Around 7:45 am on March 26 local time (ie 5:45 am Vietnam time), the flight bringing the Vietnamese team to Japan landed safely at Narita International Airport. The members of the delegation quickly completed immigration procedures, tested for Covid-19 and took luggage, then moved to the hotel prepared by the Japan Football Association. The process from the airport to the hotel takes quite a long time.
Since leaving the hotel in Hanoi at 6pm on March 25, Vietnam Tel It took more than 12 hours to get to Japan. The team flew from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City and then connected to Tokyo, settled in and then started preparing for the upcoming match against the home team. The match between Japan and Vietnam will take place at Saitama Stadium at 19:35 on March 29 local time (ie 17:35 on March 29 in Vietnam time). This is also the last match of coach Park Hang-seo’s team in the third qualifying round of the 2022 World Cup.
To Japan this trip, Coach Park Hang-seo can only bring 19 players, including 2 goalkeepers, 4 midfielders, 4 strikers, and 9 defenders. Adding Dang Van Lam to the team in Tokyo, the Vietnamese team has exactly 20 players to compete with the Japanese home team.
The reason comes from the fact that many Vietnamese players contracted Covid-19 during the team gathering and did not recover in time to go to Japan to compete. In addition, coach Park Hang-seo also lost many pillars because of injuries and penalty cards.
