Vietnamese naturalised striker Hoang Vu Samson has expressed his deeply desire for making Vietnam international debut.
Despite being a Vietnamese citizen since 2013, Samson still has not recieved any Vietnam call-up yet. He should have been picked for Vietnam stand by his scoring abilities alone, not to mention about his contribution for the Vietnamese side Hanoi T&T since joining the club in 2011.
Speaking on the club’s official website, Samson said he did not want to be a Vietnamese by paper, but a man who fights for his proud country. VFF officials are wrong to deny players who are playing their trade at the top level, but not native Vietnamese.
He said: “I want to offer every thing I has to represent for Vietnam one day. It is a desire from my heart. Hoang Vu Samson is Vietnamese. I do not want to be a Vietnamese on paper.”
Samson has played 52 games for Hanoi T&T and scored 42 goals on that amount. That said, he is not only a great addition to the ‘mighty’ Vietnam team that lost to Manchester City 8-1 last month, but also a prove that there are no discrimination policies from the Vietnam Football Federation.
