The award will be voted for by fans on FIFA’s websites.
The journey is part of a communications plan organised by Budweiser, the main sponsor of the World Cup.
In addition to Dung, the sponsor also invited fellow Vietnamese footballers Le Cong Vinh and Ha Duc Chinh as well as other celebrities to watch the game.
Dung, who shone at the 2018 AFC U23 Championships held in January in China, where Vietnam finished runners-up for the first time, will return home on July 13.
