During the recent 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup, held in New Zealand and Australia, the Vietnamese national women’s team, led by Nhu, faced consecutive defeats in all three group-stage matches, failing to score any goals.
Their unwavering determination earned them admiration both domestically and internationally.
