Although they did not advance to the quarterfinals, just reaching the tournament stage was a brilliant achievement for Indonesian soccer.

Coach Shin, who has been leading Indonesia since 2020 and has achieved good results such as runner-up in the 2020 Southeast Asian Football Federation (AFF) Championship and bronze medal in the 2021 Southeast Asian Games, has further solidified his position in the Indonesian soccer world by advancing to the round of 16.

The Indonesian fans who almost occupied the 15,000-seat Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium, the second-smallest stadium in this tournament, passionately chanted cheers for the players and coach Shin even as the defeat deepened in the second half.

Indonesia actively put pressure on Australia, ranked 25th in the FIFA rankings and considered a favorite to win the tournament, from the beginning.

In the 6th minute of the first half, Indonesia also made a unfortunate scene, such as Justin Hubner’s cross from the left, which Raphael Strike finished with a right-footed non-stop shot that ended up in the top net.

However, they conceded their first goal in the 12th minute of the first half due to Elkan Bagot’s own goal.

A low cross from the right by Australia’s Jackson Irvine hit Bagot’s foot and headed toward the goal.

Indonesia confidently faced Australia even after conceding a meaningless first goal.

In the 39th minute of the first half, Yakov Sayuri’s volley shot following Marcelino Ferdinan’s cross missed the goal, and two minutes later, Ferdinan’s bold long-range shot missed the goal.

Australia, which had been calmly increasing its possession, scored an additional goal with a side attack in the 45th minute of the first half.

Martin Boyle, who was rushing from the other side, finished a cross from Gesin Jones from the right with a diving header, hitting the Indonesian net.

Indonesia, which fought well in the second half, lost consecutive goals to Craig Goodwin in the 44th minute and Harry Souta in the 46th minute.
