Tuyet Dung, Huynh Nhu to lead Vietnam's debut campaign
Hanoi: Vietnam head coach Mai Duc Chung has finalised his squad of 23 players for the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia & New Zealand 2023, their first ever appearance at the Finals.
Duc Chung will be counting on the presence of two long-serving stalwarts of Vietnam women’s football in midfielder Nguyen Thi Tuyet Dung and record goalscorer forward Huynh Nhu to lead the team in their Group E challenge.
Sydney: Australia head coach Tony Gustavsson has selected Lydia Williams and Clare Polkinghorne as well as injured duo Kyah Simon and Alanna Kennedy in his 23-player squad for the Matildas’ co-hosting of the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia & New Zealand 2023 later this month.
Williams and Polkinghorne have become the first Australian players – male or female – to be selected for a fifth FIFA World Cup while Chelsea striker Sam Kerr will captain the team at what will be her fourth Finals.
