The Vietnamese top-flight game between Ho Chi Minh City and Long An came to a surreal conclusion on Sunday evening when the away side simply refused to play for the final few minutes.

With the score level at 2-2 and the game entering its final stages, Ho Chi Minh were awarded a dubious penalty which looked about as soft as they come.

In protest, Long An simply downed tools, with ‘keeper Nguyen Minh Nhut even turning his back as the spot-kick was converted…

The farcical scenes then continued from the restart as Long An continued their mass sulk.

Indeed, Ho Chi Minh walked in another two unobstructed goals before the referee brought the match to an end in the 93rd minute with the score 5-2.

For the record, Long An are currently bottom of the V-League, which is where they’re more than likely to stay if they continue this kind of thing.
