Suara.com – The Indonesian national team has an abundant stock of hereditary players who play as defenders, from center backs to wing backs.
Under the command of Shin Tae-yong, the Indonesian National Team continues to rely on hereditary players who are selected based on strict selection.
It’s not just a matter of playing skill, the player’s status and background also have a significant impact on the players selected.
Apart from that, being solid in playing is an absolute requirement, especially playing under the tutelage of the coach from South Korea, Shin Tae-yong.
These hereditary players are not selected haphazardly, but rather through a process that is very strict and not haphazard.
So who are the hereditary players who play as defenders? The following is a list of them.
Elkan Baggott and Jordi Amat, two defenders from different generations who are very valuable for the Indonesian national team not only now but also in the future.
Jordi Amat currently has the status of a mainstay player for the Indonesian National Team. At his age, valuable experience can be passed on to young players.
One of them is Elkan Baggott, who occupies the same position, namely central defender, and Jordi is a reflection of the current and future defenders.
Even though they still have to compete with a number of domestic talents, such as Rizky Ridho and Wahyu Praestyo.
Apart from that, the Indonesian National Team will still be strengthened by a new player, Jay Idzes, with the naturalization process which will soon be completed.
Sandy Walsh and Shayne Pattynama are players who have adapted to the current Indonesian National Team game.
The quality of their playing made these two players immediately become idols of Indonesian football fans.
Apart from these two, the Indonesian National Team will also soon welcome two players of other descent in the wing-back position.
Namely Justin Hubner and Nathan Tjoe-A-On, the naturalization process for both of them is underway and is expected to be completed before the 2023 Asian Cup is held.
