“Vietnam will face Timor Leste in the last match.”
1NEWS – Park Hang Seo said that Vietnam still has many shortcomings after they beat Myanmar 1-0 in Group A SEA Games 2021Friday (13/05/2022).
“Myanmar did not use the usual 4-1-4-1 formation and they switched to playing with three centre-backs. I was expecting this,” Park said at his post-match press conference.
“All the players understand the strategy, but don’t execute it well, especially the passing. This is a lesson for them to learn and develop.”
For 90 minutes, Park Hang-seo’s men continued to press the Myanmar defense. Despite releasing many crosses and taking many corner kicks, the team nicknamed the ‘Golden Star Warriors’ was not able to break into the Myanmar goal.
A new goal was created when Le Van Do entered.
The player belonging to Pho Hien FC made Vietnam’s attack more lively and sure enough, in the 75th minute, Van Do provided a comfortable space for captain Do Hung Dung to score the only goal of the match.

“The final result was 1-0 for Vietnam. But I think we didn’t play well, not only in the first half but also in the second. There were many reasons but it was mainly due to wrong passes and poor movement. are some situations that require composure but the players don’t have it.”
Van Do started the match with the Philippines but did not meet Park’s requirements and he was immediately withdrawn. In this match, Do remained on the bench and when Park gave him a chance, he returned it with an assist to help Vietnam win.
“I always believe in my players. I chose them because they are good,” said Park.
With this victory, Vietnamese rose to the top of group A with seven points. In the last group stage match on Sunday (15/05/2022), the Golden Star Warriors will face Timor Leste.
