He made the statement during a ceremony in Hanoi to announce Việt Nam Professional Milk JSC (VPMilk) as official sponsor of both the Vietnamese national team and U23 team.

At the ASIAD 2018, Vietnam’s hopes are high after coming second at the 2018 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U23 Championship held in China early this year.

General Secretary of the Vietnam Football Federation Lê Hoài Anh said he believes that with the support of VPMilk, athletes can enjoy better health to compete in the tournament.

VPMilk Director of External Relations Nguyễn Thu Ngọc said they are proud of the team’s success and as such the firm has decided to continue partnering with the national football team for the second consecutive year.

The event will take place in Indonesia from August 18-September 2, with a record 32 men’s football teams registered for the competition.
