Japan and Vietnam draw the curtain on their 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign when they go head to head at the Saitama Stadium on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Vietnam will be without a number of crucial players, including defender Do Duy Manh, midfielder Nguyen Trong Hoang, and goalkeeper Dang Van Lam, who are all recovering from injuries.
Nguyen Tien Linh, a 24-year-old attacker, was forced off the field in the 54th minute against Oman last time out due to injury and is a significant doubt for Tuesday's match.
If Tuan Hai Pham and Quang Hai Nguyen are unable to overcome their injuries, Nguyen Van Toan could be called upon to fill in for him in the final third.
After being called up to the senior squad by Hang-seo, German-born defender Adriano Schmidt, who plays for Binh Dinh, might make his debut.
