Commenting on the opponents, Chung said: “We met Thailand at the AFF Championship three months ago. They have good profession, stature and strong playstyle. Thailand previously attended the World Cup, so I highly appreciate our opponents in the SEA Games final.”
Answering a query on Vietnam’s preparations for the title match, the 68-year-old tactician said: “Vietnam and Thailand have met a number of times recently, so the two teams have clearly understood each other’s players and playstyle. We have been well-prepared for the final. Despite Thailand being higher rated, Vietnamese players are now ready.”
“Vietnamese players had three days off after the semis, which has allowed them to return to full fitness. We have prepared all aspects for the clash against Thailand, including penalty kicks,” Chung affirmed.
He stated that Vietnamese players are now in a comfortable and excited mood ahead of the title decider.
