Both teams’ lineups are confirmed

Indonesia, led by head coach Shin Tae-yong, and Japan, which has coach Moriyasu Hajime, are set to play their third Group C match of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Qatar Asian Cup at Altumama Stadium in Doha, Qatar on the 24th.

Both teams cannot afford to back down. Both teams lost to Iraq, failing to secure No. 1 ranking in their group. As things stand now, both teams ranking second or third in their group are eligible. The second-ranked in the group will go straight to the round of 16, while the third-ranked in their group will be the top four teams among the third-ranked teams in their respective groups. There is also a chance that the third-ranked team in Group C could be eliminated. This is why the two teams call their duel a “single-log match.”

Indonesia’s coach Shin Tae-yong formed a lineup of Pratama Arhan, Rizki Ramadhani, Jordi Amat, Sandy Walsh, Justin Huibner, Marcelino Ferdinand, Eggy Maulana, Ivar Jenner, Jakob Sayuri and Raphael Strawe, led by goalkeeper Hernando Arie.

Japan’s head coach Moriyasu Hajime started with Suzuki Zaion goalkeeper Yuto Nakayama, Koki Machida, Takehiro Tomiyasu, Mikuma Seiya, Wataru Endo, Hidesama Morita, Doan Ritz, Keito Nakamura, Takefusa Kubo and Ayase Ueda.
