They have been even more successful in the SEA Games, winning the gold medal in five of the past seven tournaments, including edging Thailand on goal difference to take first place last year, according to the Asian Football Confederation (AFC).

At the AFC Women’s Asian Cup 2018, Vietnam found the net 27 times to win all four qualifying matches. 

Following a ten-day training camp in Germany, the Vietnamese girls flew to Jordan for the tournament’s finals on April 2. They are scheduled to have a further four days of training in Amman, Jordan. 

The team will face Japan on April 7, Australia on April 10, and the Republic of Korea on April 13.

Coach Mai Duc Chung expressed his confidence in the team and called on them to follow the example of U23 Vietnam, who brought home the silver medal from the AFC U23 Championship last January.-VNA
