“It was a crisis when you gave up PK…” The decisive moment Shin Tae-yong saw → He saved the spark for going to the quarterfinals

Coach Shin Tae-yong said the penalty save was a decisive scene.

Indonesia’s under-23 national soccer team, led by head coach Shin Tae-yong, won 1-0 over Australia in the second Group A match of the 2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U23 Asian Cup at Abdullah bin Khalifa Stadium in Doha, Qatar, at 4 p.m. on the 18th (local time).

It was an important victory. Indonesia had one win and one loss in two matches, vitalizing its hopes of advancing to the quarterfinals. Indonesia faced a crisis midway through the first half. Toure’s shot was deflected after hitting Coman’s hand in the 21st minute of the first half. After Australia’s attack, a VAR was conducted on the scene, and the referee declared a penalty kick. However, goalkeeper Hernando blocked Toure’s kick.

After overcoming a crisis, Indonesia scored the first goal in the last minute of the first half. In the 45th minute of the first half, Toe connected the ball to a volley, and Komang, who was in front of the goalpost, changed the direction with his head to finish the game. Indonesia, which took the lead, kept the score until the end, subdued Australia, and won its first victory of the tournament.

Coach Shin Tae-yong, speaking at a press conference after the end of the match, said, “I thought it would be a difficult game because Australia is a good team and the team has excellent physical conditions. It was not an easy game, but the players are getting better and better. I asked the players not to give up. I think the part that I asked them to play with confidence was a good fit.”

What Shin Tae-yong picked as the most decisive scene was goalkeeper Hernando’s penalty save. “The most threatening moment was when I gave up a penalty kick. I think I had a good result because I overcame it well.”

Coach Shin Tae-yong has made another good memory at the Abdullah bin Khalifa Stadium. Shin led the Indonesian A team to the Asian Cup in January. And in the second Group D match, he beat Vietnam 1-0, which was the stadium.

Coach Shin Tae-yong said, “Coaches sometimes have jinxes that they like without realizing it. This stadium has good memories from the Asian Cup. The players also said, “As this stadium has a good energy, if you do it with confidence, you will get good results.” I am grateful to win like this again today.”

Now, Indonesia has revived its hope of passing the group stage by overcoming defeat in the first match. It could face Korea in the quarterfinals. Coach Shin Tae-yong visited the match against UAE, which was Korea’s first match. He said he visited there to cheer for the team, but now he said he will analyze and see in person at the stadium as much as he can be a potential opponent.

“First of all, I would like to congratulate Korea on its victory over the UAE. In fact, I visited the stadium to cheer for the first match. Now, however, we need to focus on analyzing the match against China. As we believe we can advance to the quarterfinals, I think we need to focus on analyzing Korea and Japan from now on,” Shin said. 업소알바

Lastly, Coach Shin Tae-yong said ahead of the final match against Jordan, “Jordan looked solid in terms of team performance in the last match against Australia. However, we cannot judge based on just one match. We will analyze the situation further until the second match against Qatar, and if we make up for our shortcomings, I think we will bring about good results.”
