Earlier, Park’s troops spent more than six hours in flight. It then took nearly two hours for the whole squad to take RT-PCR tests, collect luggage and perform entry procedures at Dubai International Airport.

This evening, the players will convene their first training session to prepare for the China match.

According to the latest announcement from the Asian Football Confederation (AFC), the clash between China and Vietnam will take place at 9pm local time on October 7 (00:00am on October 8 Vietnamese time), instead of 7pm local time (10pm Vietnam time) as originally scheduled.
