Vo Van Thanh, a journalist based in Hanoi South Korean President Moon Jae-in uploaded a congratulatory message to Vietnam’s national men’s soccer team on his Facebook page on Monday, just two days after they beat Malaysia to win the AFF Suzuki Cup 2018. You can see that his PR team has certainly been working hard: the message was written in Vietnamese as well.

Journalist Truong Anh Ngoc We’ve been talking a lot about Vietnamese football players, given all the improvement they showed so far at the U23 Asian Cup in January and then the Asian Games in August. Now with the ongoing AFF Cup 2018, the talk about our players continues. But not enough time is spent on the 12th player, Vietnamese supporters, who are a significant part of the team's strength with a "competitive attitude" that rubs off on the team. In early 2009, I watched a Serie A match between Roma and Milan in Italy. Audiences had been warned that the game could get "quite dangerous," that clashes could break out between supporters of the two teams. That day at the Olimpico stadium, an empty stand audience was arranged between two stands filled with supporters of the two teams. I sat in one of the two stands, observing the match in a tense atmosphere that had been described by the media as a "deadly specialty" of Italian football: scuffles among fans and smoking flares all … [Read more...] about Vietnamese football: Fans are important, but they should’t fan flames
