Vietnam coach ready to fight Thailand assistant over apparent height insult

Park Hang-seo has been a success since taking charge of Vietnam in 2017.

Vietnam coach Park Hang-seo told Thailand assistant Sasa Todic he was ready to fight him following an apparent insult about his height following a World Cup qualifier.

Vietnam crowned Southeast Asia's best, Malaysia defy expectations

Ten years after winning their first AFF Suzuki Cup, Vietnam won a second on Saturday, turning the streets of Hanoi and Saigon red with delight as fans celebrated 3-2 aggregate victory over Malaysia.

In the end, Vietnam were just a little too good for their regional rivals over the two legs. And the same was true in the tournament overall. The Golden Stars were consistently the best team from the beginning -- a 3-0 win over Laos -- to the end, a 1-0 second leg victory over Malaysia.
