‎‎Competition: SEA Games 30th men's football

Vietnam U22 has won all 4 matches of the SEA Games 30th group stage, therefore Park Hang Seo's team has 12 absolute points with the goal difference of +13, whereas Thailand U22 has 9 points with goal difference +10.

At the 30th SEA Games, when the teams have equal points, the goal difference is considered first. Thus even when losing to the opponent with a minimum gap, Vietnam U22 is still ranked above Thailand U22 and gains the right to enter semi-finals. However, facing the Thai team is always a big match, so Vietnamese players will still play with the highest determination.

After the unexpected defeat to U22 Indonesia, Thailand U22 won all 3 recent matches, however, their situation at this time is still quite pessimistic. The 2-0 victory over U22 Laos made U22 Thailand the team with the lowest goal difference in the 3 teams competing for the ticket to semi-finals.

After being absent in the starting lineup to face Laos U22, most likely that various Thai attacking stars like Kritsada, Supachai Jaided, Supachok, Suphanat Muenta will play from the first minutes this match.

Therefore, Nishino's team is forced to win Vietnam U22 with a minimum of 2 goals at all costs. This is a very difficult task and most likely Thailand U22 will only get a draw.
