Again, the potential of defending champion Thailand could never be ignored. Thailand, who planned a come-from-behind drama in front of 18,927 home fans on Tuesday evening, completely defeated Kim Pan-gon’s Malaysia. Coach Park Hang-seo’s Vietnam, who won the final ticket a day earlier, met a strong team, Thailand, who were aiming for their 7th championship trophy in their career.
The Thai men’s national soccer team, led by coach Alexandre Polking, defeated Malaysia in the 2022 AFF (ASEAN Football Federation) Championship semi-final second leg held at Thammasat Stadium in Pathum Thani, Thailand at 9:30 pm on the 10th (Tuesday) in our time. Defeated by -0 and reached the final with a combined score of 3-1 in the first and second games to meet Vietnam.
Valuable header goal by ‘Tirasil Dangda’ aiming for the top scorer The
home team, Thailand, in the second leg after losing 0-1 in Kuala Lumpur three days ago, had no choice but to go to waste. In that respect, the value of the first goal scored 19 minutes after the start of the game was irreplaceable. From the left flank, Thai captain Tiraton Boonmatan raised a cross that looked like a ruler, and Tirasil Dangda, the leading goalkeeper, put in an accurate header shot right in front of the goal.
Tirasil Dangda’s sixth goal in this tournament was decisive to make him greedy for the top scorer title. Vietnam goal scorer Nguyen Tien Linh, who reached the final the day before, scored two goals and caught up with a total of five goals in this tournament, so the competition in this category also created an interesting structure. It seems inevitable fate to meet Vietnam, which boasts a solid defensive organization with no goals in this tournament, in the two consecutive finals on the 13th and 16th.
Tiraton Boonmatan, who assisted the valuable first goal with an accurate cross, also tied for first place in the assist record with his fourth assist in this tournament, indicating that the Thai players’ offensive ability has reached its peak.
Thailand, which gained momentum in front of the home fans, took out Tirasil Dangda at the start of the second half and sent in Adisak Kreisorn to score an additional goal in the second half. It was a choice to shake up the Malaysian defense by using Adisak Kreisorn, who has a relatively excellent physique.
The change took effect after just 10 minutes, with Thailand scoring a crucial extra goal. In the 55th minute, midfielder Bordin Farah, who received a cut-back cross from the right flank from Ekanit Panya’s slightly twisted direction, successfully completed a right-footed round kick. The role of Adisak Kreisorn, who dragged the Malaysian defenders right in front, was effective.
And in the 71st minute, Adisak Kreisorn even scored a key goal. This time, Thailand’s right flank attack continued sharply. After receiving a low cross from Suphanan Burirat, Adisak Kreithorn kicked the ball with his right foot and hit the bottom right column of the Malaysian goal. 토토
Malaysia, led by coach Kim Pang-gon, fought hard with captain Faisal Halim and lion-headed center back Shahrul Nazim, but defending champion Thailand, who prepared sharp attacks from the side, lacked support. It is a conclusion, but it was the second leg of the semi-finals that the Malaysian players couldn’t help but linger in the minds of the Malaysian players about the scene of an additional goal canceled three days ago in the second half of the Kuala Lumpur game due to referee Kim Dae-yong (Korea)’s unreasonable decision.
As such, defending champion Thailand, who has won the tournament six times (2020, 2016, 2014, 2002, 2000, 1996), will face up-and-coming powerhouse Vietnam, who won the tournament twice (2018, 2008), in the final two games. It became. It will be held first in Hanoi on the evening of Friday (January 13), and will return to Pathum Thani next Monday (January 16).
