Correspondent Cho Yong-woon = Park Hang-seo (64), coach of Vietnam’s national soccer team, is challenging the last dance tonight.
Vietnam will play its home game against Thailand in the first leg of the 2022 ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Mitsubishi Electric Cup Final at My Dinh Stadium in Hanoi at 9:30 pm on the 13th. As the total score of the first and second games decides the winner, Vietnam must catch the home game.
Vietnam boasts the strongest power in this tournament. Coach Park Hang-seo cruised all the way to the final with all the players he had used. From the group stage to the semifinals, they recorded 4 wins and 2 draws, and boasts a perfect air-defense balance of 14 points and no goals.
Coach Park Hang-seo, who bids farewell to Vietnam at the end of this tournament, will face his archrival Thailand. Coach Park Hang-seo took office in Vietnam and surpassed Thailand’s stronghold, but it is still a tough opponent to be called a strong player in Southeast Asia. Moreover, coach Park Hang-seo also has a tight record with Thailand with 1 win, 3 draws and 1 loss, and since 2019, he has been without a win for 4 consecutive games.
Attacking Thailand is not easy even for manager Park Hang-seo. So, I asked Indonesian coach Kim Pan-gon for help. Coach Kim Pan-gon recorded 1 win and 1 loss against Thailand in the semifinals, but lost 1-3 on aggregate score and failed to advance to the final. Still, he has the know-how of catching Thailand once, so it is expected to be of great help to coach Park Hang-seo. 토토사이트
Head coach Park Hang-seo said through the Vietnamese media ‘Ken 14’, “I talked with coach Kim Pan-gon, who faced Thailand twice last night,” and “Our coaches have also finished analyzing Thailand.”
Coach Park Hang-seo, preparing for the finale, said, “The players shouldn’t be burdened because of me. From the beginning, I emphasized to the players that they have to play for the country as a national team member. I have to repay the Vietnamese fans with a victory.”
