‘130th → 96th’ Park Hang-seo’s 5 years leaving Southeast Asia with gifts

Although the end of ‘Park Hang-seo Magic’ was a sad ending. However, Park Hang-seo over the past five years is by no means a failure.

Coach Park Hang-seo said Vietnam lost 0-1 to Thailand in the second leg of the 2022 ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Mitsubishi Electric Cup final held at Thammasat Stadium in Pathum Thani, Thailand on the 16th. Vietnam, which was pushed back by a total of 2-3 in the first and second games, gave the championship cup to Thailand.

Coach Park Hang-seo put down the Vietnam baton with the runner-up. Head coach Park Hang-seo, who announced early on that he would part ways with Vietnam after this tournament, did his best to end the 5 years with a championship, but the final result was disappointing. 메이저사이트

Vietnam finished the first leg home game 2-2 and had to win the second leg away game. From the beginning, they faced Thailand strongly and showed enthusiasm, but in the 24th minute of the first half, the opponent gave the winning goal to a cannon ball mid-range shot and collapsed.

Although coach Park Hang-seo failed to surpass Thailand, I will never forget the achievement of putting Vietnam in the ranks of the strongest in Southeast Asia. Coach Park Hang-seo rose to the Vietnamese command tower in October 2017. Former Vietnam coach Park Hang-seo was only ranked 130th in the FIFA rankings. Manager Park Hang-seo promised to raise it to the top 100 during his tenure.

Now, five years later, Vietnam is ranked 96th. Vietnam’s highest ranking was 92nd in 2021 while coach Park Hang-seo led. Compared to when he was first appointed, he rose up to 38 steps. Naturally, Vietnam succeeded in leaving Southeast Asia. It has risen to the top ranks in Asia beyond the strongest in Southeast Asia.

Coach Park Hang-seo took charge of not only the A national team but also the under-23 (U-23) team. In the meantime, the 2018 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-23 Asian Cup runner-up, 2018 Asian Games 4th place, 2019 2021 Southeast Asian Games gold medals, and the A team won the 2018 Suzuki Cup, 2019 AFC Asian Cup quarterfinals, 2022 Qatar World Cup Asia final made it through to the preliminary round.

Lastly, even if it is not normal, there is considerable local affection for coach Park Hang-seo, who has upgraded Vietnamese football to the next level. Previously, the Vietnamese media ‘Lao Dong’ said, “Thank you, coach Park Hang-seo.” “Director Park Hang-seo was not proud of what he did, but the players and fans know how great and great a contribution he made. Coach Park Hang-seo, who is devoted to the same style until the end Thank you.” He bowed his head.
