JAPAN (VNS) — Viet Nam's U-19 squad defeated a student team of the Osaka Sangyo University of Japan 4-0 in their last friendly match of the training course yesterday.
The visitors, despite being the weaker opponents, set up their domination from the first seconds and created a number of opportunities. Three of them were converted into goals in the first half itself.
The first two went to Vietnamese captain Nguyen Cong Phuong and the third was scored by his teammate Nguyen Van Toan, who made it 3-0 with a straight shot.
The result would have been different if striker Le Van Son had not missed a penalty and the pole had not denied their shoot-out twice.
Phan Van Duc made it 4-0 for Viet Nam in the middle of the second half, making it a beautiful good-bye for the team after weeks of training and competing in Japan.
They will arrive in Viet Nam today and start preparing for the Southeast Asian U22 Football Championship in Brunei in August. — VNS
