After the draw, Vietnam coach Park Hang-seo had an advantage over Indonesia coach Shin Tae-yong.
On the 6th (Korean time), Indonesia and Vietnam, who played the first leg of the semifinals of the 2022 ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) 토토 ASEAN Football Championship, drew 0-0 at Utama Gelora Bung Karno Stadium in Jakarta, Indonesia.
The quarterfinals will be played on a home-and-away basis. The two teams will have the second leg with Vietnam’s home game on the 9th, only three days apart. It is highly likely that not only power and tactics, but also recovery and stamina will act as big variables.
A draw is equivalent to an equal result for both teams, but considering the home-and-away method, it is a situation where Vietnam has benefited. Indonesia, which was inferior in terms of power, was behind in possession, but in the counterattack situation, they showed their desire to win and actively aimed for the goal. It was Indonesia who showed more strength towards the end of the game. However, coach Shin was unable to win.
Vietnam is currently on a six-game winning streak at home. It is even a 6-game winning streak. He scored 16 goals without conceding a goal. In addition, in November of last year, during the convocation period for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Borussia Dortmund, a prestigious football club, played against the Vietnamese national team in the nature of an Asian tour.
After the new coach took over, the two teams met twice. The first match, the 2022 Qatar World Cup qualifier in June 2021, was held in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), a neutral area, and Vietnam won 4-0. The second confrontation was the ASEAN Football Championship held in December 2021, which also drew 0-0 in Singapore, a neutral stadium. From the point of view of the new coach, it can be seen that the inferiority of the Vietnamese opponent has been overcome, as it has been a draw in the last 2 games in a row.
