Vietnam lost 0-9 to Spain in their last warm-up game ahead of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup on Friday morning at McLennan Park in Auckland, New Zealand.

Alba Redondo and Althenea Castillo scored to give Spain a 2-0 lead before half-time.

World No. 6 Spain continued to dominate the game and netted seven more goals in the second half, with Hermoso Fuentes, Gonzalez Rodriguez, and Salma Celeste each scoring a brace.

This is a major defeat for the Vietnamese women’s team in preparation for the upcoming FIFA Women’s World Cup, co-hosted by New Zealand and Australia and scheduled to take place from July 20 to August 20.
