TRIBUNKALTIM.CO – Shin Tae-yong is certain to have more freedom to mix up the composition of the Indonesian National Team.

The reason is, the Garuda squad has the potential to get 3 new naturalized players ahead of their opponent against Vietnam.

These two Southeast Asian giants will compete in the 2026 World Cup Qualification event.

Check out the predicted line-up for the Indonesian National Team against Vietnam.

PSSI is working on Thom Haye and Ragnar Oratmangoen to play against Vietnam in the second round of the 2026 World Cup Qualifications in the Asia Zone.

The match between the Indonesian national team and Vietnam will be held twice in March next month.

The Indonesian national team hosts Vietnam at the Gelora Bung Karno Main Stadium, Senayan, Jakarta on March 21 2024.

Meanwhile Vietnam hosts the Indonesian national team at My Dinh National Stadium, on March 26 2026.

“What is certain is that we, together with the Secretary General (Yunus Nusi) and Mr Arya (Sinulingga) will ensure that the Thom Haye and Ragnar process can be completed by mid-March,” said Erick Thohir.

“So they can perform against Vietnam.”

“That was naturalization first,” he said.

If the naturalization of Thom Haye and Ragnar Oratmangoen is timely, it will certainly increase the strength of the Indonesian national team.

Thom Haye can play as a central midfielder or defender in the Indonesian national team line-up.
