Earlier, Vi?t Nam lost to U20 Argentina 1-4 in HCM City.
Vi?t Nam played with an active attack-defence playing style. However, Vanuata quicky opened the score in the fourth minute.
Vi?t Nam levelled the score of 1-1 in the 41st minute.
Vi?t Nam played better in the second half, with sharp attacks. However, they failed to convert their efforts into goals.
“We tested all positions in this game to prepare for the first match of the qualifying round of the Cup. Competing against a strange rival, our players didn’t play very confidently,” coach Hoàng Anh Tu?n said.
“After the break, Vi?t Nam showed their skills. Vanuatu have the same way of playing as U20 New Zealand. Therefore, after this match, we are better prepared for the opening match of the Cup,” Tu?n added.
Vi?t Nam are in Group E with France, Honduras and New Zealand. They will meet New Zealand on May 22, then face France on May 25, and Honduras on May 28. — VNS
