Vietnam did not lose to Malaysia

We lost to ourselves. Too complacent. So hasty.

After Singapore game, everyone celebrated as if Vietnam had already won SEA Games. I don't understand why people underestimated Malaysia that much before the final especially when they were very hungry for a revenge. This attitude plus the pressure of the final affected all Vietnamese players and they could not show their best.

Vietnam had beaten Malaysia in the group stage but it all happened in the past. Obviously Malaysia came into the final, knowing how Vietnam would play, how Vietnam would pass and move. Vietnam could not break their defense while their attackers seemed very dangerous. They exploited all the space we left behind when we pushed up. Yet we kept pushing up to attack and kept losing the ball. It was a big big mistake and we finally had to pay. Malaysia had a successful game and was well-deserved with the victory.

  7. lose is still a lose. Typical vietnam football style. malaysian was learned from how the way vietnam played while win malaysia penalty 2 or 3 years ago. Football research found out vietnam delayed the game so much until players only play for 35 minutes. LOL. Last game, i found out they still want to make the same strategy. When gk bad injured and still dont want to replace him. anyway, good luck vietnamese. :)

  8. To be honest Vietnam were far superior to every team in the SEA Games matches I saw, and I saw many of them. Malaysia were a shadow of Vietnam in the group games. However a one-off final is up for grabs by the team who takes their chances and in truth I'm disappointed Vietnam lost as they deserved to win the gold based on the football they displayed. In the real world, Malaysia would've been thrown out of the competition for attacking the referee in their earlier game, which was disgraceful. But they got away with it and sometimes cheats do prosper!

  9. AB.....the vietnamese tried to buy time, tried to find penalty, tried to ACT (just look at the ACT when the put the ball in their own net in group match....the defender suddenly fall asking for foul. hahaha...LOL). Their coach have super ego. They are not THAT STRONG. They draw with Thais but Msian WON with Thais. Anyway, the Msian is BETTER TEAM YESTERDAY. U just had to admit it dude. :)

  10. I think ist is not a luck that made Malaysia win..it is come from the hardwork and never give up spirit...you should see how can the defender make a mistake??I think that it is not the defender fault...but the Malaysian kick the ball very good and the defender can't block it...you know...vietnam draw withThailand..while Malaysia win with Thailand...and Andy...this is under 23 football game ok?not the senior that make Malaysia emmbrased
