VN women's football team welcomed home after securing World Cup berth

Coach Mai Duc Chung and his players were warmly welcomed at Hanoi's Noi Bai International Airport this morning after earning historic 2023 World Cup berth at the 2022 AFC Women’s Asian Cup held in India.

The team sealed two play-off victories over Thailand and Chinese Taipei in India, thereby booking a spot at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup for the very first time.

They left Mumbai (India) at 4 a.m. on February 10 and arrived in Hanoi at 9:45 a.m. on the same day. They had concluded a 60-day long journey which ended up earning a World Cup place for the first time in history.

Chung and his players burst with joy because, with many players infected the SARS-CoV-2 virus several days before the start of the 2022 AFC Women's Asian Cup in India, they did not think they could seal the last World Cup ticket at the regional tournament to play in Australia and New Zealand next year.

Fortunately, all infected players had recovered in time for the Asian Cup and performed well against their Thailand and Taipei opponents in the two playoff matches, therefore finishing fifth at the tournament and winning the last ticket to World Cup finals to co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand.

Coach Mai Duc Chung and his students are happy upon returning home after beating Thailand 2-0 and Chinese Taipei 2-1 on February 2 and 6 in a play-off round of the 2022 AFC Women's Asian Cup, securing a berth in the FIFA Women's World Cup 2023 for the first time.

President Nguyen Xuan Phuc has signed a decision to present the Labour Order to the team and some outstanding individuals including coach Mai Duc Chung in recognition of their outstanding performance at the 2022 AFC Women's Asian Cup.
