The Indonesian Under-24 national soccer team was stunned by Chinese Taipei in their group stage match at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games, making it difficult for them to top their group and advance to the round of 16.
Indonesia fell to a 0-1 defeat against Chinese Taipei in the second leg of their Group F men’s soccer match at the Zhejiang Provincial Normal University East Stadium in Jinhua, Zhejiang Province, China, on Wednesday.
Indonesia, which won 2-0 in the first leg against Kyrgyzstan, was stunned by the underdog Chinese Taipei, putting a red flag on its hopes of topping the group and advancing to the round of 16.
The second-place finisher in Group F will be the Round of 16 opponent of Group E favorite South Korea.
Indonesian soccer is somewhat familiar to Korean fans, with Shin Tae-yong having coached the South Korean national team.
Shin is currently in charge of Indonesia’s A and U-23 national teams.
The U-24 team that competed in the Asian Games is led by Siafri Indra, who also served as Indonesia’s technical commissioner, and local media often view Indra and Shin as rivals.
Shin, who led Indonesia to the top of Group K in the 2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-23 Asian Cup qualifiers earlier this month and qualified for the main tournament, plans to return to South Korea for a break soon. 토토사이트
