The tournament will feature eight Asian teams, including the Republic of  Korea, Saudi Arabia, Uzbekistan, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Iraq, Thailand, Vietnam and the hosts Qatar.

For the Vietnamese team, the tournament will be a crucial warm-up for the Southeast Asian Games in Cambodia in May. With the squad gearing up for these high-profile events, their performance in Doha will be closely watched by football enthusiasts and experts alike.

Newly-appointed coach Troussier is looking forward to taking charge at his first tournament.

The draw for the event will be held in early March, with each team competing in three matches, similar to the U23 Dubai Cup 2022.

At the Dubai Cup 2022, Vietnam finished ninth among a total of 10 participating teams after recording a goalless draw against Iraq and losing to Croatia and Uzbekistan with a score of 1-0.
