Jakarta, CNN Indonesia —
Indonesian U-20 National Team will face tough opponents Iraq in the inaugural match of group A 2023 U-20 Asian Cup. Here are five key players for Indonesia against Iraq.
Coach Shin Tae Yong certainly has to rack his brain harder ahead of this fight. The absence of Zanadin Fariz due to injury has reduced the strength in midfield.

Ferrari has stock of calm as a defender. He is also strong in aerial duels and a difficult player to beat in one-on-one duels.

Dony continues to show good progress in his game. Doni also demonstrated this ever-increasing ability when the U-20 Indonesian National Team appeared in a mini-tournament.
