Nguyen Cong Phuong was not used again in Sint Truiden

Cong Phuong continued not to be used in the 0-0 draw between Sint Truiden against Zulte Waregem in the fifth round of the Belgian National Championship.

In the last two rounds, Nguyen Cong Phuong is included in the list of players. However, despite many difficulties in the attacking front, with four out of the last five matches not scoring, coach Marc Brys did not give Cong Phuong a chance to play.

Before this round, the captain of Sint-Truiden said that the Vietnamese striker had technical and speed, but was weak in tactics. Since the beginning of the season, after five rounds, Cong Phuong has been registered for four matches but only entered the field 20 minutes in the match to lose 0-6 against Club Brugge.

The match between Sint-Truiden and Zulte Waregem took place 30 minutes later than the plan because the truck carrying the visitors broke the tire on the way to the stadium.

The home team actively played offensive but encountered many difficulties before the opponent's closed defense system. In the second half, coach Marc Brys used three personnel changes to find freshness in the way of play. However, Cong Phuong was not selected.

The match was only really exciting at the last 15 minutes of the match when the two teams slammed their full force. 75 minutes, the home team changed the wing to attack from left to right rhythmically. However, Balongo hit his head and shot the bar at close range despite no one being followed. The visitors also had a reason to regret it when the 82nd minute striker Larin hit the crossbar.

With 0-0 results, Sint Truiden continues to rank 12th in the Belgian National Championship. Marc Brys's team won one, drew one and lost three, with four points.
