Speaking at the press conference after the match, Australian coach Brad Maloney of Malaysia U23 expressed his disappointment when he left the Asian U23 tournament without a single point: “This match, U23 Malaysia started quite well, but U23 U23 Vietnam is the team that took advantage of the opportunity to open the scoring.

At the end of the first half, we had to receive another penalty and a red card that made Malaysia U23 unable to turn the game around in the second half.

Coach Maloney admitted that the Malaysian U23 players were depressed, not physically able to find better results against U23 Vietnam:

“We have just come back from the 31st SEA Games. The players have spent 6 weeks exhausted, so they are not in their best shape when entering the 2022 AFC U23 Championship.”

When the reporter asked if there were any surprises with the starting lineup of U23 Vietnam? Coach Maloney concluded: “We don’t care about the starting lineup of U23 Vietnam. We only care about how to approach this match, because U23 Vietnam needs to win to have a ticket to continue.

I don’t understand why the referee showed the red card in that situation. I will watch it again through the tape of this match.”

Returning to the above controversial situation, in injury time in the first half of the match between U23 Vietnam and U23 Malaysia, the Sri Lankan referee Dilan Perera blew the penalty, drawing a red card to disqualify Hairiey (No. 12 – U23 Malaysia).

From a professional perspective, VFF referee Duong Van Hien shared with Dan Viet: “This situation in my opinion is a penalty. The Malaysian U23 player let the ball touch his hand in a position where his hand was not used to support the muscle. body.

His arms widen his body, blocking the ball. The referee judged that this was a situation where a clear goal was prevented, so it was correct to blow the penalty and show the red card.”
