Will Shin Tae-yong go to the Olympics for the first time in 68 years? Guinea and one-shot match

Paris Olympics men’s soccer intercontinental PO in France at 10pm on the 9th

Indonesian soccer, led by coach Shin Tae-yong, is in the final battle to advance to the Olympic finals for the first time in 68 years.

The Indonesian U-23 national soccer team will play the ‘2024 Paris Olympic Men’s Soccer Playoffs (PO)’ against Guinea in Clairefontaine, France, at 10 p.m. on the 9th (Korean time).

With 15 of the 16 teams that will participate in the Paris Olympics finals confirmed, the final team will be decided in this match.

Indonesia ranked 4th in the 2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-23 Asian Cup, which just concluded on the 4th.

In the quarterfinals of the tournament, they defeated Korea Republic under coach Hwang Seon-hong in a penalty shootout and advanced to the semifinals, but lost to Uzbekistan and then to Iraq in the third place match. 카지노사이트

As a result, Indonesia failed to obtain a direct ticket to Paris, which was awarded to third place.

One last chance remains. If they win the intercontinental PO single match against Guinea, who finished fourth in the 2023 U-23 Africa Cup of Nations, which also serves as the final qualifier for the African Olympics, they can go to Paris. If Shin Tae-yong wins Guinea, he will advance to the Olympic finals for the first time in 68 years since the 1956 Melbourne Games. In terms of objective power, Guinea is predicted to have the upper hand. Based on the adult national team, Guinea (76th) is far ahead of Indonesia (134th) in the FIFA rankings. In addition, it is a difficult opponent for Indonesia due to its unique flexibility and height in Africa. Indonesia, led by four naturalized Dutch players, Justin Hubner, Nathan Joao, Ivar Jenner, and Rafael Strawick, played in League One (third division) as a member of Ipswich Town in the English Championship (second division) to strengthen their inferiority in height. Defender Elkan Baggot, who is on loan from Bristol City, has been called in urgently. Bagot, who has a British father and an Indonesian mother, was unable to join during the U-23 Asian Cup due to opposition from his team, but was recently able to be called up after the League One schedule ended. However, it has been reported that Ipswich Town, the original team, has not yet given a confirmation regarding Baggott’s joining. Shin Tae-Yong-ho’s concern is the players’ declining stamina. Unlike Guinea, which only prepared intercontinental POs, Indonesia played a total of six games in the U-23 Asian Cup and traveled to Paris. Shin Tae-yong, who arrived in Paris on the 5th, is preparing for the Guinea match through the team rest. 안전 슬롯사이트
