Hai said that in the past five years, coach Park Hang-seo and his assistants have helped elevate Vietnamese football to continental level, and a win at the coming match will be the most meaningful thank to the head coach.
The AFF Cup final second leg with Thailand will be Park's last game as head coach of the Vietnamese national team. His contract with Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) will expire at the end of January.
The coach said whether it's his first or last game, he always prepares for it with his utmost. Park also thanked the support from fans in both Vietnam and the RoK during the past five years working in Vietnam.
