“U23 Indonesia is easy to join the group and will take revenge on U23 Vietnam”
On March 23, Indosport (Indonesia) newspaper published an article analyzing the possibility of confrontation between U23 Indonesia and U23 Vietnam at the 31st SEA Games in May. The writer Deodatus Kresna Murti Bayu Aji thinks that the chance for the two teams to meet from the group stage is very high and in the upcoming tournament, U23 Indonesia is the stronger team.
“At SEA Games 31, U23 Indonesia was in the 2nd seed group along with arch-rival Malaysia. Meanwhile, the No. 1 seed group includes U23 Vietnam and Thailand. This gives U23 Indonesia many opportunities to face the “Golden Stars” like in the 2019 SEA Games.
In this 31st SEA Games, U23 Indonesia has many opportunities to avenge the loss of U23 Vietnam. At the 2019 tournament, U23 Indonesia lost twice to U23 Vietnam of Coach Park Hang-seo in the group stage and final matches.
As a result, the Garuda youth team (nickname of U23 Indonesia) of coach Indra Sjafri had to leave the Philippines with a silver medal. However, in this tournament, the strength of U23 Indonesia has increased a lot thanks to the guidance of coach Shin Tae-yong.
That is proven at the AFF Cup 2020, the Indonesian national team consisting of many young U23 players still played very successfully when holding a draw with Vietnam and then winning the runner-up position.” – Indosport wrote.
In addition to being confident in the possibility that U23 Indonesia will be in the same group and will “take revenge” on U23 Vietnam, Indosport newspaper believes that the home team will be stronger thanks to the addition of naturalized player Marc Klok.
This midfielder was born in the Netherlands, is 28 years old but is expected to be added to the list of Indonesia U23 to attend the SEA Games. Indosport believes that the presence of Marc Klok promises to make the defense of U23 Indonesia stronger.
At SEA Games 31, the No. 1 seed group included U23 Vietnam and Thailand; group 2 includes Indonesia, Malaysia; group 3 includes Myanmar and Cambodia; group 4 includes the Philippines, Singapore; group 5 includes Laos, Timor Leste. The draw is expected to take place on April 6.
