HA NOI (VNS) — V-League's former champions Song Lam Nghe An have signed on their second foreign player for the new season.

Edouard Ndjodo, a Cameroon striker, is said to be an experienced player who has previously played in Austria, Hungary and Greece.

The 29-year-old has an ideal height of 1.91m, which is believed to be an important asset in playing high balls.

Earlier, his countryman Biyaga Paul Emile joined Nghe An under a one-year contract. The 26-year-old former national team forward played for Haras El-Hodood SC, the best club in Egypt, before moving to Viet Nam. He was a member of Cameroon's U23 and wore the national jersey in four matches.

The two sportsmen travelled with the whole team on Wednesday to Quang Ninh Province in preparation for their V-League's opening round match against host Quang Ninh Coal tomorrow. – VNS
