Coach Mai Duc Chung admitted that the Vietnamese women’s team did not meet the requirements, leading to a strong 0-9 defeat against Spain.
“The players have shown great effort and determination, but our shortcomings lie in the lack of effective communication on the field. Our team’s skill level is inferior to that of our opponents, and the players are not even coordinating well or supporting each other, which makes the situation more challenging. Confidence is also a factor that needs improvement,” commented coach Mai Duc Chung on the team’s 0-9 defeat against Spain.
In this match, coach Mai Duc Chung decided to try most of the positions before officially entering the 2023 Women’s World Cup Finals.
According to coach Mai Duc Chung, this is an important lesson for the players before facing the top opponents in Group E, namely the defending champion USA, the defending runner-up Netherlands or Portugal.
“In the second half, I boldly put players who have not played much. Actually, the second half didn’t play well, but this is a test of the squad …”, coach Mai Duc Chung said.
