The first head-to-head match between Korean coaches in the history of the Southeast Asian World Cup was canceled.
Malaysia, led by coach Kim Pan-gon, lost 0-3 to Thailand in the second leg of the semifinals of the 2022 Southeast Asian Football Federation (AFF) Mitsubishi Electric Cup (Mitsubishi Cup) held at Thammasat Stadium in Pathumthani, Thailand on the 10th (Korean time).
Malaysia won 1-0 against Thailand in the first match, but failed to advance to the final with a total score of 1-3 in the first and second matches. As a result, the opponent of coach Park Hang-seo’s Vietnam, who arrived in the final, was decided to be the defending champion, Thailand. Thailand is the country that has won the most championships (6 times).
Thailand’s Tirasil Tangda scored the first goal in the 19th minute, and Malaysia finished the first half 0-1. Then, in the 10th and 26th minutes of the second half, Bodin Farah and Adisak Krysson scored successive goals and lost completely. 스포츠토토
Although Malaysia failed to advance to the finals, it showed its potential by reaching the semifinals of the tournament a year after appointing Kim Pan-gon, former head of the Korea Football Association’s National Team Strengthening Committee, as head coach in January of last year.
Vietnam and Thailand will play the final on the 13th and 16th of this month in a home-and-away format. Head coach Park Hang-seo will step down as head coach of the Vietnamese national team after the final of this tournament.
