According to the Vietnam Football Federation yesterday, the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) has assigned two Vietnamese referees, Duong Van Hien and Vo Minh Tri, to be officiates at the AFC Asia Cup 2007.
Vo Minh Tri will go to India on Sunday, March 18, to officiate on March 21, while Duong Van Hien will arrive in Malaysia on April 8 to officiate football matches on April 11.
This is the third time that the AFC has appointed Viet Nam’s referees to officiate abroad since the match-fixing scandal at the 2005 Southeast Asian Games. The first time came when Duong Van Hien was assigned to officiate during the 2007 AFF Cup in Singapore.
