Football expert Tran Duy Long and the book.
Through detailed information and photos, football fans can learn the history of football in Vietnam since it was first adopted in the country in northern, central and southern regions, women’s football, its outstanding footballers, regional/continental achievements, and which teams were national champions and who were top scorers as well.
Especially, it is a meticulous and strenuous work, as few teams still keep full documents on their history. The authors have spent a lot of time to compile articles about football in various regions, and meet with older players to collect information for the book.
It was published by the Youth Publishing House./.
