The battle between Korean coach Park Hang-seo and Indonesian coach Shin Tae-yong, which drew attention, could not decide the winner.
Vietnam and Indonesia drew 0-0 in the first leg of the 2022 Southeast Asian Football Federation 메이저사이트 (AFF) Mitsubishi Cup semifinals held at Gelora Bungkarno Stadium in Jakarta, Indonesia on the 6th (Korean time).
It was Indonesia that overwhelmed the atmosphere on this day. The overall shooting lead was 8-4. But the accuracy has gone down. Indonesia could only connect 2 effective shots, and there was no big difference compared to Vietnam (1).
It was Vietnam that caught the mood in the beginning. In the 13th minute of the first half, Nguyeh Quang Hai fired a left-footed shot, but it went over the net. Indonesia also had a chance in the 20th minute of the first half. However, Dendi Sulistiyawan’s judgment was disappointing. Even though he caught the ball in front of the opponent’s goal, he chose to pass rather than shoot, which was directed to the Vietnamese defender. In the 24th minute of the first half, Indonesia’s Yakob Sayuri made a similar mistake and missed a goal opportunity.
A decisive opportunity came to Indonesia in the 36th minute of the first half. Marcelino Ferdinan going head-to-head with the Vietnamese goalkeeper. But the shot went too far.
As the game became fierce, both teams engaged in a fierce battle of nerves in the 10th minute of the second half. However, neither team scored in the second half and the match ended in a draw.
Vietnam and Indonesia will move to Meading Stadium in Hanoi, Vietnam on the 9th to play the second leg of the semifinals.
Vietnam has won this competition twice in total (2008 and 2018). The 2018 championship was achieved by manager Park Hang-seo. Indonesia has yet to win this tournament. I will challenge for the first championship with coach Shin Tae-yong.
