However, in spite of their magical journey in Indonesia, Coach Park Hang-seo and his team are forever the champions in the hearts of Vietnamese football fans for their indomitable spirit and powerful will shown through the game.

The next great goal of Vietnamese football at ASIAD 2018

The difference in ability between the two teams made for a harsh match-up at the semi-finals for the Vietnamese Olympic team. Despite the high-spirited performance, the team could not make a win and so will have to compete for the third place at the play-offs of the ASIAD.

However, the Vietnamese team gave a good show on August 29, refusing to give up the fight to the last minute. Park Hang-seo and his team are going into the play-off against the UAE on September 1.

Based on the general evaluation of the Vietnamese and UAE Olympic teams, Park is forecast to continue reaching into the team’s reserves, while galvanising the steadfast spirit of the team to win the game.

As long as the ball keeps rolling, Vietnamese team and their fans keep dreaming big and keep fighting.

Coach Park Hang-seo—the man behind the miracles

Regardless of the result on August 29, Coach Park Hang-seo and the Vietnamese Olympic team have made a strong impression on people across Asia.

Back when Park was appointed as the head coach for the Vietnamese National Football Team, John Duerden, a reporter from Fox Sport Asia, wrote: “In order to help Vietnamese football reach the next level though, Park Hang-seo may be a smart appointment. He is not going to take Vietnam to the top of Asian football, but in the short to medium term, he can take them a little closer.”

And till now, the performance of Park and his team has exceeded the expectations of Duerden as they have achieved two proud milestones in just a few months: being the runner-up at the AFC U23 Championship and going into the ASIAD semi-final for the first time ever.

The fans might be a little disappointed after the semi-finals, but the miracles that Park has done for Vietnamese football during this short time are definitely undeniable.

Indeed, with his determination, devotion, and hard work to achieve his goals, Coach Park has inspired millions of Vietnamese people to live life to the fullest and follow their passion.

Shinhan Bank has been a reliable companion of Coach Park Hang-seo in his pursuit of the great ASIAD dream. His and his students’ ceaseless drive to “reach for the stars” delivers the exact message that Shinhan Bank would like to emphasise: “Commit yourself to a great purpose, keep running for it and success will be yours. Shinhan Bank is committed to accompanying you on every path chosen, to make your dreams true.”

“We are focusing on advancing the brand image of Shinhan Bank by introducing a sticker collection of Coach Park Hang-seo and Footballer Luong Xuan Truong on Zalo Messenger. At the same time, we also get our brand to interact more frequently with our target audience on social media platforms, such as Facebook and Youtube.

“To me, Shinhan Bank is not only a trustworthy financial partner from South Korea, but also a respectful compatriot who is always by my side during my time here in Vietnam. I am honored to be their Brand Ambassador, and truly hope that we would soon deliver meaningful, yet thoughtful Korean spiritual values to the Vietnamese people,” said Coach Park Hang-seo.

In April 2018, Shinhan Bank launched four new branches and transaction offices in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, pushing the total number of branches and transaction offices across the nation to 30. This sustainable development has made Shinhan Bank the leading foreign bank in Vietnam.

In only five months, from March 2018 to July 2018, Shinhan’s number of customers rose from 1.04 million o 1.16 million people, while Internet Banking users went from 120,000 to 170,000 people and the number of credit card owners has grown from 190,000 to 200,000 people.
