Irfan's In. Now He's Out!
Just a day or so go new local hero Irfan Bachdim was called by for national team trials ahead of Olympic Qualifiers and SEA Games in 2011.
Now the Persema striker who hit the headlines during the AFF Cup last month is being told to forget about his invite because his club side don't play in a league that is recognised by FIFA.
Persema of course are one of three teams that withdrew from the Indonesia Super League to join the unofficial Liga Primer Indonesia.
This story may well change again tomorrow. Or later tonight...
