Guinea won by protecting a PK goal, advancing to the Olympic men’s soccer finals for the first time in 56 years

Indonesia, led by coach Shin Tae-yong, failed to overcome the final hurdle to advance to the Olympic men’s soccer finals for the first time in 68 years.

The Indonesian U-23 national soccer team, led by Coach Shin, lost 0-1 to Guinea in the 2024 Paris Olympic men’s soccer intercontinental playoff (PO) held in Clairefontaine, France on the 9th (local time).

Indonesia, who entered this PO after finishing fourth in the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-23 Qatar Asian Cup held until the beginning of this month, could have advanced to the Olympic finals for the first time in 68 years since the 1956 Melbourne Games if they defeated Guinea, but were blocked at the final hurdle. 카지노

Guinea, who took fourth place in the U-23 Africa Cup of Nations and then defeated Indonesia in the PO, succeeded in advancing to the Olympics for the second time in history, following the 1968 Mexico City Games.

With Guinea winning the final ticket to Paris, all 16 countries that will participate in men’s soccer at the Olympics have been confirmed.

Led by the host country, France, the United States, Dominican Republic, Spain, Israel, Ukraine, Morocco, Egypt, Mali, New Zealand, Paraguay, Argentina, Japan, Uzbekistan, Iraq, and Guinea will participate.

Guinea will compete in Group A of the Olympics against France, the United States and New Zealand.

Against Guinea, where most of the offensive and defensive players were taller than 180cm and had a large number of European players, Indonesia gave up the first goal through a penalty kick in the 29th minute of the first half.

Earlier, in the 20th minute of the first half, Indonesian captain Witan Sulaeman, who collapsed in a header contest and was showing a ‘bandage fighting spirit’ after receiving treatment, tripped Guinean striker Algasime Ba inside the penalty area and a penalty kick was awarded.

Guinean midfielder Ilash Moriba, formerly of FC Barcelona in Spain and currently playing for Getafe in the Primera Liga, stepped up as a kicker and scored a right-footed shot.

In the extra time of the first half, Ba stole the ball from an Indonesian defender and penetrated into the penalty area to create a one-on-one opportunity, but goalkeeper Hernando Ari blocked it with his foot, resulting in a one-goal lead.

Indonesia allowed another penalty kick in the 29th minute of the second half and was in danger of conceding an additional goal.
