By the year 2030 I personally believe that Vietnam will annualy be a top 50 world football team, and by the year 2050 they will be a world football powerhouse. I DO BELIEVE THAT IN 2050 VIETNAM COULD VERY POSSIBLY WIN THE WORLD CUP. YEAH I SAID IT! Am I crazy? Very well may be.
Year by year Vietnamese people are pouring into the streets (di bao) to celebrate Asia Cup wins. Imagine what they do if they ever won? Imagine if they ever qualified for the World Cup? The whole country would erupt. And that is why I feel that in a decade by 2030, Vietnam will be in the top 50 world rankings annualy and as long as they continue on an upward trend, by 2050 they will be an international football powerhouse.
The Vietnam government has pledged to invest in sport and as long as this continues and the budget grows, Vietnam will be able to train the best footballers at a very early age like some of the current world powerhouses. If the facilities and budget grows, with an already lion’s heart mentality with the country behind them, the Vietnam National Football Team will be a force to be reckoned with, there is no denying that at all.
I guess it is wishful thinking but I see the love for the game from all the locals, there is not anything quite like it. It is a spectacle to behold. Di bao has even become popular with expats, foreigners and tourists alike. As long as this continues parallel with the budget and training facilities, there is no stopping Vietnam. I honestly belive that before I die I will witness one World Cup qualifying and most likely a World Cup Trophy!
What do you guys think? Do you think I have lost my mind with my predictions? Is it because I am cought in the moment or is there a real possibility of all this happening? I definitely belive by 2030 Vietnam will be a top 50 football team. Let me know how you feel!
