Coach Velizar Popov identifies major issue plaguing Vietnam team

Challenges Faced by the Vietnamese National Team in Second Leg Against Indonesia

The Vietnamese national team faced a challenging match against Indonesia at My Dinh Stadium, falling behind 2-0 in the first half due to goals from Jay Idzes and Ragnar Oratmangoen. Coach Philippe Troussier’s future is uncertain following recent disappointing results, with coach Velizar Popov attributing the team’s struggles to psychological issues.

In an interview, Popov highlighted the importance of finishing scoring opportunities, noting that despite moments of dominance, the Vietnamese team failed to capitalize on their chances. He also praised Indonesia’s physicality and efficiency in exploiting their opponent’s mistakes.

Despite the team’s recent struggles, Popov revealed that he remains part of the minority of supporters who still trust Troussier. The Bulgarian coach acknowledged the Frenchman’s efforts but emphasized the need for improved mental resilience and finishing abilities in future matches.

As Vietnam seeks to regroup and address their shortcomings, the pressure mounts on Troussier to guide the team to success. With Popov’s insights and support, the Golden Star Warriors aim to bounce back from their recent setbacks and demonstrate their potential in future competitions.
