vietnam have managed to enter the final round of qualifiers for the World Cup.

They lack several key midfielders and defenders due to injuries.
