The 0-4 defeat against the Vietnamese team has dealt a rather heavy psychological blow to the young Indonesian players. Meanwhile, head coach Shin Tae-yong himself has not lost his anger even though this defeat has passed for 2 days.
On social networks, the Korean strategist once again questioned the decision of the referee team in the match against the Vietnamese team.
Specifically, coach Shin Tae-yong re-posted the situation that took place in the 71st minute, when an Indonesian player hit the crossbar and hit the goal of Tan Truong, followed by a chaotic situation in the middle of the penalty area.
Coach Shin Tae-yong thinks that Indonesia deserves a penalty in that situation because Duy Manh fouled Egy Maulana in the penalty area. But instead of a penalty, the referee pulled out a yellow card for Mr. Shin Tae-yong.
The Korean strategist has not stopped being annoyed after 2 days. Do you think he should not ask for a penalty for the home team?
“I also did not run out of the technical area of Indonesia. Then why did the referee cover up his mistake by giving me a yellow card?”, the Indonesian coach shared on his personal page.
Earlier in the post-match interview, coach Shin Tae-yong also criticized the referee’s decision. He said that the decision to recognize Tien Linh’s first goal caused the Indonesian players to lose their rhythm, leading to the match breaking.
The yellow card that coach Shin Tae-yong received was the second time in this year’s World Cup qualifiers, the strategist was booked. That means that the Indonesian players will not be able to have this coach’s direction in the next match against the UAE.
