    HANOI, July 11 (Xinhua) -- Vietnam is targeting a place at the 2026 FIFA World Cup, according to a leading official from the Vietnam Football Federation.

    "Vietnam and other countries and regions in Southeast Asia have a great chance to play in the world's biggest football tournament. Besides national senior teams, we will invest in Under-15 and Under-18 footballers to help us earn a place in the tournament," the federation's vice president Tran Quoc Tuan was quoted as saying by the Vietnam News on Thursday.

    The 2026 FIFA World Cup will be held in the United States, Canada and Mexico. This is set to be the first edition of the quadrennial tournament to feature 48 teams, up from the existing 32. The 2026 tournament will feature 16 groups of three teams, meaning that Asia will have seven or eight slots to compete for.

    According to the latest FIFA world rankings released in June, Vietnam is currently Asia's 15th best national team. The country finished runners-up in the 2018 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Under-23 Championship, finished fourth at the 2019 Asian Games, and won the 2018 ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Suzuki Cup.

    Vietnam's U-15 and U-18 teams are currently training in Japan in preparation for the AFF U-15 Championship which opens in Thailand in late July, and the AFF U-18 Championship held in Vietnam in August.

    Which footfall team has the most talented players?
    Hanoi FC?
    Vietnam football teams seem to copy the French: employing many Africans.

    It will be cool to hear the Vietnamese anthem in a World Cup setting one of the best anthems out there

    Vietnam‘s national anthem speaks a very clear language.
    Here a taste

    Verse 2

    Soldiers of Vietnam, armies of Vietnam, forward!

    The gold star fluttering

    Leading the people of our native land out of misery and suffering.

    Let us join our efforts in the fight to build a new life.

    Arise and break these chains.

    For too long have we swallowed our hatred.

    Be ready for all sacrifices and life will be radiant.

    Ceaselessly for the People’s cause, let us struggle,

    Let us hasten to the battlefield!

    Onward! All together advancing!

    For one eternal Vietnam.

    Yes but that’s long ago nobody can remember.

    I can’t remember either which country replaced us instead.

    Let’s move on!

    I think we can beat some of the teams as Jordan, Iran, Irak. Ok at least on youtube :-) Of the top 10 teams with most viewers on youtube are two Vietnamese clubs.

    HAGL at 5th with 9.01 million per month

    Hanoi FC at 10th with 6.04 million views
