Gianni Infantino highly valued football achievements  made by Vietnam in recent time, especially  Vietnam's U20 football team’s presence at the U20 World Cup 2017; Vietnam's futsal team playing in the semi-finals of the 2018 AFC Futsal Championship; and the U23 team’s success as the runner-up at the AFC U23 Championship.

He attributed the results to efforts made by the Vietnamese Government and relevant agencies in promoting the football’s development in general and training young football talents. 

FIFA will continue supporting the FIFA Goal Project in Vietnam by providing financial resources, building of laboratory and high-quality training room, and referee training, thus helping Vietnam complete young football training programmes in particular and promote its football development in general, FIFA President Infantino said. 

He reported that FIFA has selected Vietnam as one of the participants in a pilot project to develop women’s football in 18 months. FIFA will send its experts to Vietnam to help the VFF build a long-term programme for the project, he added. 

He also thanked the Vietnamese Government and people for their support to the country’s football development, expressing his belief that Vietnam’s football will reap more successes in the near future.
