HÀ NỘI — Kim Đồng Publishing House has released a comic book entitled Golden Star Warriors, featuring Vietnamese footballers and coach Park Hang-seo.

Painter Phan Nguyễn has portrayed coach Park, his assistant Lee Young-Jin, goalkeeper Đặng Văn Lâm and footballers Đỗ Hùng Dũng, Đặng Văn Hậu, Quang Hải and Lương Xuân Trường.

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

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

In more than 100 pages, the book revisits the unforgettable moments of the Việt Nam 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 Nguyễn. — VNS
