In the afternoon of September 23rd, all members of training board , U-19 Viet Nam team has landed Tan Son Nha airport- Ho Chi Minh. Coming back form Southeast Asian U-19 Football in Indonesia, our young players show an impressive performance, when organizers judge that Viet Nam has the most attractive playing style. Though we only rank second at this championship, U-19 Viet Nam receives warm welcoming from mass media means.
Coach Grachen answers briefly media’s question :” If we had played better, we should have scored in two official halves. There are 70 % of U-19 Viet Nam players are in 16 and 17 years of age. They are still young and we should look at the bright future in stead of the near result. And about the referee, I have no comment. He’s a part of the game. I and my players still send congratulations to the champions, they are braver than us in spot penalty. The last thing, I really appreciate with Viet Nam supporters, you surprised me right after landing at the air port.”
Though U19 Viet Nam only rank the second, we create a professional style with dignified playing which marked a young team from the S country. In the final game between Viet Nam and U-19 Indonesia, especially in the second half and 30 minutes of extra time, the hosts played fairly agressively. Moreover, the Thai Land referee missed many indonesian players’ fault, U19 Viet Nam still play with a professional style, they only concentrated in the game but opponents’ trick.
Coach Graechen and players have 2 days of rest, they will be back for practising for U19 Asian Championship qualifying. Viet Nam will be in group F together with Australia, Taiwan and Hong Kong, this group will be hold from October 3rd to October 7th at Kuala Lumpur ( Malaysia).
