Vietnam was recently chosen to be part of a project of the world football governing body. The country will join an 18-month programme to develop youth football as well as tournaments for them.
According to Wilson, Vietnamese footballers under 12 years old are at an ideal age to train.
FIFA will design training programmes for each member federation, she said, adding that the VFF has good infrastructure for young players to develop.
She hailed the development potential of Vietnamese female football with some young squads gaining success at continental tournaments.
She hoped the Vietnamese women’s football team will succeed at the AFC Women’s Asian Cup 2018 in Jordan to qualify for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France.
During her five-day stay, Wilson will visit the national youth football centre and watch the teams’ practices and friendly matches. She will work with the Vietnam Football Federation managers as well as heads of concerned departments to develop a suitable strategy for Vietnam.
In recent years, Vietnam have attracted the attention of FIFA authorities with their remarkable progress, such as winning the champion’s title at the biennial SEA Games, winning a berth in the Asian Cup and securing No 32 position in world ranking.-VNA
