The final training session was held yesterday (Tuesday) evening at the My Dinh Stadium in Hanoi.
The squad arrived twenty minutes early and limbered up on the running track. Road traffic was heavy and we did not want to be late for our 6pm training slot. AFC rules are very strict regarding training sessions. We are allowed one-hour on the playing surface at the stadium at which the game will be played, at the allotted time.
The team are in good spirits after arriving Monday evening in Hanoi. Build-up is a carefully-managed combination of relaxation, good nutrition, and training. Head Coach Juergen Raab is very clear about what he wants, and the squad are responding well.
