Ball possession was in favor of Vietnam because our challenges on defense were not convincing.Vietnam had free reign to get anywhere on the paddock they ran through at times and around our defenders.Because of their superior speed, quickness and handling. Do you think it has something to do with the style and fast game of Asean football we are no familiar with?
I mean, import that play in Europe with bigger slower players that easy to mark or these imports are only playing second division in leagues of those countries?
Dude, those 2nd division players are the type that become imports in SE Asia. Duric wouldve been a 2nd or 3rd division player and he's a star player in SE Asia.
The reason the Thai ran amok is because we couldnt defend as a team. Individually, our defenders are superior. But guys like Lucena, Cagara, and Jonson only come to the team when they are actually playing. How many Azkals camps have they been in? Thats the reason our off-side traps fail a lot of times because they arent even in sync when keeping the line.
And SE Asian type of play being "quick and better ball handling"? Have you seen friendlies between SE Asian countries like Indonesia or Malaysia playing against EPL/ La Liga teams? Their so called "superior quickness and ballhandling" got smuffed when they played against a European unit that had good team defense.
