Marching back to Gelora Bung Karno Stadium with hopes of avenging their 2023 Asian Cup loss, Vietnam’s national football team faced another setback against Indonesia. This defeat sees the Golden Star Warriors overtaken by Tim Garuda in the Group F standings of the 2026 World Cup qualifiers in Asia, jeopardizing their chances of advancing to the next round.

Under the guidance of coach Philippe Troussier, the Vietnamese squad has failed to deliver desired outcomes, prompting criticism from fans and pundits alike. Troussier’s tactics and player selections have come under scrutiny, with many questioning his decisions on the field. Commentator Ngo Quang Tung echoed concerns over the “White Witch’s” managerial capabilities, highlighting discrepancies in player choices and substitutions.

Quang Tung pointed out the absence of seasoned players like Nham Manh Dung and Phan Tuan Tai from the starting lineup, advocating for the inclusion of rising talents such as Minh Trong, Dinh Bac, and Thai Son.

With Vietnam slipping in the World Cup qualifying standings, the upcoming matches will be pivotal in determining their fate in the tournament. As fans await a turnaround in fortunes, all eyes are on Troussier and his squad as they strive to salvage their campaign and secure a spot in the next qualifying stage. Time will tell whether the Golden Star Warriors can reignite their championship aspirations under the embattled coach’s guidance.
