Chinese newspaper reports Vietnam team struggles to hit target against Indonesia

Vietnamese Team Disappointed in Match Against Indonesia

In a disappointing display at Gelora Bung Karno, the Vietnamese national team failed to execute the ball control style demanded by coach Philippe Troussier. Despite their efforts, they struggled to create meaningful attacking opportunities, resulting in a goalless performance with zero shots on target against Indonesia.

The inability to secure even a single point in this crucial match was a major letdown for Vietnam, falling short of the team’s expectations. The defeat was especially disheartening given the high hopes for a positive result in Indonesia.

Criticism of Troussier and his squad was rampant, with a Chinese article translated by Dan Tri newspaper highlighting the team’s overall ineffectiveness. The lack of shots on target throughout the game was a glaring example of their struggles under the French coach.

Doubts about the team’s future were raised, with suggestions that Vietnam may struggle to advance past the second qualifying round for the 2026 World Cup. The downward trajectory since Troussier’s appointment has raised concerns about the team’s prospects in upcoming competitions.

Overall, the Vietnamese team’s performance against Indonesia was far from satisfactory, leaving fans and critics alike questioning the direction of the national squad under Troussier’s leadership. As they look ahead to future matches and competitions, significant improvements will be necessary to regain confidence and secure positive results on the pitch.
