VOV.VN - Coach Park Hang-seo and his players of the Vietnam national team left for Singapore on December 1 as they head to compete and defend their championship title at the ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Cup 2020.

The squad held a warm-up session at the Thong Nhat Stadium in Ho Chi Minh City in the morning before flying to Singapore in the afternoon.

Upon arriving in Singapore, the players will train at the stadium of Hougang United FC, which is located roughly 20 minutes from their accommodation.
