Saigon tournament 1971


Held at Cong Hoa Stadium, Saigon.

Note: the proper title of the tournament is unclear.  A Vietnamese source reported it as a
      benefit event for the Combatants' Spring Tree Fund, while a Hong Kong source reported
      it as the Tet (Lunar New Year) tournament, although Tet was not until 27-Jan-71.

                   leaving the field in protest at the referee having disallowed a Rangers goal.]
