However, the red shirt players twice failed to beat the Thai goalkeeper and twice missed the goal.

“The first half, the team was tense, didn’t play well, didn’t dare to play. After the break, the coaching staff adjusted the personnel and made the mentality, the team kicked better, dared to confront Thailand. Unfortunately, there was no match. If there is, the team spirit will be high and kick much better,” coach Pham Minh Giang said after the match.
