Curacao was chosen as a test opponent by Indonesia because Shin Tae Yong needed a tough opponent to prepare for the 2022 AFF Cup and 2023 Asian Cup.
This match can be a good opportunity for Shin Tae Yong to measure and test the strength of the Indonesian national team.

Curacao is also now ranked 84th in FIFA. Meanwhile, the Indonesian national team is currently ranked 155th in the world or 71 adrift of Curacao.
This match against Curaçao must be used by Indonesia to improve its FIFA ranking. Here are three weaknesses of Curaçao that can be exploited by Indonesia.
1. Weak Defense
Curaçao’s defense showed a less solid appearance. Especially in the last three matches of 2022, namely against Canada on June 10, 2022 and twice against Honduras on June 4 and 7, 2022.
In three CONCACAF Nations League 2022 matches at the start of June 2022, the Curacao national team defense looked very easy for opponents to penetrate.
As a result, against Canada, Curaçao lost 0-4. Canada’s four goals were created through different processes. Canada’s first goal against Curaçao came with a penalty, a header and two par open game.
Then against Honduras, Curaçao conceded a free kick and an open game.
