From Thuy Tien’s “grave digging” article, I see that Thai football is increasingly losing
Two and a half years ago, while Coach Park Hang-seo had both Quang Hai, Van Hau and two older players Hung Dung and Trong Hoang in the 20th SEA Games arena, Thailand only sent the right U22 team to attend. . In order for Vietnam U22 to hold a draw in the final match of the group stage, the “little war elephant” had to regretfully return home early, witnessing coach Park Hang-seo’s teachers and students being crowned in the SEA Games arena for the first time, help Vietnamese football “relieve thirst”.
Nearly 5 years ago, singer Thuy Tien – the wife of Vietnamese football legend Le Cong Vinh had another harsh post about SEA Games football on her personal Facebook page:
“I wonder why people are still interested in SEA Games? It is a tournament that Southeast Asian countries organize themselves to take selfies with each other for fun, but FIFA doesn’t care to organize it, but the U teams (U19, 22, 23…) are never a set. The face represents the football background of a country. It is judged that the strong or weak football background lies in the national team. If the national team wants to be strong, it must rely on the club with the highest league in that country. For example, Thailand has Thai League, Vietnam has V.League…“.
“However, with a village festival tournament that VFF forced the biggest tournament in the country – V.League, had to stop the tournament for two and a half months to focus on training and competing for the SEA Games, while the SEA Games was just a game of U23 children. While in Thailand, they only focus on practicing SEA Games, the U23 players have a week before the competition“.
After Thuy Tien’s article, U22 Vietnam under the guiding hand of Huu Thang – later the successor of the chairman of the HCM City Club of Cong Vinh, lost to Thailand 0-3, then left. SEA Games arena 29 “no trumpet, no drum”. Coach Huu Thang resigned, elected Duc also left his seat at VFF. At that year’s SEA Games, U22 Vietnam had the heroic U19 generation of both elected Duc and Quang Hai.
Two years later, Thai football still has its confidence when it “accepts” Vietnam and the rest of its opponents by not using over-aged players at SEA Games 30. But now, on the eve of SEA Games 31, the wind changed direction.
Not only “imitating” Vietnam, calling all three over-aged players to attend the 31st SEA Games, resorting to the national team’s head coach – Mano Polking, to seize the U23 team’s determination to win the men’s football gold medal, Thailand was also in turmoil. adjusted the domestic football calendar to give priority to this regional arena. It is not difficult to realize the “defeat” determination of team leader Nualphan Lamsam as well as the Thai Football Federation in this “low-lying” tournament.
Although successfully “revenge” in the AFF Cup arena when defeating the Vietnamese team in the nearest tournament to step up to the worthy championship, Thai football is still “under the door” of teachers and coaches. Park Hang-star is at the U23 level when the last two times they met, they were both failures. Is it with their highest determination that the Thai people are at all costs reclaiming their position for the U23 team – the future of football in the country?
Is it true that young Thai football is increasingly losing ground to Vietnam, and then has to resort to “lowering the book” to revive the spirit?
To those questions, perhaps Thuy Tien will be the most accurate answer?
