STY Reveals the Reasons the Garuda Squad Didn't Play Well Against Uzbekistan

NOBARTV.CO.ID STY reveals the causes of Indonesia's defeat, U23 has just been eliminated in the semifinals of the U23 Asian Cup to the Uzbekistan National Team. After the match, coach Shin Tae-yong explained the reason why his team did not play well in the match.

The young Garuda squad's dream of creating history by qualifying for the 23 U2024 Asian Cup final has been dashed. After several surprises by qualifying from the group phase to overthrowing South Korea in the quarter-finals, their progress finally stopped at the hands of Uzbekistan.

Facing Timur Kapadze's team, the Garuda squad lost with a final score of 2-0. Initially, the Garuda squad scored first through Muhammad Ferrari's kick after taking advantage of the rebound in front of the goal. But unfortunately, not long after, the goal was declared void by VAR because Ramadhan Sananta's foot had already been caught offside.

As a result, the motivation and fighting power of the Indonesian National Team decreased drastically after the incident. They were mostly confined – not even having the trouble to attack back. The peak was when Uzbekistan finally scored a goal which was accompanied by Rizky Ridho being rewarded with a red card. It didn't end there, ten minutes before the end, bad luck again befell the Garuda squad after Pratama Arhan's own goal.
