Twenty-five of San Diego’s Exodus female junior athletes and coaches participated in a match with Vietnamese Đức Giang team, yesterday at Gia Lâm sports complex, 453 Nguyễn Đức Thuận Street, Gia Lâm district.
The match was part of a sports exchange programme to create friendship among young people of the two nations.
