U23 Vietnam becomes first team in history to win men’s soccer championship sea games Not conceded a goal.
Throughout the 31st SEA Games, Vietnam U23’s defense played very solidly. Fortunately, the U23 Vietnam team created this incredible record.
Vietnam U23 kept a total of 570 minutes without conceding a goal (including 4 group matches, 120 minutes in semi-final against Malaysia U23 and final against Thailand U23).
Including the 30th SEA Games, in which Mr. Park and his students won the championship, Vietnam U23 kept the net for 829 minutes in the SEA Games, only counting the official game time.
The last time coach Park Heng-seo’s U23 team had to concede a goal was in a 2-2 draw with Thailand in the 2019 group stage.
Defense is still the strength of the Vietnam team led by coach Park Hengrui. At the 2019 Southeast Asian Games, the U22 Vietnam team kept 5 clean sheets in 7 matches of the competition. In the 2018 AFC Cup, Vietnam conceded 5 goals in 8 games (not conceded a goal in the group stage).

It was Coach Polking who had to admit that Thailand U23 couldn’t find a way to break through the defense line of Vietnam U23 due to its too solid defense.
According to Coach Polking, Coach Park Hengrui is very good. However, he still thinks there is too little time for the Thai U23s to be ready to make a difference in this competition.
“U23 Thailand has only 1 day to prepare and practice. I am proud of their performance. When it comes to coaching, it’s hard to compare one person to another. Every coach has a different model and philosophy. I respect Mr. Park. He and I have different philosophies. We all want to win.
I admire him and Vietnamese football. I’m so disappointed I didn’t have time to prepare for this game. We had a chance, but we didn’t take it.Anyway, Thailand U23 also had an unforgettable journey‘, Coach Polkin concluded.
Previously, at the 2018 Asian Games, Vietnam conceded a clean sheet in the first 5 games of the Olympic Games, against many strong teams such as Japan, Syria, and Bahrain. In the second round of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers, Vietnam also has five clean sheets after eight games throughout the season.
No matter which team he leads or uses, Coach Park has built a solid defensive system. It was the fulcrum of Vietnam’s U23’s second consecutive men’s soccer gold medal under the leadership of the South Korean strategist.
