DONG NAI (VNS) — Viet Nam's U-23 squad yesterday tied 1-1 with V.League 1's Dong Nai, during a friendly match held at the Go Dau Stadium in the Binh Duong Province.
Despite being considered a strong side, the U-23s suffered an unexpected goal loss during the 20th minute when Dong Nai striker Hai Anh made a strong header from a close distance.
Toshyia Miura's team established their domination with consecutive attacks and levelled the result near the end of the first half with the help of Ngoc Thang.
However, it was all they could do against the team that is placed at the bottom of the rankings table.
Earlier, they had pocketed two wins and one draw during their friendly tour in preparation for the upcoming Asia U-23 Football Championship's qualifier in Malaysia.
Their next match will be against Thailand on March 22. — VNS
