In a recent interview granted to Vietnamese media on the occasion of Argentina winning the World Cup in 2022, the Ambassador spoke highly of the potential for cooperation between the two countries in a number of sports, expressing a hope that an Argentine football team can be arranged to play friendly matches in Vietnam for experience exchange in the coming time.
However, support of the Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) and the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism will be needed to realize this idea, he said, adding that he will ask for meetings with relevant Vietnamese authorities to discuss this issue.
The Ambassador expressed his pride when the VFF has signed a contract with Argentine coach Diego Raul Giustozzi to lead the Vietnamese national futsal team.
Referring to the 2022 World Cup final between Argentina and France, Ambassador Beltramino said this was an attractive and dramatic match that brought a lot of emotions to the audience.
After 36 years of waiting, Argentina once again reached World Cup glory, he said.
According to the Ambassador, the impressive victory of the Argentina team sends a message on the strength of solidarity and all-out efforts of a team to overcome difficulties and challenges to make their dream come true.
