Head coach Park Hang-seo and head coach Shin Tae-yong had a heated battle of nerves from the first game. At the press conference for the first leg, they passed each other but did not even shake hands. Even after the game was over, they fought over the result.
It was the same before the second round. Director Shin Tae-yong said, “Now Indonesia is on the same level as Vietnam,” and coach Park Hang-seo responded, “Coachs should show results, not words.
The winner in the war of nerves was coach Park Hang-seo and Vietnam.
Vietnam took the lead in the 3rd minute through Nguyen Thien Linh’s goal. After Vietnam’s opening goal, the game got a bit rough. A war of nerves unfolded at the stadium as warnings were exchanged. However, in the 2nd minute of the second half, Thien Linh again opened the goal for Indonesia and drove Vietnam back.
Manager Park Hang-seo’s contract with Vietnam ends after the Mitsubishi Cup. The final stage of ‘Park Hang-seo Magic’ in Vietnam ended in the final.
On the other hand, there is a possibility that a confrontation with Korean coaches will take place in the final of the Mitsubishi Cup, a World Cup in Southeast Asia. Coach Park Hang-seo has already settled in the finals. If Malaysia advances to the final according to the results of the second match against Thailand, coach Kim Pan-gon and coach Park Hang-seo will face each other. In the first leg, Malaysia beat Thailand 1-0.
