JAC Sport, Jakarta - Indonesia national team certainly cancel to hold friendly match against Malaysia. In fact, PSSI chairman, Djohar Arifin Husin was to ensure Malaysia will be the opponent of the first national team trials on August 14, 2011.
"They (Malaysia) to preach this morning to cancel the friendly match next August 14 with no apparent reason," said national team coordinator who is also a member of the Executive Committee of PSSI, Bob Hippy in the PSSI office, Senayan, Jakarta, Thursday, August 4, 2011.
Meanwhile, plans to hold trials against Australia has not got a certainty. Because until now, there has been no confirmation from Australian about the relevant submissions from PSSI. "Australia has not replied until now," he said.
Until now, only two countries have expressed willingness to hold a friendly match against Indonesia, namely North Korea and Oman. But unfortunately, the second test match is still difficult to realize because there are several obstacles that block.
"For North Korea, those who offer a test match. Laga trial is expected on August 15 to 18. But we are still negotiating, because the fee they ask for our values are still overpriced," he said.
"As for Oman, we were asked to play there (Oman). But, it is not possible with a short time today. We wants to play here (Indonesia)," said Bob.
Bob also hoped Indonesia national team immediately got to get two against the certainty of trial. This is because Indonesia will make a fierce first game against Iran in Round III Pre World Cup in 2014, 2 September.
"At least, the national team should hold a trial match, two times," said Bob.
