Hansamu Yama is one of the Indonesian national team players who has had little playing time in the 2022 AFF Cup. The Indonesian national team has competed in four matches and advanced to the semifinals.
Even so, there are three players who are known for having a lower percentage of playing time in positions other than goalkeeper. Hansamu Yama, Ramadhan Sananta, and Syahrian Abimanyu are the three players in this match.
On Monday (26/12/2022), the Garuda Squad defeated Brunei Darussalam 7-0. However the three did not appear on the field at any point during the game. The following is a list of three Indonesian national team players who have minimal playing time at the 2022 Asian Football Confederation Cup.
Ramadhan Santanta was the last player on the team who didn’t get enough playing time. The PSM Makassar striker is believed to have only appeared in one match and played the least of any player on this list.
Sananta had never competed before and only recorded a very small portion of playing time, 27 minutes to be exact. Sananta, different from Hansamu and Abhimanyu. Only participated in one game where he was used as a substitute. He is believed to be replacing Ilija Spasojevic in the match against Brunei Darussalam. Even so, the 20-year-old played quite well and was responsible for one of the team’s goals.
Syahrian Abimanyu is the second player in the 2022 AFF Cup whose playing minutes are very limited. Like Hansamu, the then 23 year old only appeared in one match but was indispensable for the full three quarters.
In Abhimanyu’s case, it will be difficult to get a place in the Indonesian national team. Musabab who played in the middle of the field replaced Marc Klok who previously occupied that role. Moreover, the fact that Shin Tae-game yong’s schemes were changed frequently meant that Abhimanyu was unable to secure a position in it.
Because of that, there was one time when I played. The Persija Jakarta midfielder was able to score one goal against Brunei Darussalam.
The first name on the list of players who need more playing time is Hansamu Yama. Shin Tae-yong did not put full trust in the defender from Persija Jakarta to guard the Indonesian national team’s back line. In the 2022 AFF Cup, Hansamu only participated in one match.
However, on that day, he was on the court the entire game. Hansamu’s performance, which is not optimal, is suspected to be the reason why he is rarely included in the Garuda squad.
