Why are the matches of Java and Celebes (Sulawesi) not in the Indonesia section ? They both played Australia....

According to http://www.ozfootball.net/ark/Socceroo/Socceroo.html, the matches were played by Australia 'B'. They also played against Singapore and Chinese in Malaysia. However, I think they count them as 'B' matches just because Australia played against non-national teams - so I'll try to add the relvant matches.

This is a historic picture: the Indonesian National team that took part in the 1996 Asian Nations Cup. This was their first appearance in the continental competition.

Indonesia suspended by FIFA. No competitive matches for them until 2020 earliest?

Indonesia ban was lifted in May. AFC Cup qualifiers are already ongoing. Don't think they will be given an entry this late.

Also Kyrgyzstan U-23 are playing.

Indonesia will use Asian Games squad (U-23 plus 3 senior players).

Incidentally, FIFA will count all matches as A-matches.  The forms they received were for Tier 1 matches.  Kyrgyzstan state quite clearly on their website that they will not use their A team, and Indonesia have also made it clear they will use their Asian Games team.  

But it's what it says on the forms that counts ;-) 

I wonder if Indonesia will backtrack if their U-23 team fails to beat Brunei and Mongolia?

the team that plays Guyana is the A-team?

Please send me a blank form, and I will fill it out saying that Scotland have qualified for the World Cup, and will play Brunei in the final.

They sent Tier 1 forms to FIFA for the match - any team that does this, the match is counted as an A-match...

The thing is - I am not sure Kyrgyzstan realise these matches are being counted as A-matches, otherwise I am not sure they would have sent their U-23 team...

I think it would be safer if you just said that Scotland had won the World Cup.  Brunei in a neutral venue is a potential banana skin.

Good point, I'll bribe the ref to give us a couple of penalties.

The mere fact that the match listing has the word "Scotland" without the word "Group" anywhere would raise suspicion way before any dodgy penalties...

No, the FIFA employees are mostly Swiss, so they will just mindlessly follow what the form says and not impose any ideas or morals of their own.

According to mongolianfootball, the whole tournament was for olympic teams (rather than U-23).

Also, it seems the tournament regulations mean it was entirely for U-23 + senior players (according to the same website).  However, Brunei started with 6 players over 23 against Indonesia, so I'm not sure that is true.  Mongolia seem to have left a few regular players at home (as mentioned on the same site - ostensibly because of the U-23 regulations).

It seems to have been a selection of players selected by fans, if I have read correctly.

"The Indonesian Selection Team has a selection of players selected by fans from various clubs in Indonesia. They are certainly quality players, "said assistant coach Iceland, Helge Kolvidsson."

It appears to be a selection of fringe players (national team players who haven't played for a few years, and U-23 players).

Rivky Mokodompit - U23 national team
Zulkifli Syukur - last cap in 2014
Maman Abdurrahman - last cap in 2010 
Achmad Jufriyanto - national team player (16 caps)
Tony Sucipto - national team player (17 caps)
Manahati Lestusen - national team player (13 caps)
Ahmad Bustomi - last cap in 2015
Paulo Sitanggang - U23 national team
Bayu Gatra - national team player (4 caps)
Bambang Pamungkas - last cap in 2013
Rizky Pora - national team player (16 caps)

Contradiction in terms.  Getting thrashed 6-0 by Iceland's reserves isn't of much use to anybody, except possibly the bookies.

I think they simply underestimated the power of Icelandic football, even with a bunch of reserves, despite the fact that even a rudimentary piece of research on them would have shown their recent improvement that has catapulted them into the upper echelons of international football - a place Indonesia can only dream of.  Clearly they haven't watched the rousing Viking clap, which was of course invented in Motherwell, that well-known bastion of Norse activity.

Here's Motherwell fans doing against Ross County before it was made fashionable by Iceland.


It'll be interesting to see whether Indonesia's national team fares any better.  Iceland seem to count this as their national team (internally), albeit unofficial (not official for FIFA).  Denmark seems to be the only Nordic team to treat their January Asian matches as "not A" (U-21/League XI seems to be what they are calling them).
