Alongside the images, sports journalists Minh Chien and Ngoc Anh added fun facts, descriptions, information and quotes from the sports stars.

“There is no star in the U23 Vietnam football team, the only star we have is on the left side of our chest,” footballer Truong is quoted as saying in the book.

In more than 100 pages, the book revisits the unforgettable moments of the Vietnam team at the AFF Cup 2018 and SEA Games 2019.

“We want to once again honour the footballers and their coach, we also hope that the book will spread positive energy and determination to young readers,” said author Phan Nguyen./
