The Indonesian national team managed to reverse various predictions that said they would be eliminated in the group phase of the AFF Cup 2020. The Garuda squad successfully qualified for the semifinals and even won the status of Group B. Berita Terkini
One of the players who played a big role in the explosive performance of the Red and White Team was Pratama Arhan. He became the most prominent player, especially in the duel against the Malaysian national team in the final match of Group B.
In that match, Indonesia destroyed its allied country with a landslide score of 4-1 in a duel at the National Stadium, Singapore, Sunday 19 December 2021.
Irfan Jaya’s brace plus goals from Arhan and Elkan Baggott brought Shin Tae-yong’s troops to fly high in the 2020 AFF Cup group phase. Meanwhile, Malaysia could only score through Kogileswaran Raj’s kick. Berita Olahraga
Yes, not only messed up the Malayan Tiger’s defense, he also listed his name on the scoreboard. Inevitably, Arhan became man of the match in the party after appearing very dominant on the left side of the Garuda squad attack.
That being said, the process of creating it is very beautiful and amazing. He shot the ball which dived sharply into the goal and tricked Khairul Fahmi who had difficulty reaching it.
The goal is arguably very astonishing. In fact, the AFF Cup commentators from international broadcasts were wide-eyed and surprised by the goals created by the 20-year-old player.
All eyes that saw the goal did not hesitate to label it as a world-class goal. The AFF also included Arhan’s goal as the nominee for the best goal in the 2020 AFF Cup group stage.
It is even more interesting because Arhan’s performance in the 2020 AFF Cup could be a turning point in his career. The reason is, with individual skills like that, it would be very unfortunate if Arhan only played in domestic competitions.
He has great potential to follow Egy Maulana Vikri and Witan Sulaeman in a career abroad, one of which is Europe. The opportunity is even greater considering that Arhan is under the auspices of a Level Up Asia agent who also handles Egy and Witan. Berita Dunia
It will be interesting to follow whether in the future Arhan will shine even more and be able to increase the number of Indonesian players playing in Europe? Politik Eropa dan Prusia
