Football comments U23 Vietnam vs U23 Malaysia semi-final SEA Games 31
U23 Vietnam Top of Group A with a record of 3 wins and 1 draw. Coach Park Hang Seo’s students did not lose and did not even concede a goal. However, the performance of the home team has not created a sense of peace of mind for the fans.
Except for the opening match with a strong victory against U23 Indonesia, U23 Vietnam had many problems in the remaining 3 matches. Coach Park Hang Seo himself cannot deny that the students have not been able to make him satisfied. The biggest problem lies in the organization and coordination of the players.
Both U23 Philippines, U23 Myanmar and U23 Timor Leste make it difficult for U23 Vietnam in different ways. Coach Park Hang Seo’s students have not done well in attack, especially when they encounter teams that actively defend and compete fiercely with the idea of breaking the home team’s play.
The goals that U23 Vietnam scored against the above opponents all came from sharp pieces of coordination. However, such balls do not appear much in every match. U23 Vietnam could not maintain the pressure to force the opponent to make mistakes, but still had to rely on the shining moments of individuals.
Fortunately for U23 Vietnam, when the gameplay is still incomplete, Coach Park Hang Seo can still rely on players who are too old. Do Hung Dung, Nguyen Hoang Duc are still the top-class midfielders in Southeast Asia and they have done a good job of leading the juniors in a difficult situation.
Malaysia U23 seemed to hold the top position of Group B, until suddenly happened in the last match. The team led by coach Brad Maloney let Cambodia U23 hold a draw with a score of 2-2 and lost the top spot to U23 Thailand. That shows that U23 Malaysia also has many shortcomings that U23 Vietnam can fully exploit if played well.
Malaysia U23 is creating positive signals after the failures of the seniors in the national team. The players of coach Brad Maloney can play quickly and know how to pressurize thanks to attacking players who have the ability to create mutations. The counter-attacks of Malaysia U23 will therefore be very formidable for the U23 Vietnam defense.
Expected lineup of U23 Vietnam
Van Toan; Van Xuan, Tuan Tai, Thanh Binh, Viet Anh, Van Do; Hoang Anh, Hoang Duc, Hung Dung; Tien Linh, Manh Dung
Prediction: U23 Vietnam 1-0 U23 Malaysia
