HÀ NỘI — Việt Nam under 23’s got off to a winning start in the U23 International Championship - Vinaphone Cup 2018 tournament in Hà Nội last night.
The young lions came from behind to beat Palestine by two goals to one in the opening match.
This was the first competitive match the U23’s have played since their heroics at the beginning of the year reaching the final of the AFC Tournament in China.
On a rain soaked pitch at Mỹ Đình National stadium the home team struggled to find their feet.
Just before the half hour mark they fell one behind after a good header from Palestine striker Oday Dabbagh.
The goal sparked life into the home side who started to string good passes together and threaten the visitors goal.
The equaliser finally came on the stroke of half time.
