HA NOI (VNS) — Midfielder Phan Thanh Hau from Viet Nam's national U19 football team has been named in the list of top 40 young talents in world football, according to the UK's The Guardian newspaper.
"Phan Thanh Hau is the heartbeat of their midfield, always available and ready to spray passes short and long and to use a deft first touch to create space for a lovely left-foot to prise open opposition defences," the newspaper reported.
"He currently plays for an academy in his homeland built by Arsenal JMG Academy and a Vietnamese company. His next move is either to the V-League or Europe."
The 17-year-old Hau is a key player in the U19 team, and performed outstandingly in the final round of the U19 AFC 2014. — VNS
