HÀ NỘI — FIFA will help Việt Nam develop women’s football in the central region, according to FIFA football expert Belinda Wilson.

The Australian said she met with the Việt Nam Football Federation (VFF) managers and heads of concerned departments to develop a suitable strategy for Việt Nam in Hà Nội.

According to Wilson, Việt Nam’s women’s football now only focuses on the northern and southern region. While there are no teams in the central region taking part in the National Women’s Football Tournament.

Wilson said it is necessary to create resources to develop Vietnamese women football.

Việt Nam was recently chosen to be part of a project of the world football governing body. The country will join an 18-month programme to develop youth football.

According to deputy chairman of the VFF, Trần Quốc Tuấn, the federation wants to stablise the development of women’s football.

There are many solutions to be completed including linking with programmes on junior football development of the Asian Football Confederation and taking full use of facilities and coaches of the Việt Nam Youth Football Training Centre. — VNS
