Indonesia Friendly Shock
This report suggests Indonesia will play a friendly against Saudi Arabia in Malaysia on 7th October. What's that all about then? Why can't the Saudis come to Jakarta eh? Anything to do with the fact that Saudi women have been saying less than complimentary things about Indonesian women, comparing them less favourably to Moroccan women (as maids and domestics you understand).
Or could it be anything to do with the last time Indonesia hosted the Saudis, at the Bung Karno Stadium, during the AFC Asian Cuo when any gentleman dressed like an extra from Lawrence of Arabia had plastic bottles thrown at him by the local support?
Or could it be because there will a rock concert held at the Bung Karno just days before a crucial World Cup Qualifier against Qatar and no one checked whether or not the FA needed the stadium for a football match! So the game v Qatar will be played on a field resembling the best, or worst, of Glastonbury...'cos Indonesia lacks decent arenas for football and music.
AFC and AFF should organise football etiquette campaigns for fans at Senayan and Bukit Jalil. Even President Yudhoyono was disgusted...Post a Comment
