NOBARTV.CO.ID STY's response after failing to make it to the Olympics, Shin Tae-yong finally responded regarding his team's failure to advance to the 2024 Paris Olympics. The South Korean coach responded by giving confidence to qualify the Garuda squad for a much higher event.

U23 no longer has any hope of qualifying for the 2024 Paris Olympics. The three options that Ivar Jenner et al have to qualify for this event are all closed.

The first option is to qualify for the final of the 23 U2024 Asian Cup. In this event, the Garuda squad is already in the semifinals. Unfortunately, in an important match against Uzbekistan, they lost with a final score of 2-0.

Likewise when they have a chance at the second option. In the match against Iraq in the battle for third place, they again lost with a final score of 2-1. If they win over Iraq, the Garuda squad will certainly advance to the finals of the 2024 Paris Olympics. However, because they lost to the team from the Middle East, they will have to undergo a play-off match which can also be called the third option.
