Asian Cup 2019: Jordan beatable, says confident Coach Park

Jordan is strong, but not unbeatable, says Park Hang-seo, coach of the Vietnamese men’s football team.

Having made it past the group stage of Asian Cup as one of the four best third-placed teams, Vietnam’s next opponent is Jordan, who placed first in group B, having beaten tough teams like Syria and defending champions Australia.

However, coach Park believes that Vietnam can gain good results in the match.

"Jordan is very powerful," he said. "They are quick and dangerous in long ball counter attacks. However, no team is perfect or unbeatable.

"Vietnam is going to have quite a tough match, but we can win if we are well-prepared and embrace our strengths," Park said.

Jordan head coach Vital Borkelmans considered Vietnam a strong opponent.

"I watched many of Vietnam’s games. They are strong and have many skilled players, with a fast paced and offensive playing style. With an opponent like that, our players have to focus on training and in the game, avoid making mistakes. Because our goal is to win," Borkelmans said.
