Vietnam, Number One!

VIETNAM | Sunday, 28 December 2008 | Views [310]

Last Sunday night was a big night for in Vietnam’s sporting history. Vietnam’s national football team defeated three-time winners Thailand in the AFF Suzuki Cup. It was a close final with Vietnam only needing a draw to take the trophy (they were one ahead from the first leg in Bangkok). With Vietnam one-down the match looked destined for extra-time until Vietnam put one away in the nick of time. Instantly the whole of Saigon took to the streets waving flags, banging pots and pans and chanting “Vietnam, number one, Vietnam, number one” (only in Vietnamese obviously). The roads came congested with motorbikes doing victory laps and moving anywhere became next to impossible.
