Working hard to beat Laos U23, Thailand U23 avoided the host in the semi-finals
In the last match of Group B, the failure of the Malaysian U23 players to win against Cambodia U23 suddenly brought a better opportunity for the Thai U23 players to take the top spot.
Entering the final match against the team that had no goals, U23 Laos, coach Polking’s army seemed to have an easy match. However, all developments on the field were not as expected.
Laos U23 players with a relaxed spirit played a match that is considered the best in this year’s SEA Games. They created a lot of difficulties for Thailand U23, sometimes even playing better than the opponent.
However, with its level, Thailand U23 is still the team with the opening goal. Starting from an attack on the right wing, midfielder Matee Sarakum had a not-so-good finish, but fortunately the ball still hit the defender’s foot and went straight into the net. This was also the only goal of the first half.
Entering the second half, the Thai U23 players, after getting the goal, also began to show signs of overlapping, in order to preserve their forces to calculate the semi-finals.
But it is a good opportunity for Laos U23 to control the ball and deploy attack. Significant pressure was created towards the goal of goalkeeper Kawin. Many times this goalkeeper had to show his saving skills for Thailand U23.
Outside the field, worries began to show on the faces of Coach Polking and the female team leader Madam Pang. Both had heated exchanges about the play of the players on the field.
Fortunately for Thailand U23, they successfully secured the victory, thereby gaining the group position that few expected.
This result also helps teachers and coaches Polking avoid the host U23 Vietnam in the semi-finals and only have to meet a lighter opponent, U23 Indonesia.
