 with a ticket to the World Cup 2023

This is far different from the Vietnamese men’s team, because even though they also lost to strong opponents in the third qualifying round of the 2022 World Cup, the material athletes were constantly “exploding”, making many people feel sorry for him. Coach Mai Duc Chung.

But losing to male colleagues is still a “daily affair in the district” for the golden girls of Vietnamese football over the years, so there is no need to tell.
