STANDARDS best runner-up 2023 Asia U-17 Cup Qualifiers finished Indonesian National U-17 vs United Arab Emirates was released. The Chinese U-17 national team also occupies the top of the standings at the moment with a collection of 3 points.
Yes, the 2023 Asian Cup U-17 qualification event continues. There are 44 teams participating in the qualification for the Asian Cup U-17 2023 and are divided into 10 groups, namely the AJ.
Thereafter, only 16 teams will qualify for the 2023 U-17 Asian Cup. A total of 16 teams were taken by the 10 group winners and the six best runners-up. Therefore, there is a special ranking to determine who the top five teams will be able to participate in the U-17 Asian Cup next year.
Now, the top runner-up position in the 2023 Asian Cup U-17 qualifier is occupied by the Chinese U-17 national team. In the standings, while the best runners-up, those who are second in Group G are currently recorded with 3 points.
Just behind China’s U-17 national team are residents of Group F, Thailand. They are registered to have the same points, i.e. 3 points. However, Thailand lost by goal difference while China scored +9, while Thailand was +3.
Then, in third place, there is Qatar which at the moment accumulates 1 point. Then Japan is in fourth place and Saudi Arabia in fifth. They scored the same points.
The sixth position in the ranking of the best runners-up to qualify for the 2023 U-17 Asian Cup is also occupied by a team from Group B, namely the United Arab Emirates (UAE). They were moved from the top of the Group B standings after losing to the Indonesian Under-17 national team with a score of 2-3.
Meanwhile, the occupants from 7th to 10th position are not yet known. This is because groups E, H, I and J have not yet started holding the 2023 Asian Cup U-17 qualifier match.
The calculation of the best runner-up for the same qualification to the Asian Cup U-17 2023 is carried out by the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) giving priority to the principle of equality. If the principle of equality is not applied, the runners-up in the AD group will automatically benefit the most, considering that they have played more games than the runners-up in the other groups.
The reason is that Group AD is full of 5 teams. Meanwhile, the EJ Group in the 2023 Asian Cup U-17 qualification is inhabited by only 4 teams.
Therefore, to remain the same, the AFC has established a regulation which stipulates that the matches of Group AD, the results of the matches against the fourth and fifth ranked teams do not count. Meanwhile, for Group EJ matches (excluding Group H), the result of the match against the fourth ranked team does not count. Because, in group H, there were only 3 teams after the retirement of East Timor.
However, this only applies to the best second place in the standings for qualifying for the 2023 Asian Cup U-17. The overall results of each group are still well taken into account in determining the group winner.
The following is the ranking of the best runners-up for the end of the 2023 Asian Cup U-17 qualifiers of the national team of Indonesia U-17 against the United Arab Emirates:
