SOLO – Indonesian U-23 National Team player, Elkan Baggott, spoke about the chances of the Indonesian U-23 National Team to qualify for the 2024 Paris Olympics. According to him, appearing at the 2024 Olympics will be an extraordinary experience for him and his teammates.
The Indonesian U-23 national team is currently in a close position to advance to the finals of the 2024 U-23 Asian Cup. This tournament is a way for them to win tickets to appear at the 2024 Paris Olympics.
Before discussing opportunities at the 2024 Paris Olympics, the Indonesian U-23 National Team must go through a very important qualifying match against Turkmenistan U-23. This match will be held at Manahan Stadium, Solo on Tuesday (12/9/2023).
If the U-23 Indonesian National Team manages to qualify for the 2024 U-23 Asian Cup finals, they will have the opportunity to win one of three tickets to the Paris Olympics in that tournament. Elkan Baggott evaluated the potential of Garuda Muda in this international multi-event.
Baggott stated that playing in the 2024 Paris Olympics would be an incredible experience. However, he tried not to think too much about the future and focused more on the match against Turkmenistan U-23.
“Playing in the Olympics will be a great experience. We will take one step at a time to achieve it, and see how we will perform,” said Elkan Baggott as reported on the official website of his club, Ipswich Town, Monday (11/9/2023).
Because of this, Elkan Baggott hopes that his colleagues will perform optimally in the match against Turkmenistan U-23. For him, the 2024 U-23 Asian Cup is a rare opportunity that the Indonesian U-23 National Team has never experienced before.
“This is a big match. To qualify for the Asian Cup is our opportunity to compete on the Asian stage, which we have never experienced before in the past. This is a very important moment for us,” he said.
