Director Park Hang-seo (64)’s ‘Last Dance’ opponent was decided to be Thailand.
The Vietnam national soccer team, led by coach Park Hang-seo, scored two goals from striker Nguyen Tien Linh at the 2022 ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Mitsubishi Electric Cup semi-final second leg held in Hanoi, Vietnam at 9:30 p.m. won 2-0. With 1 win and 1 draw, Vietnam advances to the final and meets Thailand.
The first leg of the final between Vietnam and Thailand will be held on the 13th at My Dinh National Stadium in Hanoi, Vietnam. 토토 The second game will continue on the 16th in Thailand. Vietnam will challenge for the third championship in five years since winning in 2018.
Thailand is the strongest player in the tradition representing Southeast Asian football. Thailand is the country with the most wins in the Southeast Asian Football Championship, first held in 1996, with six victories. Even in the most recent year, 2020, Thailand defeated Shin Tae-yong’s Indonesia to win the championship.
Before manager Park Hang-seo took office, Vietnam was a periphery in Southeast Asian football. In 2017, after Park Hang-seo took over as head coach of the Vietnamese national team, the position of the strongest player in Southeast Asia passed to Vietnam. In 2018, coach Park gave Vietnam its second Suzuki Cup victory in 10 years and became the strongest player.
Vietnam, which used to shrink when faced with Thailand, succeeded in improving its constitution after the appointment of Park Hang-seo as coach. Vietnam completely broke the jinx with a 1-0 win over home team Thailand in the 2019 King’s Cup semifinals held in Thailand.
There are also debts to pay off. Coach Park Hang-seo met Thailand in the semifinals of the 2020 Suzuki Cup and was eliminated with 1 draw and 1 loss. This final stage is the last chance for manager Park Hang-seo to defeat his rival Thailand. 토토
If coach Park Hang-seo defeats Thailand and wins the championship, Vietnam will conquer Southeast Asia for the third time in history. Coach Park Hang-seo remains as an eternal hero in Vietnamese football history. An eternal foe awaits him on the highest stage. Director Park Hang-seo’s ‘Last Dance’ is expected to remain as an all-time great game in many ways.
