Until three minutes before the end everything was possible wit a 2-2 score, after coming back from 2-0 behind. This has been the situation the whole tournament; making up arrears. This means that the players are very strong mentally and I hope the National Team will have the same attitude.
After 3-2 my excellent substitute Yori van der Torren tried to catch up arrears with power play; shot on the post but that was it. Eighteen seconds before the end Thailand scored from a 10 meter the 4-2. Looking back we can be very satisfied. Without any international friendly preparation match performing like this.
Now I’m in Europe and will start early July with the National Team to which four players of the U-20 team are added. On to the big tournaments later this year: SEA Games in Malaysia, Asian Indoor Games in Turkmenistan and the AFF Tournament in Vietnam.
