New coach of Indonesia’s football national teams Shin Tae Yong has been trying to build and undefeatable team to Indonesia’s team. Former South Korea’s coach in 2018 World Cup had chosen 28 players of under 19 years old national team and training them in Thailand.
From the result of frienship’s game with 5 South Korea’s club, Indonesia had defeated four times. Vietnam’s mass media has underestimate on Indonesia’s team during the game but they forgot if Indonesia’s U19 had defeated by South Korea’s senior and professional football club. From Vietnam’s media news, we can see that Vietnam has worried to the progress of Indonesia’s team because Vietnam knows that Indonesia will be their next challenge.
Shin Tae Yong has also been training Indonesia’s senior team, U23 until U16 team. We believe in Shin Tae Yong can create and build strong national football teams for Indonesia at all of ages level. I believe the quality of coaching from Shin Tae Yong will more better than the previous Indonesia’s coach team.
Indonesia’s football club, PSSI and Indonesia’s government must support Shin Tae Yong. Indonesia’s coaching paradigm will change under Tae Yong’s methods. Shin Tae Yong will choose the best Indonesia’s footballer in Indonesia’s national team without discrecition and intervention.
I suggest Shin Tae Yong must make training time for Indonesia’s senior team which will meet with Thailand and UAE in the world cup qualifying. Indonesia must win when meet with Thailand, UAE and Vietnam to get chance join in the next Asia’s cup qualifying.
Because of this, I suggest to Shin Tae Yong to choose several Indonesia’s footballer such as Otavio Dutra, Fabio Beltrame, Victor Igbonefo, Piere Bio Pauline, Marc Anthony Klok, Esteban Vizcarra, Osas Saha, Amiruddin Bagus Kahfi, Ilija Spasojevic, Silvio Escobar, etc to senior team because they have strong endurance stamina as one of condition which want to fullfil each players if they want to play in national teams under Shin Tae Yong. Lets see the comeback of the next undefeated Indonesia’s national teams. Hopefully.
