The Indonesian Football Federation (PSSI) advocates using major tournaments for young players to gain experience. In fact, coach Shin Tae-yong’s students have improved through each match.
The proof is in World Cup qualifiers In 2022, Indonesia lost 0-4 to Vietnam, but only 6 months later, the Van Dao team drew teachers and coach Park Hang Seo, taking the top spot and reaching the final of the AFF Cup 2020.
Coach Park Hang Seo also said that compared to the 30th SEA Games, Indonesia U23 was much stronger. Six players playing abroad including Asnawi Bahar, Elkan Baggott, Egypt Maulana, Witan Sulaeman and Saddil Ramdani were all called up.
3 overage players including Fachruddin Aryanto, Marc Klok and Ricky Kambuaya are all highly appreciated for their expertise, in which Aryanto and Kambuya played impressively at the AFF Cup 2020.
Meanwhile, U22 Indonesia 3 years ago, there were only a few experienced players like Asnawi Bahar, Evan Dimas, … the rest all played in the domestic tournament, have not been “tested” in the team. nation.
Most importantly, U23 Indonesia at the 31st SEA Games is led by coach Shin Tae-yong. The Korean strategist is helping Indonesian football “change skin” with a disciplined, pragmatic but also transformative game.

Despite being opposed by the Indonesian press when he removed Irfan Jaya from the SEA Games list, it also showed that Mr. Shin was confident in his people and choices.
0-0 draw between the two teams at AFF Cup 2020 shows that coach Shin Tae-yong will become a great counterweight to Park Hang Seo. The Indonesian leader is expected to have enough cunning, acumen and strategic vision to awaken the potential of the Van Dao team.
SEA Games 31 will most clearly show the level of the two Korean strategists, in the context that both U23 Vietnam and U23 Indonesia are under pressure to win.
“The 2019 SEA Games final, I watched it on TV and remember it very well. It’s nice to see Coach Park Hang Seo doing well in Vietnam. But in the next match, Mr. Park and I will do our best to win. We do not have much information about the opponent in the group stage, so we will take the time to monitor the opponents and prepare accordingly for each match.
This time, we have players playing abroad, in Europe, which is useful for U23 Indonesia. We believe we can play a better match against U23 Vietnam. U23 Vietnam may have an advantage over us because they can play in front of the home crowd. We have to get over it, we have to do our best, play our best“, coach Shin Tae-yong confirmed.
