Luong Nguyen Ngoc Hien, head coach of the VTV Binh Dien Long An women’s volleyball team, was not too surprised with the achievement of Thanh Thuy and her teammates. Instead, Mrs. Hien felt somewhat regretful.
“Vietnamese women’s volleyball now possesses a young, equal and talented generation. Therefore, the team’s recent achievement in the top 4 Asian tournaments is not too surprising to me. Even I have a little regret because we have a chance to go deeper.
Coach Ngoc Hien thinks that the Vietnamese team will be very formidable if they can improve step 1 and exploit the midfield battle well.
Typically, the semi-final against Japan or the 3-4 match against Thailand, the team had the opportunity to win the opponent but failed to take advantage of it. This is partly because they are still young and have not been able to compete in many international competitions, so they still lack courage.
I was impressed with Thanh Thuy, especially in the 36-34 win set against Japan. The set that I evaluated Thanh Thuy played like a bronze. In addition, some of our young factors have also left an impression,” commented Ms. Ngoc Hien.
Besides the praise, the head coach of VTV Binh Dien Long An said that the Vietnamese women’s team needs to improve to become more formidable: “I think the team needs to improve in the first and second stages to exploit better in the first and second stages. midfield battle.

If they can do this, the Vietnamese women’s team will be a formidable opponent to any team. Improving step 1 of the other members will help Thanh Thuy focus on the offensive front, making the team’s scoring ability even more beneficial,” added Ms. Hien.

“Indeed, I was surprised because this is a continental tournament that is still considered extremely difficult for Vietnamese volleyball. While the team has just replaced the coach, it also does not have the strongest force, especially with the absence of the leading pillar, Bich Tuyen. Performance at this tournament is a very convincing and worthy achievement of the team.
Thanh Thuy sets continental level
I regret a little bit about some specific results where the team could have done better. For example, winning Thailand a set in the match for third place. Also, I’m extremely impressed with our historic win set against Japan. This is the best set of the women’s national team for the past 20 years in terms of score, spirit and expertise,” said Viet Cuong.
Journalist Viet Cuong said that Tran Thi Thanh Thuy, Pham Thi Nguyet Anh and Nguyen Thi Xuan were the three names that made the biggest impression on him in this tournament. In particular, Thanh Thuy’s ability to score points is worthy of a continental level.
However, Mr. Viet Cuong said that in addition to improving a lot in terms of expertise, especially in step 1, the Vietnamese team needs to have long-term goals and plans, especially to overcome the situation of seasonal training. What year knows that year, first of all, the position of head coach as it is now.
