Nguyễn Quang Hải (born 12 April 1997 in Đông Anh, Hanoi) is a Vietnamese professional footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for Hà Nội F.C and Vietnam national football team. In 2018, he was voted by a panel of sports journalists and football experts as among the top 15 of Best Footballer in Asia.
On 13 June 2017, Quang Hải made his international debut for the Vietnam senior team, against Jordan, in a match that ended in a 0–0 draw. He scored his first senior goal for Vietnam against Cambodia on 5 September 2017.
He became popular during the 2018 AFC U-23 Championship, as he was instrumental in leading U-23 Vietnam to their first ever final in the history of Vietnam in any AFC tournaments. During the tournament, he scored five goals, and the goal in the final under heavy snow against Uzbekistan had been voted as the best goal of the tournament. It was the performance in the U-23 Championship held in China that made him a newly-discovered talent of Vietnamese and Asian football.
Quang Hải gained international reputation in 2019 AFC Asian Cup when he played an instrumental part on Vietnam's amazing run in the tournament, including a stunning free kick goal against Yemen as Vietnam won 2–0. He was also nominated to be one of ten best U-21 players in the tournament.
