National futsal team head for int'l friendly tournament

The tournament will be hosted by the Football Association of Thailand (FAT) from Sep. 11 to 16 in Bangkok. It will feature six national teams: Iran (sixth in world rankings), Morocco (ninth), Finland (18th), Thailand (20th), Vietnam (40th) and Angola (46th).

Except for Finland, the other teams all participated in 2021 Futsal World Cup, meaning this tournament could be considered a mini World Cup.

Six teams will be divided into two groups, played in a round-robin format. The top two teams per group will advance to the semifinals.

The tournament will be a chance for Vietnam to compete with stronger opponents and experiment with different tactics as part of preparations for the Asian Futsal Championship that will take place from Sep. 25 to Oct. 20 in Kuwait, where the team aim for the quarterfinals.

The national futsal team of Vietnam is expected to start training in early August. Vietnam Football Federation is expected to appoint the new World Cup-winning head coach Diego Giustozzi from Argentina around the same time.
