January 06 News tonight, the first round of the Southeast Asian Cup semi-finals kicked off.
Indonesia drew 0-0 with Vietnam at home.
Compared with the game itself, some small frictions between the Korean coaches of the two teams, Park Hang-soo and Shin Tae-yong, attracted more attention from the media.
Park Hengxue said at the post-match press conference: "Although the expedition to the away game is very difficult, the players played well and finally completed the goal of a tie set before the game. The game started at 7:30 in the evening.
Then it was brought forward to 4.30pm, but it’s the same conditions for both teams, so I won’t comment in particular."
Then he said: "The Indonesian team is also a good team, but we are stronger. After coach Shin Tae-yong coached Indonesia, their combat effectiveness has indeed become stronger, but we are still much stronger than them."
Shin Tae-yong, who attended the press conference afterwards, said: "Since the Vietnamese team is stronger, why is the score 0-0?"
At the press conference the day before the game, Park Hang-seo and Shin Tae-yong attended together, but they were both Koreans, but they didn’t even shake hands in greeting. This also triggered media discussions. Regarding this, Shin Tae-yong said:
"I wanted to shake hands, but Coach Park Hang-soo turned around and left, so I gave up."
