According to the Vietnam Football Federation (VFF), Coach Akira Ijiri and his players departed at 1 PM on September 21 from Hanoi’s Noi Bai International Airport.

With the early departure, the squad will have more time to acclimatize to the weather conditions and competition in Tashkent, especially given the city’s current below-10-degree-Celsius temperature and heavy snow.
