NDO – Head coach Park Hang-seo and his Vietnamese side had their first training session at Rizal Memorial Stadium in Manila, the Philippines, on November 23, in preparation for their Group B opener against Brunei U22s at the 30th Southeast Asian (SEA) Games tomorrow.

Vietnam U22s players commence their first training session at Rizal Memorial Stadium in the cool weather with a temperature of about 28 degrees Celsius.

Arriving at the stadium quite early, the Vietnamese team had to wait for about 30 minutes until the SEA Games 2019 referee completed their pitch assessment, before starting their training.

In the first training session, Park instructed the players to warm up before entering into tactical exercises. In particular, the Republic of Korea tactician had personal expertise exchanges with goalkeeper Bui Tien Dung.

The players worked hard aiming to impress head coach Park to increase their chances of playing in the opening match.

In the Vietnam U22s squad to the Philippines, Park has summoned six players from the national team, including two aged over 22, Do Hung Dung and Nguyen Trong Hoang.

Fans are expecting that Park and his troops will achieve their SEA Games gold medal target following the positive results of Vietnamese football over recent times.

As scheduled, Vietnam U22s will play Brunei U22s in their Group B opener on November 25 before taking on Laos, Indonesia, Singapore and Thailand in the following days.
