Futsal players of Vietnam in a training session

The Argentinian coach has decided to maintain 16 outstanding players among the 23 called for the February gathering and give chances to three new ones basing on their performance.

The team will undergo training at the futsal gymnasium of District 8 in Ho Chi Minh City. A shortlist of 16 players will be announced on May 31.

Their training in South America will start in Paraguay, where the team will have three friendlies with the Paraguayan futsal team on June 4, 6, and 8. In Argentina, they will play against the team of this country on June 10, 12, and 14.

Paraguay currently rank ninth in the world’s futsal rankings while Argentina are at the fourth place and also won the 2016 FIFA Futsal World Cup.

The matches with high-level rivals will generate considerable benefits for the Vietnamese futsal team, the VFF noted, adding that it is also a result of the VFF’s efforts to help the team make the best preparations for the 2024 AFC Futsal Asian Cup qualifiers, set to kick off this October.
