Việt Nam to compete in U17 Jenesys 2018
Việt Nam’s U17 football team will compete in the Jenesys 2018 international tournament from October 3-10 in J-Village, Fukushima, Japan.
The team, led by head coach Đinh Thế Nam, will play alongside other U17 teams from Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and the host, Japan.
The event is a youth sport exchange programme with the aim of promoting mutual understanding between Japan and Asian-Pacific countries. The programme aims to provide a good chance for young players to gain playing experience in preparation for key upcoming tournaments.
Coach Nam highly appreciated the significance of the tournament for Vietnamese U17 players, who received great assistance from the Việt Nam Football Federation (VFF) ahead of the 2019 AFF U18 Youth Championship and the 2020 AFC U19 Championship qualification.
At present, the Việt Nam squad are training at the Promotion Fund for Vietnamese Football Talent (PVF) Football Training Centre in the northern province of Hưng Yên to prepare for the upcoming international event.
