Correspondent Cho Yong-woon = The Malaysian national soccer team, led by coach Kim Pan-gon, defeated Thailand, a powerhouse in Southeast Asia.
Malaysia defeated Thailand 1-0 in the first leg of the 2022 ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Mitsubishi Electric Cup semi-final held at Bukit Jalil National Stadium in Kuala Lumpur on the 7th.
Malaysia, which overcame the baseline at home, will advance to the final even if it draws in the away game in the second leg. However, as Thailand is showing such a strong move at home, it is regrettable that they did not score a larger score even after winning the first game.
According to Malaysian media ‘Markanbola’, coach Kim Pan-gon also looked back after the game, saying, “I am satisfied with the victory, but it was a home game and 1-0 was not enough. Of course, there were more chances to score. 메이저놀이터
In fact, Malaysia’s extra goal disappeared due to the Korean referee’s misjudgment. In the 10th minute of the second half, Malaysian defender Dominic Tan shook the net with a header when the Thai goalkeeper failed to handle the ball during a free kick attack opportunity. It was a scene without any problems, but referee Kim Dae-yong canceled the goal, saying it was a goalkeeper charging foul. The Thai goalkeeper bumped into a Thai player, not a Malaysian player.
Director Kim Pan-gon protested harshly at the obvious misjudgment. However, this tournament had no choice but to accept referee Kim Dae-yong’s misjudgment as there was no video review (VAR). Chief referee Kim Dae-yong became the center of controversy by not declaring Thailand’s obvious penalty kick at the end of the game.
Manager Kim Pan-gon kept quiet about the goal cancellation scene. “I didn’t see it correctly. I don’t want to comment on it,” he said. “I don’t have much money to pay the fine. I won’t talk about the decision.”
