Shin Tae-yong’s voyage is not over yet. Now, he has to move to play an intercontinental playoff.

At 12:30 a.m. on Tuesday (Korea time), Indonesia and Iraq had a showdown in the third-place match of the 2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Qatar U-23 Asian Cup. The result was a 2-1 victory for Iraq. Indonesia scored the first goal. Indonesia’s Ivar Jenner scored the first goal in the 19th minute of the first half. However, Iraq came from behind to win the game. Iraq turned the game around with consecutive goals by Zayed Thahsin in the 27th minute of the first half and Ali Jasim in the 6th minute of extra time. Iraq will advance directly to the 2024 Paris Olympics.

Indonesia, led by head coach Shin Tae-yong, will not be able to go to the Paris Olympics due to Asian qualifiers. However, since the team has advanced to the semifinals, it will have one last chance. Indonesia will have one final match against Guinea on September 9 for a ticket to the Olympic finals. Indonesia in Asia and Guinea in Africa will face off at the Klerfontaine National Football Institute in France. Anyway, both Indonesia and Guinea are going to France for now.

Coach Shin Tae-yong raised his reputation by playing the U-23 Asian Cup. Indonesian soccer fans gave a generous round of applause to Team Korea’s Shin Tae-yong, who made it to the semifinals by winning repeatedly. When they passed the group round and advanced to the quarterfinals, they even shouted “Shin Tae-yong, Shin Tae-yong,” even before the game was over.

The highlight was when they subdued Korea, which was led by Hwang Sun-hong, in the quarterfinals. Indonesia once had a 2-1 lead over Korea, which was a contender for the title, and went on to shoot out a penalty shootout, but they managed to subdue Korea by displaying concentration there as well. Shin Tae-yong, the coach, showed off his ambition to advance to the semifinals by fostering Indonesia, which was once a relatively weak team, by defeating Korea, a powerful team. It was the first time that Indonesia made it to the semifinals of the U-23 Asian Cup. 안전놀이터

Despite consecutive losses to Uzbekistan and Iraq after advancing to the semifinals, coach Shin Tae-yong and Indonesia are still strong. Attention is focusing on whether he will be able to win a ticket to the Olympic finals while breathing in the air of France at the last opportunity.
