Vietnam has recorded a hard-fought victory over DPR Korea in the 2016 AFC U-19 Championship yesterday. Goals from Ha Duc Chinh and Doan Van Hau sealed a 2-1 win for the young Golden Stars.
After the match, Vietnam U19 team coach Hoang Anh Tuan said he is very happy with the result.
“I’m very happy today. Everybody said before kick-off that we were the outsider in this, and you can talk about winning or losing, but we have to try 100 percent and today you saw that the players were fighting and I’m very happy today”, the coach told local media.
“Our mentality was excellent. DPR Korea are very strong but I discussed with the players and I told them the first match is always very difficult psychologically and we showed more fight and that was the key”, he said.
