One Step Forwards, Two Step Back

Indonesia plods along its own merry way to football union with the national team currently digesting both good and bad news. The good is that Persija striker Bambang Pamungkas has said he would like to be considered for the upcoming AFF Cup.

Bambang had been avoiding the national team, possibly as a protest at the pathetic way they are being ran (my words, not his), and had refused call ups from both PSSI and KPSI.

Now however he has thrown in his hat with the PSSI squad. His involvement will be seen as crucial considering his status as elder statesman in the game and other players could follow his example over the coming days as Indonesia attempts to make one winning team out of one losing and one untested teams.

Two players who won't be joining, at least yet, are Hamkah Hamza and Ahmad Buctomi. Their club, Mitra Kukar have refused them leave to join the training camp ahead of the AFF Cup later this month.
