At the training session on February 3, the coaching staff mainly let the players recover from the last match. Fitness coach Cedric Roger spent about 20 minutes at the beginning of the session for the whole team to meditate and do some yoga, breathing and relaxation movements, creating a comfortable atmosphere for team members.

The Vietnamese women’s training team continues to closely monitor and adjust the diets and cooking methods to suit the members’ taste . The team is greatly supported by the Vietnamese consulate in Mumbai in buying more food and nutritional supplements for the players.

Before that, in the first few days when arriving in India, the Vietnamese women’s team had to use a menu that did not suit their taste. This is due to differences in culture and processing methods. The team leader actively worked with the hotel to improve the problem. The team also received great support from expatriates, supplemented with food and improved meals.

The match against Taiwan (China) takes place at 2:30 pm on February 6 (Vietnam time). This is a hot sunny hour with low humidity, which consumes a lot of the players’ physical strength. In order to best adapt to the weather conditions, coach Mai Duc Chung arranged the training time for the remaining 2 sessions in the right time frame.

The Vietnamese women’s team is temporarily leading the play-off round after a 2-0 victory over Thailand on February 2. On February 4, the team was given a break, making room for the Taiwan (China) women’s match against Thailand.
