FERGANA – The final standings for Group A for the 2023 U-20 Asian Cup are known. The U-20 Indonesian national team (Timnas) failed to advance to the quarter-finals after placing third.
All the last matches in Group A of the 2023 U-20 Asian Cup took place on Tuesday (7/3/2023) evening. As a result, Iraq U-20 drew 1-1 with Syria U-20 at the Lokomotiv Stadium, Tashkent.
Meanwhile Uzbekistan U-20 played goalless with Indonesia U-20 at Istiqlol Stadium, Fergana.
Despite sharing the results, Uzbekistan U-20 as the host won Group A. They collected seven points from two wins and one draw.
Meanwhile, Iraq U-20 finished runner-up with four points. Then Indonesia U-20 is in third place with the same points as Iraq U-20.
Even though they have the same points as Iraq U-20, Garuda Nusantara -nicknamed the U-20 Indonesian National Team – had to settle for third place after losing head-to-head.
As a result, the Mesopotamian Lions -nicknamed the Iraqi National Team – accompanied Uzbekistan U-20 to advance to the knockout rounds.
In fact, Indonesia U-20 can advance to the quarter-finals if they can win 1-0 over Uzbekistan U-20.
However, until the match was over, Indonesia U-20 was unable to score a goal. This made Shin Tae-yong’s team have to lift their luggage from the 2023 U-20 Asian Cup. Meanwhile, Syria U-20 finished fourth with one point.
