Mr.Duong Vu Lam, Representatives of the team
It is such a privilege to finish this training camp successfully considering the good relationship between the Japan Football Association and the Vietnam Football Federation. Facilities here were in very good condition and we could have good training throughout the camp period. The players had very good experiences by having matches with Japanese teams and we all were quite impressed by the Japanese players’ professional and serious attitudes. We look forward to good relationship and cooperation with Japan.

Graechen Guilaume,Head Coach
Firstly, I would like to thank JFA for arranging this training camp for us. The environment was very nice and our players had good experiences for their future to play with excellent Japanese players. We could finish the camp perfectly in a very positive mood. We look forward to coming back to Japan in the future.
