Learning Valuable Lessons from Mistakes

According to Director of Football #GarudaSelect, Dennis Wise, there are positive and negative things that can be used as a reference for future improvements.

The second match of the third batch of #GarudaSelect in England against Mansfield Town U18, Tuesday (6/4), ended in a 2-2 draw. According to Director of Football #GarudaSelect, Dennis Wise, there are positive and negative things that can be used as a reference for future improvements.


"Overall I am satisfied with the team play, although I am quite disappointed with some mistakes. Actually we had reminded the players, but unfortunately they forgot about it. Some players didn’t know what to do when they had the ball. We have to fix this," said Coach Dennis .


Left behind when it is just one minute from the start, #GarudaSelect managed to get back up and led by 2-1 thanks to Rafli Asrul's spectacular corner ('13) and a beautiful goal from Ridho Syuhada Putra's measured shot (‘70). However, seven minutes later, Mansfield was able to equalize after exploiting the error of goalkeeper I Gede Aditya.


"I have to say that we conceded the goals in a bad way. Ridwan (Anshori) missed in the corner area, unaware of the opponent's threat and made a mistake in a dangerous position. Meanwhile (Muhammad) Faqih turned his back to the ball so it is impossible to anticipate the opponent's kick. If he didn't turn his body towards goal, he would be able to block the shot. In addition, the second goal was caused by the miscommunication at the backline, "explained Coach Dennis.


"However, there were some moments in the match where we played really well. Ridho's finishing was fantastic. It was a goal we deserved. For the best player, I think it’s given to Shabani (Kingazi). He was really solid and he gave a positive impact on team play. I am also satisfied with Hokky (Caraka). He never gave up to chase the ball and always spread threats throughout the game, "added Dennis.


"You need to understand that before the match we could only practice 11 against 11 in less than a week. So, I believe they will be able to improve their game and will play even better in the next few weeks," said Coach Dennis, closing the interview. Furthermore, #GarudaSelect is scheduled to face Cheltenham Town U18 on Friday (9/4) at 17:15 WIB
