Vietnam national team head coach Nguyen Huu Thang said he didn’t think his team was drawn into an “easier” group in the 2016 AFF Suzuki Cup.
At the group stage, the Golden Stars will play against co-hosts Myanmar, Malaysia and the qualification stage winners.
Expert rated the group as relatively easier than the other one, which consists of defending champions Thailand, four-time champions Singapore, co-hosts Philippines and Indonesia.
However, coach Huu Thang made it clear that his team will not underestimate its opponents.
“Actually, I think there is no easy group at the 2016 AFF Suzuki Cup. The teams are very well prepared. Besides that, Cambodia’s victory against Singapore proved that the teams are more or less in the same class”, the former player said.
