As for the tournament, I think this is a good opportunity for us to prepare for the Asian tournament ahead. I want to see how my players play, how tactically they play, how each player plays independently, so that I can make the best choices for the players in the next important target”.
In the opening match, Vietnam futsal team plays against Finland, the opponent is considered equally and competes directly for the chance to the semi-finals, meanwhile, the other team in this group is Iran too strong, Mr. Giustozzi Diego Raul said: “About Finland team, I watched and knew how well they played at the recent European Futsal Championship. Vietnam has the advantage of watching the match between Finland and Iran (a strong team in Asia) in the first match, this is an opportunity for us to study their play style. Moreover, with an experienced head coach like Sergio Gargelli, I believe that Finland will be a formidable opponent.”
