    Binh Duong, who were V -League champions in 2007-08, will be down six key players during the game who are in training with the national team in preparation for the ASEAN Football Federation Championship (AFF) next month.

    The host team remains confident, with a top form line-up including goalie Nguyen The Anh and Brazilian-born Alves Kesley.

    TOT, who ranked in the Thailand Premier League top five this year, will miss captain Suchao Nutnum to the Thailand national team. However 1993 Thailand Football Association Cup winner field Kone Seydou and Kavadio Doniel Pascal from the Ivory Coast will be on hand to show their stuff.

    Opening day will also see a face-off between SHB Da Nang and New Radiant SC from Maldives, who will make their first BTV Cup appearance with national team member’s Shamveel Qasim and Ibrahim Amil.

    The Maldives team will compete with a squad of newly-recruited players, including brothers Urumov Andrey Kolev and Urumov Spas Kolevm, Kosturkov Yanko Blagoev and Bulgarian coach Stoykov Iordan Ivanov.

    This year’s BTV Cup team line-up includes Binh Duong, Da Nang, New Radiant, and TOT in group A and Hai Phong Cement, Dong Tam Long An, Matsubara and a South Korean student team in group B.

    The top team from each group will face-off in the semi-finals to qualify for the championship match and the winner’s US$20,000 cash prize.

    Stoikov says he expects the best from his players

    New Radiant’s coach Stoikov has said that he expects the best performance from his players during the upcoming Binh Duong Television International Football Tournament held in Vietnam. In the first ever press interview after Stoikov’s return to the Maldives, he said to maldivesoccer.com after this evening’s practice session, that the opposition teams in the tournament are strong.
    “The opposition teams are strong. They play Korean football and it would be very difficult for us”
    When questioned about the departure of key players from New Radiant, coach Stoikov said that now it’s time for them to build up a team
    “It’s time for us to build up a team and am sure we can give a very good fight with the current squad. They have the potential to grow and New Radiant never gives up! We want to win championships and the tradition would continue”.
    Stoikov also highlighted the importance of the tournament
    “The players do not get much International match experience and this would be a huge chance for them to boost up their talent. It would give them match experience before the local tournament”
    Stoikov also noted that all the players except Thoriq (Tom) is fit to play in the tournament.
    “I can’t say anything about the fitness of Tom at the moment. But other than that all the players are fit to play”
    When asked about his return to the Maldives, Stoikov joked with a smile on his face.
    “I have been suffering the last two years. I always have a special place for Maldives. I have been closely following Maldivian football and I was really happy when Maldives won SAFF Championship”
    Stoikov has been the most successful coach New Radiant has ever signed. He was in the whelm of the club, when New Radiant went in to the semi finals of the AFC Cup in 2005. Stoikov’s return is also marked with three foreign players, including brothers Urumov Andrey Kolev and Urumov Spas Kolevm and Kosturkov Yanko Blagoev
    New Radiant would meet SHB Da Nang of Vietnam in the opening match of the tournament on November 28th, 2008.
    New Radiant, TOT of Thailand, Binh Duong and Da Nang of Vietnam are in group A meanwhile, Hai Phong Cement, Dong Tam Long An, Matsubara and a South Korean student team ar in group B.
    The top team from each group will face-off in the semi-finals to qualify for the championship match and the winner’s US$20,000 cash prize.
    New Radiant’s departure to Vietnam has been delayed now and it has been rescheduled to 26th November.

    New Radiant tastes a bitter result in Vietnam

    New Radiant has suffered another huge loss in the ongoing Bin Daung Television International Football tournament against Vietnam's league champions Bing Dong. The home side hammered the blues easily by 5 – 0. They scored the first two goals in the first half and the remaining three goals were scored in the latter half. One of the goals scored by Bing Dong was by a penalty. All the goals were scored by foreign players.

    According to New Radiant's official, the Bing Dong team's main play was based on the four foreign players. Three Brazilians and a South African played for the Vietnamese Champions.

    The official also added that New Radiant players did not make huge mistakes, but the opposition team were too strong for the blues.

    He further added that Ifrah, Amil and Shamveel Ghasim played outstandingly in the match.

    According to reports, TOT of Thailand was unable to join the tournament due to the strikes in Bangkok Airports. Hence, the matches in the group were played among three teams.

    However, the official said to maldivesoccer.com that the arrival date would not change despite the change.

    "We would arrive on December 6th. There has not been any change in the schedule".

    Not surprising that TOT have failed to make it so far.

    But if they arrive on the 6th December, surely the tournement then is just about over?

    Well, yes, i'm guessing that, but New Radiant are already there, so i'm not sure wh ythey would be preparing for 6th December, i guess that would be the matchdate between them and TOT.

    But to be honest, i've lost interest in this tournement now, as nobody releases any coverage apart from Maldives media whom are miles away from Vietnam
