3 Young Players Worth Calling Shin Tae-yong to the Indonesian National Team, Number 1 Mainstay of Persib Bandung: Okezone Bola

TIMNAS Indonesia has confirmed itself to qualify for the 2023 Asian Cup. This is an achievement because the Indonesian national team last performed at the Asian Cup in 2007 ago.

With less than a year before the tournament, the Indonesian national team had time to prepare as best they could. Shin Tae-yong also has the opportunity to see the best players he can bring in the 2023 Asian Cup. Here are three young players who deserve to be called up by Shin Tae-yong to the Indonesian national team:

3. Ricky Fajrin

Bali United’s Ricky Fajrin will start this list. This one player can play in any position in defense, but he usually plays as a left back.

When Bali United won Liga 1 2021-2022, Ricky Fajrin scored two goals and six assists in 33 appearances. Ricky Fajrin’s quality can strengthen the defense of the Indonesian national team in the 2023 Asian Cup.

2. Todd Rivaldo Ferre

Next, there is the new PSS Sleman player, Todd Rivaldo Ferre. The 23-year-old attacking midfielder has been known since he played for the Indonesian U-19 national team several years ago.

Todd Ferre has the ability to process the ball very well. Unfortunately, he was suspended for a year starting in November 2021. However, he was able to play in the 2022 President’s Cup because it was only a pre-season tournament.

When the sanctions against him are over and Todd Ferre is able to perform well with PSS, he deserves a chance from Shin Tae-yong. Todd Ferre’s explosive power can be a differentiator on the front lines of the Indonesian national team.

1. Beckham Son

The first position is occupied by Persib Bandung’s young attacking midfielder, Beckham Putra. The 20-year-old player surprisingly often won the trust of Persib coach, Robert Rene Alberts, in Liga 1 last season.

Appearing 24 times for Persib last season, Bekcham Putra scored five goals and three assists. If his performance is consistent, Beckham is certainly worth a try to strengthen the Indonesian national team.
