thuy tien & le cong vinh

Mmmmm, is that love we smell brewing in this fresh summer air?

Miss Vpop diva, Thuy Tien, have once again been spotted with the famous Vietnamese footballer Cong Vinh, this time at the recent game of T&T Hanoi vs Dong Tam.  Since Cong Vinh, who is currently a striker for T&T Hanoi, had received three yellow cards, he was banned for the game.  Usually, in these situations, Cong Vinh can be seen at Hang Day stadium in the VIP box, but today, he was seen with Thuy Tien in a very quiet section near the back of stadium.  At the end of the game, the two even came down to congratulate the coach.  The two has worked together in a series of ads and was also seen together at the Golden Soccer Ball Ceremony in 2008.

So far, we have seen/heard mixed signals from Thuy Tien.  On one hand, pictures of the two, together in photo shoots, were posted on Thuy Tien’s blog and Thuy Tien seemed to be very friendly with Cong Vinh’s little sister, Khanh Chi. On other hand, she has denied having a one-sided love for Cong Vinh after an article about her and Cong Vinh was published in 2! Magazine. Also in the same article, she admitted to have once “loved” Ung Hoang Phuc but for various reasons, that did not work out. This had caused an even bigger uproar since in another article prior to this one, Tien denied the rumors with Ung Hoang Phuc altogether.

If the two is actually dating, I’d say Thuy Tien made a good choice for herself.  Le Cong Vinh is considered one the best player in Southeast Asia;  At the age of 23, he has won three VietNamese Golden Soccer Ball Award and is the highest paid player in V-League. But one of his most noted accomplishment is making the tie breaking kick in the very last minute of the 2008 AFF Suzuki Cup game to give Vietnam its first ever ASEAN Football Championship title, which became one of the most exciting  national celebration in VietNam.
