The Football Associations of Indonesia has set two friendly matches for its national football team in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) ahead of their remaining rounds of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers in June.
“The first test match will be against Afghanistan on 25 May 2021 while the second friendly against Oman will be played four days later,” football authorities said.
“UAE will be the centralized location for the remaining matches of Group G of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers. Indonesia will play Thailand on 3 June 2021, Vietnam on 7 June 2021 and then against the hosts UAE on 11 June 2021,” officials added.
“This is certainly positive news for the national team and will be useful for our matches in the UAE later,” said Mochamad Iriawan, President of the Football Associations of Indonesia (PSSI).
“Coach Tae-yong wanted at least two test matches as a warm-up before playing in the qualifiers.
And these two countries have made the confirmation,” Indra Sjafri, Indonesian team Technical Director said.
According to the statement with the Asian Football Confederation, the Indonesia team will start their centralized training on 1 May 2021 in Jakarta. —GNLM
