AS Roma Players Not Allowed Into Indonesia

First it was Pahang, now it is the turn of AS Roma.

A number of Pahang players were refused entry to Indonesia a couple of months back because someone somewhere had not realised they were not allowed to enter the country without a visa. Peeved, Pahang, who were in Indonesia to compete in an AFC Cup tie against Persipura, turned around and straight back home.

Now it is the turn of Italian side AS Roma. They are in Jakarta for some kind of flying visit and the chance to pose with some wildly excited local fans who will be guaranteed to smile and scream on cue. There is also some kind of game at Bung Karno but not sure what form this #CircusGame will be.

Anyways, five Roma players never left the airport. Former Arsenal player Gervinho, Seydou Doumbia, Victor Ibarbo, Adem Ljajic and Pablo Sarabia have passports from countries that are not on the list of those that get visa on arrival. And it seems, especially in the wake of the Pahang incident, no one checked.
