The South Korean national soccer team (26th in FIFA rankings), led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, is playing Vietnam (95th in FIFA rankings) in an October A match evaluation match held at Suwon World Cup Stadium at 8 p.m. on the 17th.
Coach Park Hang-seo visited on the same day. Coach Park Hang-seo took the helm of Vietnam’s adult and U-23 coach in 2017. And wrote history. As the U-23 national team, it achieved the runner-up finish at the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-23 Championship (2018), the fourth place at the Asian Games (2018), and the second consecutive win at the Southeast Asian Games (2019-2021).
The senior national team won the Southeast Asian Football Championship (2018), the runner-up (2023) and advanced to Vietnam’s first FIFA Asian regional qualifying round (2022).
As such, coach Park Hang-seo created a new history of Vietnamese soccer. He, who had renewed his contract in 2019, put down the baton at the end of January this year.
Coach Park Hang-seo said in an interview at halftime on the 17th, “When I was there, I lost 1-3 in the Chinese tournament with U-23 and also lost in the Asian Games. The national team has never played. You will be able to grow a lot while playing against Korea. South Korea can also prepare for how Vietnam will cope with the FIFA ranking, but with the FIFA ranking falling in various areas. Both teams are hoping to grow through this game,” he said. 스포츠토토
In addition, “I have no intention of being an on-site supervisor in Korea. I am doing a children’s soccer class in Vietnam. “When the requirements and conditions are met in a third country, I think I will do it when given the opportunity,” he said.
