“Shin Taeyong Magic?” Indonesia, Vietnam… Group D is in chaos

January 20, 2024 | by

Following Japan’s loss to Iraq, Indonesia unexpectedly defeated Vietnam, complicating the situation in Group D.

The Indonesian national soccer team (FIFA ranking 146th) led by head coach Shin Tae-yong beat Vietnam (94th) led by Philippe Trusier 1-0 in the second Group D match of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Qatar Asian Cup at Abdullah bin Khalifa Stadium in Doha, Qatar on the 19th.

Indonesia (with three points) that won the match will be ranked third in Group D, and if it causes a stir against Japan (with three points) in the final match, it will be able to advance to the round of 16. On the other hand, Vietnam virtually failed to advance to the round of 16 as it lost two consecutive games.

On this day, Indonesia opened with a strong shot in the first minute, and threatened Vietnam’s goal with a right-footed turning shot in the 8th minute of the first half.

Indonesia’s offensive, which was driven from the beginning of the game, gradually weakened, but Vietnam, which was considered dominant in terms of power, struggled and failed to produce a sharp scene.

Indonesia, which adjusted its lines, hit the ball on the head in the 36th minute of the first half following Tuan Hai’s header heading in front of the goalkeeper in the 30th minute of the first half, but was blocked by the Vietnamese goalkeeper.

However, Indonesia, which continued to tap the Vietnamese goal without giving up, eventually paid off. Strawick, who caught the ball inside the penalty box in the 39th minute of the first half, won a penalty kick after VAR, and Asnaoui took a 1-0 lead as he calmly finished.

Vietnam, which gave up the first goal, tried to change the atmosphere by taking out a replacement card at the start of the second half and threatened Indonesia’s goal by shooting one after another.

However, when the goal was not easily opened, Vietnam’s attack lost its strength, and Tan Long’s exit in the 44th minute of the second half caused him to lose his will to chase and the game ended with Indonesia’s 1-0 victory 랭크카지노도메인.
