Khusnulla Asadullaev, the team leader for Korea U23, went to support coach Hwang Sun-hong and assistant.
“Coach Hwang sat in stand A watching attentively. He was surprised when U23 Vietnam was equalized in injury time,” Asadullaev revealed on the afternoon of June 3 before the training session of U23 Korea. After that, Coach Hwang went straight to the hotel U23 Korea stationed.
U23 Vietnam twice took the lead thanks to the help of Phan Tuan Tai and Van Tung. Ben Davis and Suphanat Mueanta, respectively, equalized for Thailand U23. In which, Suphanat’s goal took place in the second minute of injury time of the second half.
Talking with Asadullaev, he was surprised at what U23 Vietnam showed: “It’s hard to believe that U23 Vietnam dropped the victory in injury time. I don’t understand why the team didn’t defend the majority in home yard or buy time according to the law”.
Asadullev thinks that the U23 players in Vietnam are inexperienced, but also considers it an interesting point of young players, who always play their best, without tricks.

“Vietnam U23 is hard to beat Korea U23. They are very strong,” said Asadullev. “However, you will beat Malaysia U23.”
Asadullev once went to China to watch the 2018 Asian U23 final between U23 Uzbekistan and U23 Vietnam. He was surprised with what U23 Vietnam showed when bringing the match to extra time. The performance of U23 Vietnam over the years still impresses the Uzbek man.
On June 5, U23 Vietnam will face U23 Korea at Lokomotiv Stadium. U23 Vietnam has never won or drawn U23 Korea in the past. The last time the two teams met, U23 Korea won 2-1 in the group stage of U23 Asia 2018.
