The Vietnam national football team (Vietnamese: Đội tuyển bóng đá quốc gia Việt Nam) is the national football team representing Vietnam and is managed by the Vietnam Football Federation.

When Vietnam was split into North Vietnam and South Vietnam, two national teams existed; also 2 similar Vietnam Football Association was also created. After two countries unified after the war in 1975, VFA then was renamed to Vietnam Football Federation in 1989. Vietnam team's nickname "Ngôi Sao Vàng" (The Golden Star) isn't often used or isn't used at all by Vietnamese people. Fans and media today normally call the national team "Đội tuyển bóng đá quốc gia Việt Nam", the team has another name, "Đội tuyển túc cầu quốc gia Việt Nam" which was often used in the past, especially in South Vietnam, and the word "túc cầu" (football) is still often used today by many Vietnamese outside of Vietnam.

History

Football was introduced to Vietnam in 1896 by the French. It was first introduced in Cochinchina (Nam Kỳ); it later spread to other part of Vietnam from central to the northern region. Vietnamese slowly learn the game from the French team before creating their own teams. In July 20, 1908, the first Vietnamese football teams with Vietnamese players had their first match where Phú Mỹ team defeated team Chợ Đũi with the score of 2-0 when the news paper “Lục tỉnh Tân văn” (New provincial office record) just came out. Till 1928, Vietnamese had stood out to established An Nam General Department of Sports in Saigon (now Ho Chi Minh City). The same year, Vietnam picked out the best team to compete in their first tournament in Singapore.

Two national teams existed (North Vietnam national football team and South Vietnam national football team) as the country was splite in two between Communist's North Vietnam and the Republic's South Vietnam in 1950s.

North team

The north team wasn't very active and only played against other Communist countries from 1956 to 1966. They had their first match against China PR where they lost 5-3 under head coach Truong Tan Buu. They participated in the first GANEFO competitions at Indonesia in 1962 and Cambodia in 1966.

South team

The South team was known as one of the top 4 teams in Asia. They participated in the very first two AFC Asian Cup finishing 4th both times. They won the very first SEA games in 1959 also known as Southeast Asian Peninsular Games that was hosted in Thailand. They also won Merdeka Cup in 1966. Due to the war in South Vietnam around 1960s-1970s, South Vietnam did not won any other national titles. They played their last game against Malaysia in 1975 where they lost 3-0.

Present team

V-League was formed in 1980 and currently has 14 teams. Petro Vietnam is the current sponsor of the league.

In 1989, following the Đổi mới reforms, a new football federation was formed. Vietnamese sports began to return to international events. After three months of preparation, in August 1989, the First Congress of the new football federation took place in Hanoi, declaring Vietnam Football Federation. Trịnh Ngọc Chữ, deputy minister of General Department of Sports, was elected president of VFF and Lê Thế Thọ was appointed general secretary.

Vietnam national team was created once again and played their first match against the Philippine in 1991 where they had a draw. Vietnam, along with other South East Asian teams participated the first Tiger Cup where they finish third place. Vietnam hosted the second Tiger Cup in 1998 where they were defeated by the unfancied Singapore in the final and it was one of the most shocking news in the competition up to date.

In 2007, Vietnam hosted the AFC Asian Cup for the first time along with Thailand, Indonesia, and Malaysia. They, surprisingly, beat the UAE 2-0 and drew 1-1 with Qatar in group stage. Though they lost 4-1 to Japan, they were still able to go on to quarter-finals and were the only host and only South East Asian team to reach quarter-finals due to Qatar's lost to the UAE. In the quarter final they were defeated to the later champion Iraq.

Exactly 10 years later since 1998 Tiger Cup, in 2008 AFF Suzuki Cup also known as former Tiger Cup or ASEAN Football Championship, Vietnam made another shocking news where they defeated the defending champion Singapore 1-0 away from home in the semi-finals after a goalless draw in Hanoi. They also defeated Thailand 2-1 in the finals away from home. In the final 2nd-leg, Thailand score a equaliser goal to bring the aggregate score of 2-2, but in the 90' min, Vietnam's star Le Cong Vinh score a late header goal from Nguyen Minh Phuong's free kick to get Vietnam its very first title in the region tournament and gave the Vietnamese fans a wonderful Christmas and New Year "gift".

Earlier in 2008, Vietnam U-22 team participated in Merdeka Cup for the second time after South Vietnam in 1966 where they defeated host Malaysia 6-5 on penalty in the final, bringing home another title.
