The Vietnam national football team (Vietnamese: Đội tuyển bóng đá quốc gia Việt Nam) is the national football team representing Vietnam in international football competitions and is managed by the Vietnam Football Federation (VFF).

During the late 1950s, known by the name South Vietnam national football team. It was one of the four teams in Asia to advance into the final round of 1956 AFC Asian Cup, 1960 AFC Asian Cup, finishing fourth both times. The team also won 10th Merdeka Tournament in Malaysia, 1966. While Vietnam was split into North and South Vietnam, two national teams existed and both were controlled by similar Vietnam Football Associations. After the two countries unified in 1976, the Vietnam Football Associations was renamed to VFF. FIFA considers Vietnam as the successor of South Vietnam team, despite the communist government of Vietnam continues to reject South Vietnam's historical legitimacy.

History[edit]

Early history[edit]

The introduction of football into Vietnam traced its roots in 1896 during the era of colonial French Cochinchina (Vietnamese: Nam Kỳ). At the early stage, the sport are only played among French civil servants, merchants and soldiers. The French then encouraged local Vietnamese to played football and several other sports that were introduced to them to divert their interest from politics which resulting the sport being spread to other regions, mostly the northern and central region.[7] On 20 July 1908, the newspaper Southern Luc Tan Van reported the match between two local Vietnamese teams for the first time. A first football guidebook then published in 1925 by a local Vietnamese doctor named Pham Van Tiec to attract the interest among Vietnamese youngsters.[8] By 1928, the Vietnamese had established the Annamite Sports Bureau and in the same year they sent a Vietnamese football team to compete in Singapore. More local football clubs then established in both northern and southern Vietnam although it was not until after the World War II that football clubs in the region started to become more organised.[9] It was the time Vietnam played their first ever international match, against Korea in Saigon which they lost 2–4.

Two Vietnams era[edit]

Two national football teams then existed when Vietnam was divided into South Vietnam and North Vietnam. The team from the South participated in the first two AFC Asian Cup finals (1956 AFC Asian Cup and 1960 AFC Asian Cup) and finished in fourth place both times. They won the first Southeast Asian Games in 1959 in Thailand. The team also entered qualification for the 1974 FIFA World Cup, beating Thailand 1–0 to qualify the classification matches before losing their group opening matches by 0–4 to Japan and 0–1 to Hong Kong. The team played their last game against Malaysia in 1975 where they lost 0–3. Meanwhile, the team from the North was less active, not being a member of either AFC and FIFA, often playing against other Communist states between 1956 and 1966. They had their first match against China PR where they lost 3–5 under head coach Truong Tan Buu. They participated in the first GANEFO (Games of the New Emerging Forces) competitions at Indonesia in 1962 and Cambodia in 1966. Both team ceased to exist when the North and South regions were combined together into the Socialist Republic of Vietnam following the end of the Vietnam War, but North Vietnam remained not a member of AFC and FIFA before 1975.[10] Due to South Vietnam was a member of FIFA, the later unified Vietnam team is classified as successor of South Vietnam by FIFA.

Post Vietnam War and redevelopment era[edit]

Vietnamese professional football league known as the All Vietnam Football Championship was launched in 1980 to redevelop Vietnamese football after a long period of civil war. In 1989, following the Đổi Mới reforms, a new football federation was formed. Vietnamese sports began to return to international events. After three months of preparation, in August 1989, the First Congress of the new football federation took place in Hanoi, declaring the formation of Vietnam Football Federation (VFF). Trịnh Ngọc Chữ, deputy minister of General Department of Sports, was elected president of VFF and Lê Thế Thọ was appointed as the vice-president.[12][13] The reunified Vietnam national football team then played their first match against the Philippines in 1991 where they had a draw.[14] In 1996, along with other Southeast Asian teams, Vietnam participated in the first Tiger Cup where they finished in third place. Vietnam hosted the second Tiger Cup in 1998 where they lose 0–1 to Singapore in the final.

2007 AFC Asian Cup co-host and revival[edit]

Vietnam hosted the 2007 AFC Asian Cup for the first time along with Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand. Being ranked as weaker and only above Malaysia in the tournament, while before the tournament was considered to be ranked bottom in group B which contained Japan (then-Asian champion and leading Asian team in FIFA), then-Gulf champions the UAE and Qatar with the squad mostly made up from the players that won 2006 ASIAD football, all effectively made Vietnam to face off over three champions on the same group. In such a group, Vietnam managed to beat UAE 2–0 and then drew 1–1 with another Gulf team, Qatar.[15] Even though they lost 1–4 to Japan, they were able to go on to quarter-finals and were the only host and only Southeast Asian team to reach quarter-finals. In the quarterfinals, they were defeated by the latter champion Iraq 0–2, nevertheless this remains as one of the best performance ever in Vietnamese football history since 1975.[16]

2008 AFF Championship[edit]

In the 2008 AFF Championship (which is a successor tournament of the Tiger Cup), Vietnam were held in Group B together with Thailand, Malaysia and Laos. After losing 0–2 in their first match against Thailand, the Vietnamese team bounced back and defeated Malaysia 3–2 before a 4–0 victory against Laos.[17] In the semi-finals, Vietnam hold the defending champion Singapore by 0–0 in a home match before winning 1–0 in an away match.[17] In the finals, they meet Thailand again and finally managed to defeat them by 2–1 in an away match before drawing 1–1 in a home match by a late score from Lê Công Vinh through a free-kick by Nguyễn Minh Phương, thus winning the tournament with an aggregate of 3–2.[17][18]

2009–present[edit]

Vietnam had continued its participation to seek the quests to become champions twice at the regional AFF Championship and to gain tickets entering the AFC Asian Cup and neither efforts was successful. During 2019 AFC Asian Cup qualification, Vietnam, after managed two draws against Afghanistan and Jordan, had repeatedly defeated its neighbour, Cambodia, both away and home matches. On 14 November 2017, after another draw against Afghanistan, Vietnam qualified to the AFC Asian Cup for the fourth time in its history.

2018 AFF Championship[edit]

In the 2018 AFF Championship, Vietnam were held in Group A together with Malaysia, Myanmar, Cambodia and Laos. They start their campaign smoothly by beating Laos and Malaysia by 3–0 and 2–0 respectively before drawing 0–0 with Myanmar as well defeating Cambodia by 3–0.[21] In the semi-finals, Vietnam beating the Philippines twice by 2–1 both in away and home matches thus successfully entering the AFF finals for the third time in their history in the tournament.[22][23] In the finals, they meet Malaysia again in an away match and drawing 2–2 before surpassing them by 1–0 in a home match from a score by Nguyễn Anh Đức that were received from the ball passing by Nguyễn Quang Hải in the early 6th minute, giving them a victory in the tournament with an aggregate of 3–2.[24][25]
