Shin Tae-yong Indonesia is taking on its final challenge to advance to the Olympic finals for the first time in 68 years.

The Indonesian U-23 national soccer team, led by coach Shin Tae-yong, will play the 2024 Paris Olympics men's soccer playoff (PO) against Guinea in Clairefontaine, France, at 10 p.m. on the 9th.

With 15 of the 16 teams advancing to the finals having been confirmed, the final winner of the ticket to Paris will be decided in this round. 파워볼

If Indonesia wins this time, it will enter the Olympic finals again for the first time in 68 years since the 1956 Melbourne Olympics.

Shin Tae-yong ranked 4th in the 2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-23 Qatar Asian Cup, which ended on the 4th.

They created a sensation by defeating Korea under coach Hwang Seon-hong in the quarterfinals in a penalty shootout, but lost to Uzbekistan in the semifinals and Iraq in the third place match.

The top 3 players were unable to secure a direct ticket to Paris and had to compete for the final time at this intercontinental PO.

Guinea is the team that placed fourth in the 2023 U-23 Africa Cup of Nations.

In the FIFA rankings calculated based on the adult national team, Guinea is ranked 76th, 58 places higher than Indonesia (134th).

While the power gap is expected to be large, the part that Coach Shin Tae-yong is most wary of is the African team's unique 'physique'.

Most of Guinea's offensive and defensive players are over 180cm tall.

On the other hand, most Indonesians are around 170cm, except for the ‘Four Naturalized Musketeers’ from the Netherlands, including Justin Hubner, Nathan Joaone, Ivar Jenner, and Rafael Strawick.

In order to strengthen his team's height, coach Shin Tae-yong is trying to urgently add Elkan Baggot, who played for Ipswich Town in the English Championship (second division) and on loan from Bristol City in League One (third division) this season.

Baggot, who was born to a British father and an Indonesian mother, is a 196cm tall center back who has been called up by Shin Tae-yong since 2020.

Shin Tae-yong was unable to use him in the U-23 Asian Cup because his team did not let him go, but since the League One schedule was completed with the game last weekend, there does not seem to be any particular obstacle to his selection this time.

However, the Indonesian Football Association did not receive confirmation from Ipswich Town regarding the call-up until the 7th.

The position is that they will wait until the morning of the 8th, European time.

Shin Tae-yong entered Paris on the night of the 5th.

Shin Tae-yong, who played a total of 6 games until the 3rd place match and gave his key players a good rest after running out of stamina, is in the final quenching after entering Paris.
