A qualified engineer has become a media sensation in Vietnam, following his publicized “application” for a place in the Vietnam national team squad, according to local newspapers.
Pham Quang Anh Vu, the engineer in question, arrived at Thong Nhat Stadium, Ho Chi Minh City – where the national team gathered to train – to hand in his application form. Vu said he has been playing in amateur leagues for a few years, and his style of play is similar to that of the team.
The Golden Stars’ coach Nguyen Huu Thang said he is excited to see an amateur player “applied” for the team, and will review his case.
“He has confidence in him, despite the fact that he’s an amateur player. Playing for the national team is a great privilege for anyone”, the coach told local newspapers.
