Born in Taiping on April 12, 2000, Nham Manh Dung currently plays for Viettel Club. When he was still wearing the U17 Viettel jersey, Nham Manh Dung was considered a talented striker for the title of top scorer in the 2017 National U17 Finals. But at the 2020 National U21 Championships, Viettel U21 coach Thach Bao Khanh let his players surprise their opponents when he kept swapping Manh Dung’s places. That’s one of the factors that helped the Army win the championship.

“Nham Manh Dung has the ideal height for a vertical position. Also, he has a great mentality and can get the job done no matter what position he is in. Dung’s advantage is always knowing where he is.” – Coach Thach Bao Khanh commented on his student Manh Dung during the game 2 years ago.

Nham Manh Dung, who is 1.81 meters tall, was noticed by coach Park Hengrui and was called up to Vietnam U23 from 2020. However, Viettel’s players are mostly used at left-back. Before the start of the 31st SEA Games, Liu Guangrong was absent due to injury. Hence, Manh Dung’s role is enhanced as he is one of the few left-footed players who can play at centre back. But head coach Park Hengrui “locked” Meng Yong in the forward position, surprising the fans again.

The South Korean strategist is right. Manh Dung proved his bravery in his first match against Indonesia U23s. He was the one who opened the curtain for Tian Ling in the 54th minute, kicking off the 3-0 victory of the Vietnam U23 team.

Two weeks later, the name Nham Manh Dung was mentioned again. This time, he became a hero with his header and led the Vietnam U23 team to win the men’s football championship of the 31st SEA Games.
