Set Another Record, STY Back to Back Brings Indonesia to Qualify for the Asian Cup

NOBARTV.CO.ID STY back to back to the Asian Cup, Indonesian National Team Coach from South Korea Shin Tae-yong successfully brought the Garuda squad to the Asian Cup. This success is the second time in a row.

In 2024, the Garuda squad will appear at several prestigious events. One of the events the Indonesian national team is participating in is the 2023 Asian Cup in Qatar. This Garuda squad's participation is the first time since the last time in 2007.

Interestingly, in 2007, the Garuda squad was hosted by three other Southeast Asian countries. The biggest football event in Asia in 2007, which was held from 7 – 29 July, was held in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam. But unfortunately, of the four host teams, only Vietnam managed to qualify from the group phase.

Until then, many years later, the Garuda squad competed again in this event. In 2024, Indonesia will return to play after a long absence. The success of the Indonesian National Team in appearing at this event cannot be separated from the role of coach Shin Tae-yong. Joined in group A of the 2023 Asian Cup Qualification with Kuwait, Jordan and Nepal, Marselino Ferdinan et al managed to lock in a ticket to the 2023 Asian Cup after finishing in second place, aka runners-up.

The return of the Garuda squad is also quite special because at the 2023 Asian Cup yesterday, for the first time, Indonesia qualified for the round of 16. Even though in the round of 16 they were humiliated by Australia 4-0, their success in advancing to the knock-out phase is something to be grateful for. Moreover, the 2023 Asian Cup is the biggest event that Indonesia has ever participated in with Shin Tae-yong as the coach.

What is even more amazing is that the Garuda squad is again certain to appear in the next edition of the Asian Cup. It is known that the Asian Cup will be held again in 2027. So, why was the Indonesian National Team able to appear at this event - even though the implementation time is still far away?

So, yesterday, Shin Tae-yong's squad appeared in the second round of the 2026 World Cup Qualifications in the Asian zone. And at the end of the second round, the Garuda squad locked up a place in the third round after finishing in second place in the final standings of Group F. Throughout the group phase in the second round, the Indonesian National Team managed to score 10 points so they could accompany Iraq to the round (round) third.

Of the 36 teams that competed in the second round yesterday, including the Indonesian National Team - there were 18 teams (champions and runners-up) who qualified for the third round. And what's interesting is, the 18 teams that qualify are not only entitled to compete again in the World Cup Qualifiers. However, they also have the right to appear in the 2027 Asian Cup finals without participating in the qualifying rounds as before.

Thus, Shin Tae-yong can be said to be successful because he succeeded in bringing the Indonesian national team back to back to the most prestigious football event in Asia.
