July 21, 2023 - 09:53
The women's team has qualified for the World Cup for the first time. Here's an introduction to members of the squad.

No. 10

NAME: Trần Thị Hải Linh

Club: Hanoi WFC

Age: 22

Height: 1.68m

Joining the ranks of Hanoi WFC at the age of 13, the defender’s height earned her the spot of centre-back in formations. She later became a defensive midfielder, where her control and passing prowess were further developed. Linh soon caught the eye of Coach Chung, who called her up to the World Cup Squad.

No. 11

NAME: Thái Thị Thảo


AGE: 28

HEIGHT: 1.59m

Thị Thảo is the “genius” in the middle of the pitch. She is great at building the play, keeping control of the ball, and breaking defences. Her long-distance finishes are also her special weapon. The former national futsal team member scored a goal in Việt Nam’s 2-0 win over Thailand during the Asian Cup 2022.

No. 12

NAME: Phạm Hải Yến


AGE: 28

HEIGHT: 1.62m

Yến has proven herself to be a goal-scoring machine in local tournaments. That was the case in the 2022 Asian Cup qualifications where she scored a total of eight goals. In the national team, Yến and her captain Huỳnh Như make for the best duo as forwards in the Southeast Asia region.
