Vietnam’s U23 footballers ready for last match at Doha Cup

HANOI, 28th March, 2023 (WAM) -- Coach Philippe Troussier has encouraged the U23 team of Vietnam to show their best possible performance in the last match at Doha Cup 2023, against Kyrgyzstan, on 29th March (Vietnam time).

The Vietnam News Agency (VNA) quoted Troussier as instructing his players - in the last training session ahead of the match - to address the weaknesses revealed in the two previous games and gave them spiritual support.

He admitted that the losses of 3-0 to Iraq and 4-0 to the UAE at the friendly tournament gave the team precious lessons during the preparation for the 32nd Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games), slated for this May in Cambodia.

The French coach said the players have been training hard to gear up for the 32nd SEA Games, adding that they performed well in the first half of the game against the UAE, one of the six strongest teams in Asia, on 26th March.
