Reigning champions SLNA demonstrated superior power by prompting to an early lead thanks to Vuong Van Tung’s successful freekick in the 16th minute.

Shortly after, the advantage was doubled for the host team with forward Tran Quoc Hoa shooting past the Hai Duong keeper to net his seventh goal in the tournament.

Shortly before the break, Vuong Quoc Dung managed to get on the scoresheet to gift SLNA a 3-0 lead going into halftime.

In the second half, Haduwaco Hai Duong still could not improve the situation, while SLNA comfortably deployed attacks in seek of additional goals. Their efforts finally paid off with a fourth goal by defender Tran Cong Dat.

This is the third consecutive time, and the eighth in history, that SLNA have taken the top honour in the national U13 tournament. Previously, the team claimed the title in 1997, 1998, 2003, 2013, 2014, 2018 and 2019.

In addition to the crown, SLNA pocketed three individual prizes, with forward Tran Quoc Hoa named as the most valuable player and the top scorer (10 goals) of the tournament and goalie Nguyen Bao Ngoc voted as the best keeper. NDO

Vietnam not to join French football tournament

Published

The Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) has refused to allow the U22 team to take part in the Toulon Tournament in France.

The Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) has refused to allow the U22 team to take part in the Toulon Tournament in France.

The tournament is scheduled to be held in Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, France from December 23 to January 7 next year.

The U22 team  

Earlier, VFF agreed to send the U22 team to France to attend the friendly tournament at the invitation of the French Football Federation. Coach Park Hang-seo has the right to lead the team to the tournament or give it to his assistants.

However, to date, the Covid-19 pandemic in many countries in the world has remained complicated, so the cancellation is aimed to ensure safety for the team.

Instead, the squad and Coach Park Hang Seo will gather for domestic training to prepare for coming tournaments, including the qualifying round of the 2021 AFC U23 Championship and 2021 Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games 31).

The Toulon Tournament is considered a miniature World Cup for young teams and the likes of France’s Thierry Henry, Portugal’s Manuel Rui Costa and England’s Alan Shearer have all played there in the past.

The 12 teams will be divided into three groups, competing in a round-robin format to choose three group winners and the best second-placed team to enter the semi-finals.

Previously, the tournament was expected to take place in June but due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it was delayed until the end of the year. Dtinews

All the oil paintings were created by artist Tran The Vinh, a graduate of Hue Fine Arts University.

The portraits feature late composers Van Cao and Trinh Cong Son, and late poets Bui Giang and Hoang Cam, and Vinh’s teacher, artist Vinh Phoi.

The collection also highlights Vietnam’s top intellectuals such as philosopher Tran Duc Thao, writer and linguist Nguyen Hien Le, scholar Phan Khoi, and journalist Nguyen Huu Dang.

The 34-year-old artist spent two years (2018-19) completing his collection.

“I admire the artists’ lives and careers. Apart from my teacher, artist Vinh Phoi, I had never met other artists. I learned about them through their works and documents, and used my admiration and feeling to create their portraits,” Vinh said.

All of the portraits are featured in a photo book titled Vong (Amiration), released on October 22 by the Writers’ Association Publishing House.

The 116-page book includes Vinh’s descriptions of the artists.

Vinh, a native of Quang Tri Province, took part in several group exhibitions in Hue from 2005-2010. 

In 2010, he moved to HCM City and his works were presented several times at Tu Do Gallery.

He began creating portraits from 2013 and won the special prize from the 2013 Dogma Prize, an art award for self-portraits, in the same year.

In 2016, Vinh introduced his solo exhibition Bắt Đầu Từ Đâu (Where I Started) featuring portraits of himself.

The exhibition will close on November 1. The venue is at 1 Ngo Thoi Nhiem Street in District 3.  VNS
