Infantino and Al-Khalifa showed their appreciation for the recent development of Vietnamese football. They recognized VFF as one of the leading national football federations in Southeast Asia, through cooperation with other big federations in Asia such as the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Japan, and South Korea as well as expanding cooperation with German Football Federation and in the near future, French Football Federation.

Thanks to this approach, Vietnam’s teams are given the opportunity to train and compete in developed football countries, to improve their quality and level, Infantino said.

He expressed interest in cooperative programs with VFF to organize more FIFA events in Vietnam. He is committed to supporting the development of Vietnamese football through FIFA's projects in the coming years, to help Vietnam's national men's football team qualify for the World Cup as soon as possible.
