HÀ NỘI — The Việt Nam women’s national football team have maintained 35th position in the FIFA world rankings in August.
With tournaments suspended from the beginning of the year, the world women's football team rankings remained the same, with no change compared to the first and second quarters.
Việt Nam are ranked sixth in Asia, one spot above regional rivals Thailand, who are 39th in the world.
Việt Nam lead the Southeast Asian region.
Việt Nam are expected to have many opportunities to qualify for the World Cup 2023. The number of teams in the finals of the tournament in 2023 will be increased to 32 teams from 24. The number of spots for Asia teams also increased to 8.5, instead of just five, giving the Vietnamese a chance to qualify for their first-ever World Cup. — VNS
