“I think the euphoria is over. Now we are preparing again for events next,” Erick told the media at the U-22 National Team victory celebration at Gelora Bung Karno (GBK), Jakarta, Friday (19/5/2023).

Erick said appreciation was commonplace for Young Garudas who managed to bring home a gold medal. However, Erick did not want the euphoria that occurred to be overly responded to so that the players felt satisfied.

“This should not let our national team be praised for flying, later criticized for falling. This is what we have to guard against. We really have to prepare. These young people will become the core of the development of the future national team,” said Erick.
