Hanoi (VNA) - Hanoi Football Club will compete in the Gothia World Youth Cup 2017 from July 16-22 in Gothenburg, Sweden.

The team of U13 players will be led by coaches Do Thi Ngoc Cham and Radouane Fuolier of France.

“I think that Gothia Cup is very interesting. This event will give my footballers a chance to play with players at the same age group all over the world. I hope that the Vietnamese teenager team will have nice days in Sweden,” said Cham.

The Cup is one of the best-known youth football tournaments in the world. 1600 teams and more than 70 countries participate in the event every year, which also makes it the world’s most diverse international tournament.

The team will stay in a school in Gothenburg throughout the tournament.
