In with the bricks; WORLD OF FOOTBALL By KEVIN McALLION.

Byline: KEVIN McALLION

VIETNAM have cemented their status as an emerging football nation by persuading Brazilian star Denilson to join their league.

The 31-year-old, who joined Real Betis for a world record pounds 24million in 1998, will now strut his stuff at Hai Phong Cement FC.

Cynics will claim the winger is only there for the money but Denilson insisted: "I'm 31 and want to stay in Vietnam a long time." Try bad mouthing the government - that will earn you a 30-year stretch..
