3 Scenarios for Indonesia to Qualify for the 3 World Cup

NOBARTV.CO.ID 3 scenarios: Indonesia passes the third round , is scheduled to host the Philippines in the 2026 World Cup Qualification match tonight. There are three scenarios that are arranged as conditions for Indonesia to qualify for the next (third) round in the 2026 World Cup Qualification event.

For the second time in a row, the Garuda Indonesia squad will play at GBK in the 2026 World Cup Qualification event for the Asian zone, second round of Group F. Previously, in the middle of last week, Shin Tae-yong's team hosted the strong Iraqi team. Unfortunately, in the match against Ali Jasim et al, Marselino Ferdinan et al lost with a final score of 0-2. The Mesopotamian Lions' two goals at that time were scored by Ali Jasim and Aymen Hussein.

In fact, if the Indonesian national team is able to win over Iraq, then they will automatically seal a place in the third round of the 2026 World Cup Qualification round. Unfortunately, they actually lost at home. As an example, if the Garuda squad wins at that time, then the points they will get are 10. With this number of points (10), Indonesia is certain to accompany Iraq to the next round.

But unfortunately, now fate has changed so that Indonesia's scenario for qualifying for the next round is also affected. However, there are still three options for the Garuda squad to be able to accompany the team of Jesus Casas (Iraq coach) to the third round of the 2026 World Cup Qualifiers. What are they? Here are three scenarios:

1. Indonesia Achieves Victory

Currently, the Garuda squad has collected 7 points from five matches. And if in the match against the Philippines they are able to crush the resistance of Tom Saintfiet's men, then the Garuda squad will certainly advance to the next round.

This is because Indonesia's current points are 7. With the addition of three points to 10, Vietnam, which currently has 6 points, will certainly not be able to catch the Garuda squad's runner-up position.

2. Indonesia Draws

Even though the Indonesian National Team will draw in the next match, Shin Tae-yong's team still has a chance to advance to the third round. However, they could qualify on the condition that Vietnam, which already had 6 points, collapsed at the Iraqi headquarters. If this scenario plays out, Indonesia will get 8 points while Vietnam will still get 6.

3. Indonesia experiences defeat

Interestingly, Indonesia is also certain to qualify for the next round even though they lost. However, this method can be achieved with the same conditions as the second point. The Iraqi national team must beat Vietnam so that this (qualifying) option can work.
