The Vietnam Under-23 national team, led by coach Park Hang-seo, has won the Southeast Asian Games for the second time in a row.

Vietnam was dyed red again and everyone was enthusiastic about 'Park Hang-seo Magic'.

Amid the cheers of 40,000 home fans who filled the stadium, Vietnam shook the goal net in the 38th minute of the second half.

A newcomer born in 2000, discovered by director Park Hang-seo, hit the corner of the goal with an exquisite header.

Coach Park, who loved him like a child, soon suppressed the excitement of the players, but could not hold back the tears that were welling up.

While the Taegeukgi was waving in the stands, Vietnam defeated Thailand 1-0 to win the Southeast Asian Games for the second time in a row. 

Coach Park enjoyed the joy of receiving the rinses from the players.

There was a special meaning to the fact that we lost 2 in a row...


Coach Park, who colored the streets red by leading Vietnam to victory in 60 years at the last competition, rose to the top again in this competition held in the main room and heated up the whole of Vietnam.

At the end of this tournament, coach Park Hang-seo, who has resigned the under-23 national team battalion and led only the A national team, will once again challenge for the top spot at the Suzuki Cup at the end of this year, when his contract expires.

Thank you.]
