ONE group in 2023 Asian U-17 Cup Qualificationthis is the reason Indonesian National Team U-16 will embarrass the Malaysian U-16 national team. For your information, the U-16 Indonesian national team is in Group B of the 2023 U-17 Asian Cup Qualification with Malaysia, Palestine, Guam and the United Arab Emirates.

Even though they are part of the tough group, the U-16 Indonesian National Team has the advantage. This is because all Group B matches for the U-17 2023 Asian Cup Qualification which took place on October 1-9, 2022, were held at the Pakansari Stadium, Bogor.

Just like the 2023 U-20 Asian Cup Qualifiers, only the winners and the five best runners-up will be allowed to qualify for the finals. Therefore, it is important for the U-16 Indonesian National Team to wipe out all matches with a win.

Of the four opponents of the U-16 Indonesian national team in Group B, Malaysia is practically the most highlighted. Because, Indonesia and Malaysia have a hot rivalry, especially in the world of football.

Because of the heat, the meeting of the Indonesian and Malaysian national teams is considered the El Clasico of Southeast Asia. The Indonesian U-16 and Malaysian national teams will meet in the final Group B match which will take place on Sunday, September 9, 2022 evening WIB.

Since they met in the final match, of course the results in that match will determine whether the two teams can qualify for the 2023 U-17 Asian Cup finals or not. However, the Indonesian U-16 national team is more favored to win the match over Malaysia.

It has already been shown Indonesian National Team U-16 during the 2022 AFF U-16 Cup which was held at the Maguwoharjo Stadium. Playing at home, the Garuda Asia squad came out as champions after winning 1-0 over Vietnam.

The second factor is of course the quality of the players. Apart from the cohesiveness of the team, the U-16 Indonesian National Team has qualified individual qualities. In addition to Nabil Asyura and Kafiatur Rizky who are known to be sharp, there is also the captain Muhammad Iqbal who is known to be strong in building defenses.

This is different from Malaysia which does not have prominent players. Even their top scorer in the 2022 AFF U-16 Cup, Muhammad Anjasmirza Saharuddin and Faris Mohd Asrul only scored two goals.
