Arsenal players welcomed in Vietnam

A plane touched down a Noi Bai International Airport runway early on July 15, bringing Arsenal FC players to Vietnam for a friendly with the national squad.

They took an express coach to travel directly to Intercontinental hotel through a VIP gate instead of going through customs clearance procedures as usual.

Hundreds of Arsenal FC supporters converged on the airport on the evening of July 14 hoping to see their favourite stars.

Despite changes in customs procedures, many supporters rushed to the VIP Gate, welcoming their icons and singing the FC’s traditional song.

The Arsenal players, who played Indonesia one day earlier, showed their friendliness towards the Vietnamese supporters, waving their hands from the coach.

The club’s managing board will have a press briefing in the afternoon, and Arsene Wenger’s players will have warm-up exercises at My Dinh Stadium on July 16.

Arsenal will take on Vietnam on July 17 in a friendly during their Asia Tour. It will be a challenging game for Vietnam as Arsenal crushed Indonesia 7-0 in an earlier friendly on July 14.
