Hanoi (VNA) - The Vietnamese women’s futsal team arrived in Japan on July 24 for training ahead of the upcoming SEA Games.

Coach Truong Quoc Tuan and 18 players will stay in Kawaguchi City for one week.

As part of their preparations they will play three friendly matches against local clubs. They play Fuchu Athletic Promeira on July 26, Estrela Novo on July 27 and Fugador Ladies one day later.

“In general, my players have improved a lot in term of skills and physique. They deeply understand our tactics and carry them out well in competitions,” said Tuan about his team after several weeks together.

The team will return HCM City on July 30 and will have 10 days to sharpen their skills before leaving for the Malaysian Games.
