`We lost, but I know the players played their best,` coach Park Hang-seo said at the post-match press conference in Pakansari (Indonesia).

Coach Park Hang-seo came to the sidelines to encourage and give more confidence to the players in the semi-final match against his home team, South Korea.

Having only one day off after the quarterfinals, Vietnam is still inferior to South Korea – the team that used from the beginning all three players over 23 years old, who just attended the 2018 World Cup.

Vietnam improved after the break, but Korea still showed its class.

`When I went into the locker room during the break, I saw that the players were so stressed, I had to talk to them to regain confidence. Besides, I also made some tactical adjustments for the team to change.

The Korean military leader also defended his decision to let Van Quyet start from the bench and only send the 1991 midfielder onto the field after half an hour of play.

Coach Park Hang-seo refused to comment on Korea, but only congratulated his home team on going to the final, competing for the gold medal.
