HA NOI (VNS) — In the second friendly match in the United Kingdom, U19 Viet Nam tied with U19 Wimbledon 2-2 yesterday.

Hosts Wimbledon controlled the match from the beginning and opened their goal in the 10th minute, demonstrating their superior physical strength.

Viet Nam, which is on a European tour, created numerous opportunities to score. Despite this, Cong Phuong levelled the score in the 35th minute after receiving a pass from Van Toan.

Within an hour, the hosts scored their second goal. However, only three minutes later, Duy Manh equalised the score to 2-2 for Viet Nam.

As planned, Viet Nam will now meet U19 Coventry City on March 13. In their first friendly, Viet Nam beat Arsenal 3-0. —VNS
