U23 Vietnam football team practices for Asian Games

Head coach Park Hang-seo said he chose Binh Duong, which neighbors Saigon, as the practice location because the local weather matched that of Indonesian capital Jakarta, where the premier Asian sporting contest will be held this year.

Vietnam will compete in Group D along with Japan, Pakistan and Nepal. Its first match will be against Pakistan on August 14.

The stadium was packed with hundreds of the U-23 soccer team in Binh Duong. They gathered to support national team.

Hundreds of fans rushed the stadium to watch the national team go their paces on Thursday.
