Singapore Cool With Vietnam Weather

Raddy, as he is more fondly known, said that the team’s preparation have gone like clockwork since their arrival on Sunday and they are all well prepared for the match ahead.

The temperature in the capital city of Hanoi is around 16 degrees celcius during the day and where it will dip well below that during the night.

And in open areas like the My Dinh Stadium, coupled with strong wind the conditions might be a little more testing than usual.

“We are preparing as well as we can and with the weather being no issue, the fact that we are also injury-free ensures that we will have a good preparation,” said Raddy.

“We go into every match and every competition with a win in mind, so there is no such thing as wanting to be defensive against Vietnam.

“Most of the players have played in big matches before and they should be well adjusted to whatever is the condition on match day.”

With ticket sales a concern, the Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) have not yet release the sales figures for match attendance at the 40,000 capacity My Dinh Stadium.

But it is expected that more than 30,000 fans will be braving the cold night to watch the Vietnam national team in action.

Raddy said that the fans should come for the big game tomorrow.

“I don’t see why people should not come for the game,” he quipped.

“This is the most prestigious tournament in the Asean calendar and they should come and support their national team.

“For us, we just want to go in there and get the job done.”
