(VOVWORLD) - Thai coach Akira Nishino expressed disappointment with the scoreless World Cup 2022 qualifier against Vietnam on Thursday night, noting that his squad wasted many chances.
“The draw is so disappointing,” says Thai coach - ảnh 1 Akira Nishino is disappointed with the draw to Vietnam on September 5, 2019.

“I decided not to use any pure striker on the field. Thitipan  played on the attack alongside  Supachok, a small but skillful player. Both performed well today,” Nishino said in explaining his strategy.

“As Vietnam played defensively in the first half, we only rarely approached their goal and had to pass the ball as much as possible to make the Vietnamese players tired. In the second half, we used the long ball and created more chances. But we need to improve our finishing skills,” said Nishino.

Thailand will have 5 more days to prepare for a tough away game against Indonesia.
