Indonesia U-23 Went to Suriah
The Indonesia Football Association has decided to send the Indonesia U-23 team for World Cup Qualifying Round second match against Suriah in Damaskus (18/11). Chairman of the Association, in jail, and Board Members of the Association were mad on the poor result of the first match. Indonesia was defeated 1-4 by Suriah in Jakarta.
The Association decided to send U-23 team to Damaskus in order to improve team’s level , because Indonesia U-23 team will take part in regional SEA Games next December 2007 in Thailand. Ivan Kolev was delighted by the decision since he is confident that the U-23 players are still highly motivated after a month training in Argentina. Hopefully, the team will not repeat same mistakes as performed by the senior team in Jakarta.
