In football, Vietnam, coached by Park Hang-seo,
beat Guus Hiddink’s China 2-nil in an U-22 friendly on Sunday. Vietnamese striker Nguyen Tien Linh shined,
scoring both goals in the match in Hubei Province. It was a meaningful victory for Park… as
the Dutch coach was his mentor when they worked closely on the coaching board to take South
Korea to a historic 4th-place finish at the 2002 World Cup. Both teams are preparing for the upcoming
AFC U-23 Championship which will be held in Thailand next January.
