The Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) announced today (April 14) that the match between SHB Da Nang and SLNA in the 14th round of the V-League will be delayed as most players of the former have been hospitalized due to food poisoning.

In the hour-long meeting, SHB Da Nang said they cannot play the game since 11 footballers have been hospitalized, a reason which was accepted by their rival SLNA, though they have issued more than 10,000 tickets for the match.
“The two clubs will be arranged to challenge each other in the most suitable time,” said VFF deputy chairman Pham Ngoc Vien.
11/20 players affected
More than half of the members of SHB Da Nang were on Friday admitted to the Cua Dong general hospital in Nghe An’s Vinh City in critical condition of repeated vomiting and bowel movements, after they had a lunch at an eatery en route from Da Nang to Nghe An for the game today.
“The players have gotten food poisoning,” confirmed the hospital chairman Nguyen Xuan Kien.
“Most of the Vietnamese players had uncooked vegetables and shrimp paste during their lunch on April 11 at an eatery in Quang Binh’s Le Thuy District,” said the medical official of the football club.
“When the squad arrived at Giao Te hotel, some of the footballers developed stomachache. On the morning of April 13, 11 players suffered poisoning altogether.”
“Thanh Hung, Van Thach, and Tran Minh Phuong were the first to developed fever, and repeated vomiting and bowel movements,” said captain Nguyen Minh Phuong to Tuoi Tre.
“Several others fell into a similar condition after their training session on the afternoon of April 12,” he said.
“A day later, ten footballers and the language coach were hospitalized since the club’s doctors failed to help.”
The 11 poisoned footballers include Nguyen Minh Phuong, Tran Minh Phuong, The Sang, Van Hung, Ngoc Linh, Canh Lam, Ngoc Thanh, Quoc Loc, Van Thanh, Nguyen Ngoc, and Doan Hoang Son.
Captain Minh Phuong, who was discharged last night with Van Thach and Ngoc Linh, told Tuoi Tre that they have yet to fully recover.
“We still cannot get rid of the repeated bowel movements,” said Phuong.
“We are happy to learn of the match delaying.”
As of 11am today, the last seven players, including Ngoc Thanh, Canh Lam, Ngoc Nguyen, Hung Son, The Sang, Quoc Loc, and Tran Minh Phuong, were also discharged from the hospital.
The whole squad left Nghe An today for Da Nang.
