“If we win 1-0, we win, so why are you pessimistic?”
The determination and confidence of Park Hang-seo, head coach of the Vietnam national soccer team, were unwavering.
The Vietnam national team, led by coach Park Hang-seo, drew 2-2 with Thailand in the first leg of the 2022 ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Mitsubishi Electric Cup (Mitsubishi Cup) final held at My Dinh National Stadium in Hanoi, Vietnam on the 13th (Korean time). 토토사이트
After trailing 1-2, it was a ‘valuable’ draw with a dramatic equalizer by Boo Van Thanh in the 43rd minute of the second half.
Conceding two goals at home is obviously a painful point. This is because the away goals rule applies.
Vietnam will play the second game on the 16th at Thammasat Stadium in Pathum Thani, Thailand.
Vietnam must win or score two or more goals to win. It is undoubtedly an unfavorable situation.
At the press conference after the first game, coach Park said, “It is true that the score of 2-2 in the first game is in favor of Thailand. But there is no reason for us to give up. If we win, it is a championship. We will try to win the trophy.”
To the question, “What percentage is Vietnam’s chance of winning?”, he replied:
“I’m not a percentage teacher or math genius. But I know we have to do our best.”
Coach Park also said, “If you win the second game, you win, but I don’t know why people are so pessimistic. As always, I will try to put on a better game.”
Coach Park will step down from the Vietnam command tower after this tournament. The second leg of the final is a farewell match.
The first leg of the day was the last game he played at home in Vietnam.
Director Park said, “I have received encouragement and support from many Vietnamese people during my five years of existence,” and “I will always engrave and cherish that feeling deeply in my heart.”
