It is difficult for Tien Linh to join the Vietnamese team on the way to fight Australia.


After the case of Nguyen Hoang Duc and Nguyen Van Toan, another Vietnamese player has just been found to be infected with Covid-19. That is the main striker Nguyen Tien Linh. According to research, Tien Linh performed a quick test for Covid-19 himself when he arrived in Hanoi to prepare to join the Vietnamese team and gave a positive result.

Until yesterday, the number 1 striker of Vietnam Tel was re-tested by RT-PCT method to confirm the results. On the morning of January 13, RT-PCR test results confirmed that Tien Linh was infected with Covid-19.

It is known that Tien Linh reported the situation to Coach Park Hang Seo and the Vietnam Football Federation . Currently, the health of the leading striker of Vietnamese football is still stable and has no serious symptoms. Tien Linh is self-isolating at home according to the instructions of the authorities.

In the context of the complicated development of the epidemic, it is not desirable for any member of the Vietnamese team to become F0. But having 3 players infected with Covid-19 more or less makes Coach Park Hang Seo difficult about the personnel issue of the Vietnamese team preparing to be a guest in Australia.

In addition, the Vietnamese players infected with Covid-19 at this time made many people worry that “golden star warriors” would have difficulty entering Australia on January 21. Especially when Australia is tightening immigration regulations related to Covid-19 and there is a noisy lawsuit of tennis player Novak Djokovic.

According to regulations, people entering Australia must meet two conditions: Get two doses of the vaccine (the last injection must be given at least 7 days before departure for Australia) and have a negative test certificate for Covid- 19 by RT-PCR performed within 72 hours before departure time. Midfielder Nguyen Hoang Duc has tested negative for Covid-19 since January 11.

However, Hoang Duc still had to wait until January 16 for RT-PCR test again, continued to have negative results before he could gather with Vietnam Tel. While Van Toan and Tien Linh were recently discovered to be infected with Covid-19, the possibility that the Vietnamese striker duo could make a guest appearance in Australia is still open.
