Hanoi (VNA) - Vietnam’s goalkeeper Tran Nguyen Manh has been fined a hefty 1,000 USD by the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) after he got a red card at the recent ASEAN Football Federation Cup.

Manh was sent off in the 75th minute of the semi-final match against Indonesia after he trampled on player Bayu Pradana last month.

Vietnam lost the match and was eliminated from the tournament.

AFC said it was a non-sporting behaviour.

As a result, Manh cannot take part in the 2019 Asian Cup. He will not be attending the national team’s training course to prepare for the competition, which begins in March.
