Among them, three are male -- Nguyễn Hiền Triết, Phạm Mạnh Long and Nguyễn Trung Hậu -- and one is a female -- Trương Thị Lệ Trinh.
They will be able to work at the upcoming continental tournaments as referee assistants and table referees.
In the time to come, Triết will work in a match, which is considered a test to become an Elite main referee.
Currently, Việt Nam has 14 officials who hold FIFA certificates.
