Costa Rica player: 'I am very impressed with Cong Phuong's talent'
Foreign soldier Ariel Rodriguez has shared his personal taste and impression about the country of Vietnam since arriving here.
Ariel Rodriguez had more than 2 weeks of training with his new club in Ho Chi Minh City. He is one of two Costa Rican players to join the Sai Thanh team, so he receives great attention.
Recently he had the opportunity to interview with On Sports about his past time in Ho Chi Minh City.
"I like the number 7, but since there are already my teammates wearing it, I chose the number 77", Ariel began about the reason for choosing the current number of shirts in Ho Chi Minh City.
Ariel could not remember everyone's name in 2 weeks, but the training process on the field helps this player realize which player is most impressive.
"I do not have all the names of my teammates here. I really like the play of the player with the number 21 shirt (Cong Phuong), I forgot his name, he is an excellent player".
Ariel said his most memorable memory with Costa Rica NT was the match against Honduras in the World Cup 2018 Qualifiers. It was a home match for Costa Rica and Ariel was only on the bench. Ariel said he loves the Vietnamese pho and the coffee here is also very palatable.
Ariel Rodriguez is 30 years old, has had many years of playing football in Thailand, so the climate and culture are a bit similar. This player forte is playing behind the striker or play drifting, quite similar to Cong Phuong. At the same time, he is also very skillful and has the same dribbling skills as the No. 21 striker.
