TrueID newspaper: ‘Thailand is still obsessed with Vietnam’
TrueID newspaper cited three reasons why Thailand could not win against Vietnam at U23 Asia, including the fear of losing in the 31st SEA Games final.
The first reason given by the Thai newspaper was Coach Worrawoot Srimaka made an unreasonable substitution. “This match midfielder Ekanit Panya is not playing in the right form,” commented the newspaper. “He lost the ball easily, neither created chances nor connected with his teammates. Ekanit made it impossible for Thailand’s left wing to attack dangerously. But it wasn’t until the 80th minute that he was substituted. when this should have happened right after the first half.”
Ekanit created the most finishing opportunities for his teammates on the Thai side this match, with three situations. It was he who released the assist ball for Ben Davis to shoot from far to equalize 1-1 for Thailand. Ekanit left the field to make way for Patrik Gustavsson in the 80th minute, when Vietnam were leading 2-1. In the offset, Thanawat Suengchitthawon hung the ball for Suphanat Mueanta to head near the city to bring a point for Thailand.
Even though the home team drew, TrueID still criticizing The gameplay that coach Worrawoot applies is “monotonic”. They wrote: “Thailand does not show diverse tactics. The players have to find their own way to overcome the opponent thanks to their individual technique. We do not see the tactical imprint from the coach. Thailand’s gameplay is quite predictable. , that is to give the ball to 11 players for luck. They can move, pass or shoot freely. Thailand in SEA Games still play the ball in a certain shape. opposite way”.
At the 31st SEA Games final, Thailand lost 0-1 despite attacking more and TrueID suppose, I think This defeat made the team haunted when they met Vietnam again yesterday 2/6. “Vietnamese players under Gong Oh-kyun still often had cramps and slept in the yard. There were times when players had to go out to get medical care and made Vietnam play with 10 people, but why didn’t Thailand at that time? attack, but still pass the ball back and forth. Worrawoot should have loudly urged his students to come forward, but here the coaching staff just kept silent. The voice from a Thai fan in the stands was even clearer. did not show decisiveness, because they are still haunted by the defeat against Vietnam in the SEA Games final”.
Thailand and Vietnam will play the second match on June 5. Vietnam kicks first, at 8pm to meet South Korea, Hanoi time. Two hours later, Thailand played a match and had to win against Malaysia.
