Jakarta, CNN Indonesia —
Indonesian National team have the potential to beat Singapore in the semifinals AFF Cup 2020 and step into the finals to quench the thirst for a degree.
Winning the AFF Cup is a hope. For players, coaches, fans, administrators, or anyone who longs for the glory of the Indonesian national team.
Before approaching the title match, Shin Tae Yong’s team had to win the duel against Singapore in the semifinals.
The Lions proved their ability to compete in the AFF Cup this time. Singapore again qualified from the group stage after reaching the semifinals last time, and then becoming champions, in 2012.
Singapore’s thirst for titles is felt, which has collected four championship titles among Southeast Asian countries.
Rising up with the ability of its best players, Singapore presents a team organization and style of football that makes it difficult for the Indonesian national team.
Geographically small Singapore has talent that cannot be underestimated. Although not a big country in the history of football, Singapore has repeatedly hampered Indonesia in the competition between the two countries in the regional arena.
Especially in the AFF Cup, Singapore has a head to head advantage over Indonesia.
Under the direction of coach Tatsuma Yoshida, Singapore is back to haunt and ready to become a nightmare from Shin’s passionate Indonesian spirit.
Singapore has a different quality compared to the three teams that were defeated by Ricky Kambuaya and his friends. Singapore’s preparations are more or less the same as Indonesia, which underwent training camps abroad before competing.
The result can be seen with the success of being runner-up, as well as defeating the Philippines in the competition as a companion to Thailand, who is still the king of Southeast Asian football.
Singapore with Yoshida seemed to answer Shin’s challenge in the first leg. Hariss Harun and his friends reacted to stop the Indonesian national team from playing quite well in the first half.
Singapore was then able to threaten goalkeeper Nadeo Argawinata and avoid defeat so that the second leg will most likely present a tempestuous match.
There is no player who really stands out with the ability to dribble like Lionel Messi, but Singapore has players who are able to play compact and understand how to play Yoshida. A strength worth watching out for if a team already understands the coach’s will.
