The Ho Chi Minh City Football Federation on May 10 brought out a book that highlights major events in the history of the establishment and development of national football.

The book, “Historic landmarks during 100 years of Vietnamese football”, is written by writer Nguyen Quang Sang in coordination with football expert Tran Duy Long and other journalists including Ho Nguyen (Saigon Giai Phong), Sy Huyen (Tuoi Tre), Nguyen Nguyen (Phap Luat Thanh Pho Ho Chi Minh) and poet Thanh Thao.

Published by Youth Publishing House, the 448-page book is a meticulous and strenuous work, as few teams still keep full documents on their history. To collect information for the book, the authors have spared no efforts to compile articles about football in various regions, and meet with older players.

Information and photos presented in the book will give readers a vivid picture of Vietnamese football during the past century.-VNA
