Previously, FAT has determined that it will not use Thailand’s national stadium as a place to host Vietnam because this stadium is in the process of being repaired to prepare for the U23 Asian Cup next year. .
Accordingly, the home ground of Bangkok United club, Thammasat will be used by the Golden Temple team as a place to welcome Park Hang-seo’s teachers and students. This football field is located in Rangsit in Pathum Thani province, about 40 km from Bangkok. Thammasat Stadium was built in 1998, with a capacity of more than 20,000 seats, meeting all conditions for organizing matches according to FIFA standards. Thammasat is also one of four stadiums that will host the AFC U23 Championship in January next year.
Normally, matches at the national team level will be arranged by FAT to play at Rajamangala “fire pan”. However, this stadium is being repaired, so it cannot be used for the match against the Vietnamese team on September 5.
Although the match was far from taking place, it started to heat up because of the reaction of the fans of the two teams and the fierce statement from the new coach Nishino. Under Coach Park Hang-seo, Vietnamese football has faced Thai football 3 times and won all of them.
This is the reason for Vietnam Tel to be confident against a “dirty” opponent like Thailand despite having to play away in the second qualifying round of the 2022 World Cup.
