Dung is finally back with the national team. During the past eight months, he underwent surgery and a period of recovery after breaking his leg in a V. League game on March 23. After his club Hanoi FC confirmed him fully fit, national head coach Park Hang-seo immediately called Dung for AFF Cup preparations.

Before injury, Dung was one of the most important players in the national team, playing a big part in Vietnam’s AFF Cup 2018 title and SEA Games 30 gold medal win in 2019.
