Defender Toan says goodbye to ASIAD after ankle injury

Defender Vo Huy Toan won't see any more play time in the ongoing Asian Games (ASIAD) in Incheon, the Republic of Korea.

Doctors of the Vietnamese Olympic team said it would take Toan at least three weeks to recover from an ankle injury, a time frame that puts him back on the field after the ASIAD come to a close.

Toan scored Vietnam's first goal in the first Group H match against Iran on September 15. Vietnam built off Toan's goal to beat Iran by 4-1. He left the pitch in the first half after an Iranian defender clashed with him by error.

Vietnam will play Kyrgyzstan for the second match on September 22.
