The national women's team will have five friendly matches ahead of the AFF Cup 2013, including two games with Korean teams.
The team will be convened at the Vietnam Youth Football Training Center in Hanoi from August 1, with 24 players, including the players who were absent in the Asian Cup qualifier like Lai Thi Tuyet (Ha Nam), Nguyen Thi Tuyet Mai (HCM City), Tran Thi Hong Nhung (Ha Nam), Tran Thi Hong Linh (HCM City), Le Thu Thanh Huong (Ha Nam) and Nguyen Thi Nga (Ha Noi).
The young players who did not perform well at the Asian Cup qualifier, including Vu Thi Nhung (Thai Nguyen), Do Thi Nguyen (Ha Nam), Bui Thi Lan ( Ha Noi), Vu Thi Ngan (Vinacomin) and Nguyen Huong Giang (Thai Nguyen) will not be called up to the national team this time.
Just a day after the group-up, the team will go to Da Lat (Lam Dong) for a training course until August 14. On August 15, the team will return to the Vietnam Youth Football Training Center to prepare for the trip to South Korea.
