STY Reveals National Team Plans After U-20 World Cup Canceled in Indonesia

Jakarta, CNN Indonesia —

Shin Tae Yong revealed his plans for the Indonesian national team after the 2023 U-20 World Cup was canceled in Indonesia.

The tactician from South Korea still has the determination to make new history for Indonesian football. FIFA Matchday and the 2023 Asian Cup will be his focus for the short term.

“There is a FIFA Matchday in June and the upcoming Asian Cup. I will prepare the senior team so that later we can take part in the senior World Cup because at the next World Cup Asia has eight tickets. I will try to make new history in ASEAN,” said STY at the Sultan Hotel Jakarta, Thursday (30/3).



On the one hand, the 51-year-old coach spoke out about the fate of his contract, which expires in December 2023, while the 2023 Asian Cup is scheduled to roll out in January 2024.

“To be honest, I can’t answer that yet because there hasn’t been any talk of extending the contract,” he said.

On the one hand, STY still hopes that Indonesia can play in the 2023 U-20 World Cup even though host status is no longer available. Because of that he wants to continue to carry out the training program with his foster children.

“Even though we were removed from the World Cup, we still have the potential to become participants in any country. Training will continue normally and after the world cup is over I will focus on the senior national team,” said STY.

Previously, FIFA stated that Indonesia would not be the host of the 2023 U-20 World Cup. This certainty was conveyed by FIFA in an official statement on Wednesday (29/3).

The current situation is the reason FIFA crossed out Indonesia from holding the 2023 U-20 World Cup. FIFA will soon choose a new host in the near future.
