Dung is the most outstanding futsal umpire in the country at present, according to the Vietnam Football Federation.
Dung, 33, was recognised as a FIFA-level referee in 2009 and he is the only Vietnamese referee attending big tournaments in the ASEAN and Asia region.
“Refereeing at a world event is a great honour for me in particular and for Vietnam futsal referees in general. Facing world-level teams will help me have more driving force to overcome challenges,” said Dung.
He also said that Vietnam’s achievement of gaining a ticket to compete in the coming FIFA event helps Vietnamese referees have more chances to improve themselves.
Vietnam are in Group C with Paraguay, Italy and Guatemala in Word Cup in Colombia.
