Shin Tae Yong’s strategy for Vietnam’s pressing style of play

Indonesia secured a victory over Vietnam in the second round of World Cup qualifying, Group F, played at Gelora Bung Karno. The Indonesian national team managed to beat Vietnam with a narrow score of 1-0. This win marked the first three points achieved by the national team in the second round of World Cup qualifying. It was also Vietnam’s second consecutive loss after previously winning in the Asian Cup. Both Indonesia and Vietnam did not perform very well in the first round. Indonesia had difficulty dismantling Vietnam’s complex defense in the middle, but the substitutions and tactical changes implemented by Shintayong in the second half succeeded in changing Indonesia’s game with higher intensity and in scoring the winning goal through a long throw scheme. In this match, Shinteyong’s mainstay was Pakem Tik, a center back, under the rule of the goalkeeper from PSIS Adi Satrio, who appeared as a starter in the National Team’s defense without Jordi Ahmad. The remaining three backs at the back were also filled by Rizk Rido Justin Hubner and new breed players who play in Venice J. In the midfield, the duo of Iva Renner and Marcelino Ferdinan were flanked by Yob Sayuri and Natthancho AON, who also made their debut in front of Sty. Caraka partnered with Rafael Struik and Witan Sulaiman who supported him. Meanwhile, Vietnam and their coach Philippe Trosie also used Pakam Tik as a center back with a 352 formation in the first half.

Indonesia initiated an attack from below but faced Vietnam’s medium block 541 defense. The short build-up game didn’t work well in this situation. The national team used a 3-2 structure with three defenders and two midfielders. Meanwhile, Vietnam, with its medium pressing block, focused on preventing the national team from progressing through the midfield. They allowed the three defenders to control the ball and only pressed when a certain trigger occurred, such as when the Indonesian center-back released a progression to the midfielder. Then, the Vietnamese player would press closer to prevent the recipient of the pass from returning it. Marcelino and the targeted striker were directly pressed by the Vietnamese players in these situations. The progression and circulation pass released by the center-back triggered Vietnam to activate their pressing.

The difficulty when starting the attack forced several times the three center backs at the back to immediately release direct passes to the front which was also often ineffective. because of weak accuracy and Vietnam’s backline which was ready to anticipate it, in addition, the national team was not strong enough in the second ball situation which occurred after the jump was released in the middle of the first half. Indonesia responded to its difficulties in building attacks by rotating the haner position which went up to the DM position while Marcelino and Bitan were wide into the fullback area but this method was still not effective because the Vietnamese presidential block was not provoked by position rotation. Apart from the position rotation, it appears that the Indonesian center back is also instructed to be braver in bringing the ball forward when the Vietnamese presidential block is in the medium block position in one moment This method was successful in eliminating Vietnam’s presidential blockade. JZ’s dribble succeeded in luring one player in Vietnam’s second line to go up behind him, there was Eva Rener who moved to expose Atal’s space to receive a pass from him.

Difficulty building attacks and many failed jumps meant that Indonesia didn’t create many opportunities. in the first half only one shot on target from Rafael Streak’s weak kick and a link up 12 from yob and Witan which threatened the opponent’s defense responding to Indonesia’s less developed game in the first half S immediately made substitutions and micro tactical changes in the second half The South Korean coach brought in Aran and Sandy Walls to replace Nathan Hoky and Jakob. The aim was to increase the intensity of the game, especially with Arhan on the left side. Arhan’s advantage is that he is a winger who is more willing to take risks by dribbling and doing a lot of take ons. or passing the opponent compared to the other two left-wing backs, Nathan and Shin Patinama, who often play more safely, Arhan was also the main initiator in the process of creating Indonesia’s best opportunity, starting from his success in taking on the sa or passing the Vietnamese player.

He did a tribble until he approached the touchline and ended with his cutback to an empty Eggy in the penalty box, unfortunately, his tap-in was still blocked by the Vietnam goalkeeper. Apart from his explosiveness and terrible, there is another weapon that Arhan relies on, namely long-distance throws. Yep, from his long throw-ins, Indonesia succeeded. scoring the only goal was seen when Rin was done. The national team placed its tall back-back in the Iva Rener penalty box on the outside edge of box 16 to anticipate the ball throwing up and there was Egi who disturbed the goalkeeper so that he couldn’t cut the ball. Arhan’s throw was directed towards the middle and created a situation. t-shirt that caused the Vietnamese center to misanticipate the ball so that it fell right in front of Egy, which was not wasted by the player who had played in the Polish League. The micro change made by SD was to instruct one or both of the outermost centrebacks to move higher when Indonesia controlled the ball.

This was done to add players up front and at the same time create an unbalanced Vietnam presidential block. As seen in this clip, JZ plays the role of a modern center-back by moving up to create a connection in the midfield when starting an attack, even the back number player in this place also had a chance when he moved in until into Vietnam’s penalty box, you can see how good their quality is in understanding tactics by running fast to clear space in one moment. Hopner can also be seen who has risen to double weight center back with ies who has risen simultaneously. In addition to his success in beating Vietnam, we can see that Indonesia’s performance is not very satisfying from tactical aspects and several notes that can be improved in the attacking phase, the national team players have several times forced themselves to play on one side even though the 343 formation structurally has the advantage of width with the presence of two wingbags in the corridor on the left wing and the right wing as can be seen here in several moments The ball should be able to circulate to the side instead of forcing passes into areas where there are many Vietnamese players. Decisions or decision-making are still homework for the Indonesian National Team in the question phase.

The weakness that is often seen is that the Indonesian Midfield is often exposed, indeed with the 343 formation. Naturally, the National Team only has two midfielders who have to cover a wide area, especially in the transition phase where the two National Team midfielders are currently on the rise, meaning there is no defensive filter in the midfield so Vietnam’s attack is directly facing the backline, so this shortcoming can still be covered by one of them. The National Team’s defender will step up when the midfielder is out of position and there is a Vietnamese player who exposes space in the middle of Jizes with his precise timing, often succeeding in doing homework against Vietnamese players in his debut match. This Venezuelan player received a lot of praise because of his good performance, the most highlighted of which was of course his calmness. when he was the last person behind and passed the pressing of the Vietnamese players, wait for Jes’s separate analysis on the FC tactics room channel. These first three points make Indonesia sit in second place in Group F standings even though they haven’t played optimally.

The following points are important: Marcelino and his team will once again face Vietnam as the visiting team in Hanoi. It will be interesting to see if the national team can achieve a third consecutive win against Vietnam.
