Reporter Park Dae-ro = Attention is focusing on whether coach Park Hang-seo, who is in charge of Vietnam’s national soccer team, will be able to reap the beauty of the end by defeating rival Thailand.
Vietnam will play the first leg of the 2022 ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Mitsubishi Electric Cup (Mitsubishi Cup) final at Haoni My Dinh National Stadium in Vietnam on the 13th at 9:30 pm 안전놀이터. The second game will be held at the same time on the 16th.
The team with better results in the first and second games will win the championship.
Coach Park Hang-seo lost to Thailand in the semifinals at the 2020 Suzuki Cup held in December 2021. At that time, Vietnam lost 0-2 in the first leg and drew 0-0 in the second leg and was eliminated in the semifinals. After beating Vietnam, Thailand won the championship by defeating Indonesia, led by Shin Tae-yong, in the final.
Manager Park Hang-seo has not been able to gain an advantage against Thailand. Coach Park, who took office in 2017, won 1 win, 3 draws and 1 loss with Thailand. Coach Park won the King’s Cup 1-0 in June 2019, but hasn’t won in the next three years or so. During this period, Vietnam failed to score a single goal against Thailand.
Thailand has won the tournament six times and holds the title of the country with the most wins.
If coach Park, who is leaving Vietnam at the end of this tournament, defeats his rival Thailand in his last tournament and wins the championship, it is expected that he will be able to decorate his coaching career in Vietnam for the past five years.
