Match-Day. The squad was up early for breakfast; followed by a brisk walk around the streets of old Hanoi that surround the hotel.
Hanoi is a fascinating city. With a thousand years of history, it is modernising quickly with tall glass towers replacing the old. The inner city in which our ultra-modern hotel is based is unlikely to lose its character any time soon though.
It is refreshing to note that a trip overseas is about more than ninety minutes on grass. The whole squad benefits from the experience of travelling and experiencing different cultures. Team bonding is strong.
The clickbait headline? Goalkeeper coach William Phang was quick to react when a lady tumbled off her over-loaded bicycle.
