HÀ NỘI Việt Nam's women's football team have scheduled a number of friendly matches to prepare for the upcoming Southeast Asian (SEA) Games 30.
Their first game will be against a team representing the Australian Embassy on Wednesday. They will then face India twice in Hà Nội on November 3 and 6.
The team beat a US Embassy team 7-2 over the weekend at the Youth Football Training Centre in Hà Nội.
“We've been working on strength in the northern province of Quảng Ninh, and the team is a lot stronger so I feel secure. We will look at the friendlies and decide on a starting line-up for the SEA Games,” said head coach Mai Đức Chung.
Following the warm-up games, the squad will fly to Japan for a 10-day training camp where they will compete in three more matches.
At the SEA Games in the Philippines later this year, Việt Nam have been drawn in Group B along with Thailand and Indonesia. The Philippines, Myanmar and Malaysia make up Group A. VNS
