ĐÀ NẴNG — Việt Nam's U21 team crushed Hanyang University of South Korea 4-1 in the first match of the International U21 Football Championship 2019 at Hòa Xuân Stadium in the central city of Đà Nẵng on Wednesday.
Heavy rain made it difficult for both teams to show their skills, and the first half finished goalless.
After the break, Văn Công headed home to give Việt Nam the lead.
The South Korean side bounced backs strongly and levelled the score in the 65th minute.
However, Văn Bửu, Vũ Tín and Minh Dĩ were all on hand to put a glossy finish on the result for Việt Nam.
Việt Nam will next take on FK Sarajevo U19s on November 1.
The other teams involved in the tournament are Sarajevo U19s, and a side made up of Japanese students.
The event will serve as an excellent chance for Việt Nam’s U21 squad to gain experience ahead of important upcoming tournaments.
The players will also have the opportunity to impress ahead of selection for the U22 team that will take part in the SEA Games 30 in the Philippines. — VNS
