A Vietnamese international football defender has been handed a record suspension after breaking an opponent's leg in a domestic league match.

Tran Dinh Dong has been banned for 28 games by the country's football federation, but he intends to appeal against the verdict - which also stipulated he should pay for the injured player's medical bills.
