Korean football coach Park Hang-seo, who helped Vietnam win the gold medal at the Southeast Asian Games, is currently training the Vietnamese U-23 team in the Korean city of Tongyeong. The players received a warm welcome and are doing their best to prepare for a competition in Thailand.
Players donning yellow and red uniforms appear upbeat as they warm up for training. They are Vietnam’s U-23 team, who visited Korea along with their coach, Park Hang-seo.
