Park Hang-Seo, head coach of Vietnam national team said we understands the expectations of the Vietnamese people and will strive to beat China in the 2022 World Cup Asian Qualifiers round 3 group B matchday 8 on tomorrow (1 February).
Vietnam has already been eliminated After no points from playing 7 matches, losing all matches.
“The Vietnam team has lost a lot in the past time. As the head coach, to let everyone down like that, I’m sorry about this. 60 years ago, the Vietnamese team entered the third qualifying round of the World Cup. This is a completely new tournament, our competitors are all at the top level in Asia. That’s also why we’re last. Our players are going through a difficult time.” Park said in pre-match press conference today
“In Vietnam, I know people attach great importance to the first day of Tet. The players and I have prepared very well.”
“In Southeast Asia, Thailand has entered this qualifying round but they have also never won a match. The Vietnamese people are looking forward to this match, I understand. So me and the players are determined to win tomorrow’s match,”
“We have 7 consecutive defeats. The press, people and experts are very understanding and focused on giving feedback to the team. We are willing to absorb those things with humility and positivity. But I think it’s been 60 years since we’ve been here. Joining for the first time, how can we guarantee success right away? I think building the next generation is something we need to discuss, what you need to contribute to Vietnamese football has a better future.”
“Many people say that the Vietnamese team is having a golden generation. I do not agree with that saying because the result of this World Cup qualifying is the effort of the VFF, the club and many people and many more units. Saying this generation is golden, the next generation is more successful, what generation do we say they are? Maybe the diamond generation? I think we need to make more efforts to develop Vietnamese football,”
“China is a very strong tactically very good team in Asia. They are also the top team in Asia. Their sports background, football resources, people resources and investment quality are all at the top of the world. Their tactics are very fast, focusing on the two sides with fast people. Their downside, I don’t think this is the place to talk.”
Vietnam will face China in 2022 World Cup Asian Qualifiers round 3 group B matchday 8 on 1 February 8.00 pm at My Dinh Stadium, Hanoi.
