|Toshiya Miura and his players.
Coach Toshiya Miura has included eight U23 players who have just finished their Asian Games stint in the national team now training in Japan for the ASEAN Football Federation Cup.
They joined 22 other teammates who flew to Japan yesterday to take part in a 20-day training course at Sakai National Training Centre, also known as J-GREEN Sakai in Osaka.
During this training, Miura will receive support from physique trainer Fujimoto Hiroo, who has recently been working online with Miura to create a suitable curriculum for the players.
Viet Nam will also play matches against three Japanese teams to enable Miura to evaluate his players' progress. The team will return home on October 16. — VNS
