Vietnam has been the first Southeast Asian team getting point at U-20 World Cup. This precious point not only has marked a landmark of Vietnam’s football at a world-class tournament but also has opened a window of opportunity for Coach Hoang Anh Tuan and his players to continue their journey in South Korea.
