The young players, under coach Nguyen Quoc Trung, will join other coaches and their teams from around the world at the annual event from May 28 to June 2.

During the programme, coaches will lead training sessions and attend master classes from specialists. They will exchange experiences, develop professional skills and learn how to fulfill their students’ potential. Meanwhile the young footballers will have their interest in a healthy football lifestyle nurtured and be taught basic human values such as friendship, equality, fairness and honour.
