Fantasy Friendlies

The Indonesian Football Association are at it again. They are giving the impression that countries are queuing up to play Indonesia in a friendly. The old mob did the same, throwing out names like Argentina, Ivory Coast and Netherlands with gay abandon.

Cameroon, Algeria, China, North Korea, Pakistan, India and Sri Lanka are reportedly keen to come here while Vietnam, Brunei, Malaysia, Timor Leste and Philippines (in other words half of ASEAN) are keen on home and away games.

Dates, we are breathlessly informed, are being discussed. 'Cos of course there is so much free time. I mean some countries out there schedule their friendlies on FIFA dates. That is designed to make things easier for all concerned.

Indonesia don't bother with such niceties.
