Erick Thohir asks the U-23 national team to take advantage of the last opportunity to go to the Olympics

Jakarta, Beritasatu.com – General Chair of the Indonesian Football Association (PSSI) Erick Thohir asked the U-23 Indonesian National Team to take advantage of the last opportunity to appear at the 2024 Olympics.

The Garuda Muda troops' progress to the 2024 Paris Olympics was delayed after being defeated by Iraq 1-2 in the match for third place in the AFC U-23 Asian Cup at the Abdullah bin Khalifa Stadium, Doha, Qatar, Thursday (2/5/2024). These results made the Indonesian U-23 National Team finish in 4th place.

This defeat meant that Garuda Muda had to undergo a playoff match against fourth place in the 2023 U-23 Africa Cup of Nations, Guinea, on 9 May 2024 at the Center National du Football Clairefontaine Stadium, Paris in order to win a ticket to the 2024 Olympics.

“We still have to fight. We have to make the most of the last opportunity to appear at the Olympics. Rise up and make Indonesia proud,” said Ericks, quoted from his official account, Saturday (4/5/2024).

Indonesia's opportunity, continued Erick, to appear at the Olympics is still open. Garuda Muda had to fight in the match against Guinea as the last chance to appear at the world's biggest sporting event.

Apart from that, Erick also said that football is not a game between two people. “We fall together and rise together, football is not a game of two people, a game of 11 people,” he said.

Erick Thohir's words are also closely related to the game of Marselino Ferdinan, who is currently in the public spotlight because he appeared individualistic against Iraq. Erick asked the players to lower their egos and play like a solid team like at the start of the U-23 Asian Cup.

“There is still one chance, you have to play again as a team,” said Erick Thohir.

Erick Thohir also asked about the players' commitment to still wanting to advance to the 2024 Paris Olympics. “All moments must be utilized, do you still want to play? Come on fight back come on. Your hard work has been exhausted, you have one more game give up“Don't, you will regret it for the rest of your life,” concluded the former President of Inter Milan.
