local player among top 60 best young talents in world football picture 1
Le Dinh Long Vu is named among top 60 best young talents in world football.

Vu is the only Southeast Asian representative to feature in the list.

According to the newspaper, Vietnam are blessed with several players who are both technical and fast and who are equally comfortable playing the ball with either foot, but Le Dinh Long Vu has already excited fans with his potential.

“He impressed so much at Asia’s Under-17 Championship that he was called up to the country’s under-23 team. His pace, slight build, dribbling and ability to whip balls into the area has led some fans to compare him to Phil Foden,” reported The Guardian.

It also stressed that young Vietnamese talents don’t always progress as much as they should, but with the right coaching and by playing for the right club, Vu could go very far in the sport.

Born in the central province of Ha Tinh, Vu plays as a winger. The Vietnamese player is currently playing for Song Lam Nghe An FC and has already represented Vietnam’s U17 and U23 teams.
