This is a decision made by the coaching board of the Vietnamese football team after careful consideration, based on the guidance of Vietnamese health authorities on the prevention and control of Covid-19 in the case of Dang Van Lam. The Cezero Osaka club that this goalkeeper plays for has another goalkeeper who is positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Currently, Dang Van Lam is still staying with the host club to compete in the J-League and is expected to fly to the UAE on the night of June 1.

However, in order to ensure the maximum possible safety for the Vietnamese team during the preparation and competition of the upcoming World Cup Qualifiers, through discussions with head coach Park Hang-seo and consulting Epidemiological factors in Dang Van Lam's case, VFF agreed not to summon Dang Van Lam in this gathering of the Vietnamese team.

Not participating with the Vietnamese team in the remaining journey in the Second Qualifier of the World Cup 2022 - Asia region is very unfortunate for individual goalkeeper Dang Van Lam. Although very sad to miss the appointment with the team Dang Van Lam also understands and shares with the difficulties that the team is facing. Dang Van Lam sends his best wishes to the coaching staff and teammates to compete successfully in the next 3 matches to participate in the final qualifying round of the 2022 World Cup.
