Indonesian national team player, Asnawi Mangkualam, is ready to show his best game in the 2023 Asian Cup Qualification play-off against Taiwan.

Ansan Greeners FC right-back, Asnawi Mangkualam, has another opportunity to strengthen the Indonesian national team.

Asnawi Mangkualam again received a call to defend the Indonesian national team to face Taiwan in the 2023 Asian Cup Qualification play-off in Thailand.

The match will be played over two legs, on 7 and 11 October.

Previously, Asnawi Mangkualam had won the trust of Shin Tae-yong to appear with the Indonesian national team in the 2022 World Cup Qualifiers last June.

At that time, Asnawi played all three games against Thailand, Vietnam and the United Arab Emirates without ever being substituted.

In the 2023 Asian Cup Qualification play-off this time, Asnawi Mangkualam will most likely not be replaced either.

Because, Shin Tae-yong only brought the former PSM Makassar player to fill the right-back position.

Shin Tae-yong, who brought 29 players, did not call on another right-back as a back-up for Asnawi Mangkualam.

This is different from the center back sector where Shin Tae-yong called a total of seven players.

They are Fachrudin Aryanto, Rachmat Irianto, Rizky Ridho, Victor Igbonefo, Ryuji Utomo, Vava Mario, and Muhammad Firly.

Asnawi himself arrived in Thailand and participated in training with the rest of the Garuda squad on Monday (4/10/2021).

Even though he has just recovered from his injury, Asnawi admits that he is in good condition and ready to perform.

“Very happy and enjoying training with the Indonesian national team players today (yesterday),” Asnawi said, quoted by from the official PSSI website.

“I am in good condition and ready to fight Taiwan,” Asnawi said.

According to the player who was born on October 4, 1999, he has fully recovered from his injury.

Therefore, Asnawi is determined to show his best game for Indonesia’s victory over Taiwan.

“God willing, in the match against Taiwan we can do what the coach wants and get the best result. My hope is that we can win against Taiwan,” he said.

In this match, the Taiwanese national team is actually more favored because it has a higher FIFA ranking than Indonesia.

In the latest FIFA ranking list, the Taiwanese national team is ranked 151st, while Indonesia is in 175th position.

All 2023 Asian Cup Qualifying play-off matches will be played at Chang Arena Stadium, Buriram, Thailand.
