In recent years, Dang Van Lam has always been the number 1 goalkeeper of the Vietnamese team. The goalkeeper with two Vietnamese and Russian bloodlines returns to Vietnam to play in the colors of Binh Dinh club from the second half of the 2022 season.

Before these moves, Filip Nguyen shared: “I just focus on my performance. I do not want to pay much attention to the comparison with goalkeeper Dang Van Lam. There are many comparisons between me and Van Lam, but I just want to try to do my best work. When I was in the Czech Republic, I received a lot of messages from Vietnamese fans, that they wanted me to return home. I’m really grateful for everyone’s love for me.”
In the last match of the first match of the second phase of the V-League 2023 between Hanoi FC and Binh Dinh, Filip Nguyen suddenly appeared in the stands of Hang Day Stadium to watch.

If I am on the national team list, I will also do my best to contribute to the team.”

Regarding the difference of the competition environment between Vietnam and the Czech Republic, Filip Nguyen said: “The biggest problem in my opinion is that the weather in Vietnam is different from the Czech Republic.
