Coach Park Hang Seo was surprised because Vietnam U22 played better than expected against China U22

The coach of Vietnam Park Hang-seo did not share too much in the press conference after the friendly match against China U22.

With the goals in the 18th and 59th minutes of striker Nguyen Tien Linh, Vietnam U22 won convincingly with a score of 2-0 against China U22 in a friendly match which took place this afternoon (8/9) . This victory is even more meaningful for individual coach Park Hang-seo when this is the first time he has the opportunity to meet former teacher Guus Hiddink.

Speaking at a post-match press conference, coach Park Hang Seo said: "I am very happy that the team is playing better than expected. However, this victory has not said anything. China U22 still lacks many players to play. The China U22 have been led by coach Guus Hiddink, so they will definitely be stronger in the AFC U23 tournament in 2020".

In the victory against China, if Nguyen Tien Linh is the most prominent name with two goals, his teammate Ho Tan Tai also deserves praise. Becamex Binh Duong's defender managed to perfect his right flank. Not only that, he is the owner of both passes to help Tien Linh make a double. A few other names that also play prominent are midfielder Trieu Viet Hung, defender Huynh Tan Sinh or striker Ngo Hong Phuoc.

Victory over China will be an important stepping stone in the preparation process of Vietnam U22 for the goal of winning the 30th SEA Games gold medal which will take place by the end of this year.

After this victory, the players will return home and return to the schedule of the host clubs. Meanwhile, coach Park Hang-seo and assistant Lee Young-jin took turns to Indonesia and Malaysia to "spy" the situation of their opponents before the second round of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier.
