“Think of the 2022 AFF U-19 Cup as just a warm-up…”

1NEWS – Chairman PSSI Mochamad Iriawan confirm position Shin Tae-yong as the coach of the Indonesian U-19 national team despite failing to bring his squad through the group phase at the 2022 AFF U-19 Cup.

“Shin is still continuing (training) because we see the extraordinary development of the children,” said the man who is familiarly called Iwan Bule after the match.

According to the man who is familiarly called Iwan Bule, even though he did not qualify for the semifinals, the U-19 national team showed good performance in the 2022 AFF U-19 Cup.

Of the five matches, Indonesia has never lost and won three. The squad nicknamed “Garuda Nusantara” also became the tournament’s most fertile squad with a total of 17 goals and only five goals conceded.

Shin’s team is also considered to be quite tough despite rotations to maintain the physical condition of the players in the midst of a busy schedule.

“Unexpectedly, when the reserve players were played, it turned out that the quality was almost the same as the core players. It means that Shin really has extraordinary talent. The children also have ‘chemistry’ (emotional bonds) with him,” said Iwan Bule.

However, the slick score was not enough to take Indonesia to the semifinals because they lost head to head with Vietnam and Thailand.

Vietnam and Thailand drew 1-1 which made Vietnam come out as group winners and Thailand ranked second in Group A. PSSI was disturbed by the score series because they considered Vietnam and Thailand to compete without the intention of scoring goals after the conditions were equally strong.

In fact, if Vietnam and Thailand beat each other, Indonesia would lock up a place in the semifinals because, at the same time, the “Garuda Nusantara” squad fumbled Myanmar 5-1.

“To qualify for the semifinals, there are indeed regulations that regulate. But what Vietnam and Thailand have done should not be allowed to remember they are big teams,” said Iriawan.

The Indonesian U-19 national team failed to advance to the semifinals of the 2022 AFF U-19 Cup despite beating Myanmar 5-1 in the final Group A match at Patriot Candrabhaga Stadium, Bekasi, Sunday (10/07/2022) night.

Indonesia did not get to the top four because the last match in Group A, namely Vietnam versus Thailand, ended in a 1-1 draw. Indonesia lost “head to head” from the two teams.

Thus, the two best Group A teams to seal a place in the semifinals were Vietnam as group winners and Thailand in second place.

The last time “Garuda Nusantara” failed to qualify from the group stage of the U-19 AFF Cup occurred in 2016.

From the match against Myanmar, Indonesia’s goals were scored by Muhammad Ferarri (two goals), Arkhan Fikri, Rabbani Siddiq and Ronaldo Kwateh. Myanmar reduced the position via La Min Htwe.
