An absolutely fantastic weekend of footy in Lao has drawn to a close. The Lao Elephants may have the wood over us at the Asian Champs but, elsewhere, it’s a different story.
Yesterday the Vietnam Swans were victorious booting 14.9.93 to 5.4. 34 at Dong Dok Soccer Stadium, Vientiane University. The Elephants are great marketers and following a back page article in the Vientiane Times, complete with colour photo, 100 spectators came out for the match.
Snakes was voted by the Swans as being Lao’s best player and for the Swannies, the Elephants voted Danny Armstrong as our best after his awesome 6 goal haul.
Dave “Angry” Hadley, who also played an outstanding game will prepare the match report shortly – with photos.
Thanks very much to the Lao Elephants for being such fantastic hosts. A great weekend.
Footnote: Today, on Micky J’s flight back from Vientiane to Hanoi, he spoke to a couple who had read about our match in the Vientiane Times. They wanted to buy a Swannies t-shirt, but alas, no shirts at the moment. However, new shirts are coming…
