“Against the same team, Indonesia U-19 lost 0-7 and 1-5.”
1NEWS – Like the Indonesian U-23 national team, Vietnam is also making preparations before the 2021 SEA Games are held. In fact, Park Hang-seo’s troops just drew 1-1 with South Korea U-20.
After being postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the SEA Games will start next month. According to the draw, Indonesia will join Vietnam, the Philippines, Myanmar and Timor Leste. Unmitigated, the host will be Garuda Muda’s first opponent on May 6, 2022.
To achieve maximum results, Indonesia and Vietnam are both making serious preparations. Shin Tae-yong brought the players to practice in his hometown. Meanwhile, Park Hang-seo prepared the domestic squad by inviting South Korea’s U-20.
Vietnam has plans for two trials with The Young Taegeuk Warriors. The first match will take place on Tuesday (19/4/2022) and the second match will be held on Friday (22/4/2022).
In the first warm-up match, a penalty goal helped Vietnam to a 1-1 draw with South Korea. The match was played at Viet Tri Stadium, Phu Tho. This stadium will also be one of the organizers of football matches at the Southeast Asian sports parties.
The match against South Korea U-20 is an opportunity for Hang-seo to test a different formation for the SEA Games squad. He also tried to use 21 players in total.

However, the results are not optimal. The second youngest player in the squad, Bui Vi Hao, who is 19 years old, gave Vietnam a penalty in the 17th minute when it was fouled in the box. From the penalty spot, the team captain, Dang Van Toi, put the ball into the left corner.
It was the goal that equalized for Vietnam after three minutes earlier South Korea had scored from a set piece. From a corner, Bae Jun-ho crossed for Lee Young-jun to head from close range past Nguyen Van Toan.
After the match, Hang-seo admits that she is happy with the team’s performance because the players followed her instructions. “I need to test the ability of the players. I have a good impression of the new players. I think this is an important match,” said Hang-seo, reported by VN Express.
Before meeting Vietnam, South Korea U-20 had faced Indonesia U-20. As a result, Indonesia gave up 0-7 and 1-5.
