Reports of Indonesian Strikers Taken to the Matches against Iraq and the Philippines, Who is the Best?

NOBARTV.CO.ID The following is the Indonesian striker's report card for , Shin Tae-yong brought in several strikers for the two 2026 World Cup Qualification matches. How are the forward players doing?

Some time ago, Shin Tae-yong summoned 22 of his best players to take part in the 2026 World Cup Qualification match in the Asian zone, second round of Group F. In this match, the Garuda squad was scheduled to compete in two matches. The first match was against a team from the Middle East, Iraq, while the second match was against ASEAN team Philippines.

Through these two matches, the fate of the Garuda squad will truly be determined. Because if Ivar Jenner et al manage to win in just one match, then Shin Tae-yong's team will definitely advance to the third round. Why?

So, currently, Indonesia has collected 7 points from four matches. The number of points obtained made the Garuda squad sit in second place. Meanwhile, in third place or the closest team to Indonesia, namely Vietnam, the team nicknamed The Golden Star Warriors has only won 3 points. Therefore, with just one more win (bringing the points to 10), Indonesia's position will not be displaced even though Vietnam always wins in a row in the remaining two matches.
