On the Arsenal website, England’s young talent Alex Oxlade Chamberlain has spoken of his pride at being part of the first visit to Vietnam by a Premier league club.

“It’s really good and first to go a beautiful country like Vietnam and share with our fans out there is really good for us as well. It’s really a good thing to be part of.” Axlade Chamberlain said.
