There is a secret weapon of Indonesia that is unknown and unstoppable.

It is the ultra-long-range throw-in of Pratama Arhan, a “human dialysis machine.”

South Korea’s under-23 (U-23) national soccer team led by head coach Hwang Sun-hong will meet Indonesia led by head coach Shin Tae-yong in the quarterfinals of the 2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-23 Asian Cup and the 2024 Paris Olympics final Asian qualifying round at Abdullah bin Khalifa Stadium in Doha, Qatar, at 2:30 a.m. on the 26th (Korea time).

What should be wary of in the match against Indonesia is fast and threatening counterattacks that emerge from teamwork. Based on solid teamwork, Indonesia’s players move as promised in situations of counterattacks after defense, and instantly stir up attacks. Indonesia’s counterattacks strategy is to stage counterattacks at a fast pace that allows the opponent team’s defense to scramble, and to take advantage of gaps in the game to get effective hits.

However, Indonesia has another secret weapon. It is Arhan’s ultra-long throw-in.

Arhan, a member of the Suwon FC in the K-League, is famous for his fast feet and ability to attack through daredevil dribbles, but he is also famous for his ultra-long-range throw-in ability with a flying distance of 40 meters or more. Arhan’s ultra-long-range throw-in is not just a long distance to throw the ball, but also good at flying the ball.

It is a throw-in that reminds fans of Rory Delap, who played for Stoke City in the past, a name that overseas soccer fans have heard of. Delap’s throw-in was so famous that there was a situation where the teams that faced Stoke at the time chose to concede a corner kick rather than a throw-in, but Arhan’s throw-in is as powerful as Delap.

For this reason, Arhan’s throw-in is considered the secret weapon of the Indonesian national team. Playing on the left side, Arhan sometimes goes to the other side and throws a ball when Indonesia gets a throw-in opportunity from the other side. Even if they get a throw-in from a position just over the half-line, Indonesian players believe in Arhan’s ultra-long-range throw-in and enter the box to position themselves.

You may wonder why you can’t stop the ball thrown by hand when you block the ball coming up from corner kicks or free kicks, but Arhan’s throw-in is literally a ‘know-and-not’ attack pattern. 유흥알바

Coach Shin Tae-yong, who coaches Arhan in the Indonesian national team (A national team) and U-23 national teams, also said in an interview with Expots News shortly after the first round match against Qatar that the trajectory of the ball flying from the opponent’s defenders and goalkeepers seems to be quite difficult to deal with.
