‘Physical-goal decision’ inferiority… Shin Tae-yong’s Indonesia, Australia lost by 4 goals

Indonesia, led by head coach Shin Tae-yong, lost 0-4 in the round of 16 of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup against Australia at 8:30 p.m. on the 28th (Korea Standard Time) at Jasim bin Hamad Stadium in Doha, Qatar.

Australia, which passed the round of 16, will face the winner of Korea-Saudi Arabia in the quarterfinals on the 31st.

Indonesia’s performance… reveals poor goal-getting ability

Australia launched a 4-3-3 formation. Matthew Ryan defended the goal, and Aziz Behich – Kai Rawls – Harry Sutta – Gassin Jones formed the defensive line. Jackson Irvine – Kyle Bakers – Lily McGree was in the midfield, and Jordan Bose – Bruno Fornaoli – Martin Boyle played as the front three-top.

At the beginning of the game, Indonesia unexpectedly raised the line and tried to attack strongly. In the 5th minute of the first half, Straweke connected a low cross from the left with an exquisite shot, but it missed the goal.

However, the flow of the game went to Australia in the 12th minute of the first half. Irvine’s right footed shot that penetrated the right side of the penalty area was deflected off Bagot and entered the goal.

Australia faced Indonesia with plays that utilized physicality. Especially in competition, they had a daring physical fight. On the other hand, they were ahead in market share, but they made frequent pass misses.

Indonesia similarly lacked precision, but stood out in terms of dynamics. Huvner’s mid-range shot in the 25th minute of the first half went straight to the goalkeeper. In the 40th minute of the first half, Marcelino’s shot from outside the box floated above the goal.

Australia overwhelmed Indonesia in goal-getting. In the 45th minute, Boyle made another goal with a diving header to cross Jones from the right. The first half ended with Australia’s 2-0 lead.

Coach Shin Tae-yong stepped up his attack by taking out captain Asnaoui and scoring a lament in the 10th minute of the second half. Indonesia continued to send the ball rapidly to the Australian team.

Australia also made changes by replacing McGree and Fornaoli with Metcuff and Duke. Atkinson traded for right-back Jones and Atkinson at the 24th minute of the second half.

Indonesia’s physical strength dropped sharply past the middle of the second half. Australia didn’t miss the scoring opportunity while not overdoing it.

In the 42nd minute of the second half, Graham Arnold, who replaced Goodwin, hit the mark. In the 44th minute of the second half, Goodwin finished the ball that bounced off Irvine’s header was blocked by the goalkeeper with a left-footed volley.

In the 46th minute of the second half, Australia, which added an additional goal, returned Goodwin’s free kick to the head of Souta, ended with a four-goal victory.

‘No loss in 4 consecutive matches’ Australia to quarterfinals against South Korea-Saudi winner

Australia is one of the most promising players in the Asian Cup. Although there is no exceptional star player, Australia is good at securing practical benefits based on Arnold’s long-term leadership, excellent physical and stable defense.라바카지노주소

Australia has the potential to be negligible enough to break everyone’s expectations and achieve a surprise round of 16 at the 2022 Qatar World Cup a year ago.

Although it was not spectacular in this group stage, it topped Group B with two wins and one draw with stable teamwork.

On the other hand, coach Shin Tae-yong’s Indonesia created a new history of advancing to the first Asian Cup tournament in history, causing an underdog rebellion.

Indonesia did well against Australia. The speedy attack development and well-organized performance were impressive.

However, there was a wide gap between the two teams in physical and goal-getting ability. Leading by a gap of two goals in the first half, Australia spent the second half by performing matches focused on stability, and threw a KO punch right before the end of the match, disrupting Indonesia’s willingness to pursue the team. This was the end of Indonesia’s challenge as it failed to overcome the weight gap.

Coincidentally, Australia is Korea’s potential opponent for the quarterfinals. If Korea wins the round of 16 against Saudi Arabia, it will have a showdown with Australia for a ticket to the semifinals.

Korea has a painful memory of staying in second place in the 2015 Asian Cup final, losing 1-2 to Australia after a neck-and-neck race. It is also inferior to Australia in the match against Australia with eight wins, 11 draws and nine losses.
