Coach Shin Tae-yong, who leads the Indonesian national soccer team, has confirmed the extension of his contract until 2027.
The Indonesian Football Association announced on its official social media on the 28th that it has renewed its contract with Shin until 2027.

Eric Tohir, president of the Indonesian Football Association, also posted a picture with Shin on his social media and announced, “The national team will work together to succeed and develop to shine on the world stage.”

Shin confirmed the renewal of his contract by posting a comment on Tohir’s post, saying, “I will work with Eric until 2027. Please support Indonesian soccer.”

Coach Shin has been in charge of the Indonesian national team since December 2019 and has made great achievements.

Indonesia, led by him, won the runner-up prize at the 2020 ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Cup, advanced to the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup finals, and advanced to the first tournament (round of 16).

Indonesia’s U-23 national team, which is also headed by Shin, won the U-23 Asian Cup in April this year after a penalty shootout in the quarterfinals against South Korea, which was led by then coach Hwang Sun-hong (current coach of Daejeon Hana Citizen), preventing South Korea from advancing to the Olympic finals for 10 consecutive times. 안전놀이터

Later, the U-23 Asian Cup finished fourth and failed to advance to the Olympic finals after losing to Guinea in the subsequent intercontinental playoff, but the adult national team made another breakthrough as it confirmed its advance to the third Asian qualifying round for the 2026 North-Central America World Cup during the June A-match.

Indonesia, the only Southeast Asian country to advance to the third qualifying round, was drawn into Group C with Japan, Australia, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and China. The third qualifying round will begin in September.
