HÀ NỘI — Việt Nam’s U20 squad will play one more friendly match ahead of the FIFA World Cup in South Korea next month.

The Việt Nam Football Federation has invited Vanuatu, also a World Cup participant, to play Việt Nam on May 14 in South Korea, one week ahead of their first match against New Zealand in Group E.

Vanuatu are in Group B with Venezuela, Germany and Mexico. They are considered the underdogs of the group and have almost no chance to make the knock-out stage at the global event.

The country is making its World Cup debut at this event.

Việt Nam arrived home on April 28 following two weeks of training in Germany. They will practice ahead of their friendly encounter against Argentina on May 10 in HCM City.

The team will depart for South Korea a day later. — VNS
