NUMBERS Vietnam lost 2:1 against Uzbekistan on Saturday night in the Final of the Asia Cup. From the hysterical celebrations you wouldn't have known they lost. There was a 10 minute pause of stunned silence and then the nation erupted into a 24 hour party. It was incredible to watch here in Ha Noi. The next day the capital city remained in lockdown as people waited in the freezing cold to watch their players return home. By sheer coincidence I was at the right time in right place watching the boys come home cheered on by the crowds. What an amazing country. What an amazing last day!
