“It is amazing to see our players here. It has been a long time waiting to meet them in person but because of the pandemic, we did not have a chance," Chayada said. "In 2019, I met them in Bangkok. Now, I am here and welcome them with my friends. It is really wonderful when we can join Vietnamese fans to greet them."
