“Unfortunately we conceded at the last minute. But overall our game is improving, the players’ stamina is also getting better. However, power We will polish and repair the players again, “Shin Tae-yong was quoted as saying from the official PSSI website.
After facing Qatar twice, Indonesia in the next match will try out the strengths of Bosnia & Herzegovina. This match is scheduled to take place on Friday (25/09/2020).
