It's all handshakes and autographs not as Chelsea players embark on something of a lap of honour. Thanks ever so much for joining me for today's action. I've been @hushkerai, you've been excellent. I'll see you soon!
Now for the trophy ceremony as Chelsea prepare to lift the BMI cup. Let the John Terry jokes commence...
An emphatic win for the Blues to put it mildly. Plenty of positives for Jose Mourinho to ponder after this match. Eden Hazard was outstanding, albeit against low level opposition. The likes of Chalobah and Van Ginkel showed real promise in the first half. While Bertrand Traore put in a eye-catching performance, bagging a great goal in the process.
FULL-TIME: Indonesia All-Stars 1-8 Chelsea
Not time to be added on here, both teams just want to get off the pitch now.
Into the final minute of normal time and Traore shows another good turn of pace in midfield. He has been highly impressive in this game. He would be a great loan acquisition for any club looking for a midfield talent.
After a whole host of substitutions the hosts have regained some impetus in this match. Chelsea players seem to be in energy-conservation mode with short passing and not a lot of sprinting on display.
Substitution Agung Supriyanto Greg Nwokolo
A lot of love for Eden Hazard on Twitter. Many of you believe he can reach the heights of the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo at Chelsea under Jose Mourinho this season. Goal's Liam Twomey has tipped him for the Player of the Year. We will have to wait and see...
Substitution Purwaka Yudhi Victor Igbonefo
Essien has not quite found his shooting range just yet as he blazes off target from distance. He's scored a few decent long range efforts in a Chelsea shirt down the years...
Substitution Hendra Bayauw Ahmad Bustomi
Chelsea are simply knocking the ball about at walking pace now. The Indonesian's have the uneviable task of chasing the Blues' shadows. They look like they are wilting now.
A bit of a petulant challenge on Ashley Cole by an Indonesian defender earns himself a yellow card; the first of the match. Traore takes the results free kick but wildly overhits it for a throw in.
Yellow Card Bayu Gatra Sanggiawan
Just under a quarter of an hour to go, I want to know how many more goals will fly in during the rest of the match. Send your predictions and goalscorers into @HushKerai. Go, go, go!
A decent chance for the hosts to grab a second a cross is floated in towards Nwokolo, who made the first goal, but the pass is slightly too heavy and the Indonesian forward can only watch it fly past his head.
FINE SAVE! You could say a Mega save... Lukaku directed a cross goalbound with a clever flick of the head but the Indonesia goalkeeper reacted well to turn it over the crossbar.
Goal Greg Nwokolo
GOAL! INDONESIA BAG ONE! KALAS OWN GOAL! Greg wondered along the byline skipping past a couple of challenges before his cut back across the goal was turned into his own net by Chelsea defender Kalas. Something to cheer for the Indonesia fans at last!
Goal Romelu Lukaku
GOAL! It's eight for Chelsea! Romelu Lukaku bags another with a fine finish. This is turning into a bit of a nightmare for the Indonesia All-Stars.
Traore, who has been really impressive since joining the action, tries his luck with a shot from distance but does not connect forcefully and Indonesia survive on this occasion.
A triple substitution from the Special One as youngsters McEachran, Piazon and Feruz come on for the impressive trio of Ramires, Van Ginkel and Hazard. Well deserved standing ovation for the departees, too.
Substitution Tomas Kalas Ramires
Substitution Egi Melgiansyah Syamsir Alam
Lukaku is looking to fill his boots with goals here. Everytime he gets the ball he heads straight for goal but on this latest occasion he loses control after beating his man with a bit of skill. A strange feel to this match now.
Goal Ramires
GOAL! Ramires makes it seven! A blistering counterattack is rounded off by a fine long range finish from the Brazilian. From one end of the pitch to the other in a matter of seconds. Indonesia All-Stars don't quite know what has hit them!
It is more like a home game for Chelsea as the crowd, representing a sea of blue, shows their appreciation for a wonderful performance so far from Mourinho's men. The All-Stars aren't getting much support, they really, really need it right now.
Goal Romelu Lukaku
GOAL! Lukaku makes it six! Eden Hazard shows off some more magical foot work before chipping a ball into the six yard box and Lukaku simply nods it in across at the far post. Deary me, this could get nasty.
Goal Bertrand Traore
GOAL! Take a bow Bertrand Traore. What a goal! After some fine one-touch build up play the youngster collects the ball at the edge of the area, takes one touch to tee himself up before stroking the ball with his left foot into the top corner of the net. Sublime.
The hosts haven't begun this half with the same intensity they did in the opening period. It's understandable given the scoreline but it'll only play into the hands of Mourinho's side.
Romelu Lukaku, a half-time substitute shows a great turn of pace to motor down the right wing and earn his side a corner kick. Traore sends it in but Indonesia manage to clear their lines.
Substitution Bayu Gatra Sanggiawan Andik Vermansyah
Underway in the second half! We're expecting Frank Lampard and Andre Schurrle to be introduced at some point in this half.
Substitution Hasim Kipuw M. Roby
Substitution Ashley Cole Ryan Bertrand
Substitution Romelu Lukaku Demba Ba
Substitution Michael Essien John Terry
Resounding first half performance from the Blues. Eden Hazard has had a stormer. What are your thoughts on the action so far and who would you like to see come on after the break? Send in your thoughts to @HushKerai.
@OjotuE: These Youngsters, Chalobah, Van Ginkel, Wallace etc are all kids to watch out for in the future,am so excited as a fan.
@vllar: The Happy one must hav a BIG grin on him at the moment!!!
HALF-TIME: Indonesia All-Stars 0-4 Chelsea
45′ +1
Goal John Terry
GOAL! John Terry gets on the scoresheet! A free kick from deep is flicked on past the Indonesian goalkeeper by Gary Cahill and Terry marches forward to nod it into an empty net. Resounding.
Oof! A bit of a naughty tackle on Eden Hazard, maybe a bit of retribution for his showboating. The Belgian dusts himself off and glares at the referee. No harm done it seems. We'll have zero minutes added on.
A bit of unorthodox goalkeeping from Mega as he rushes out to the edge of the area to take the ball with his feet. Indonesia are enjoying another short spell of possession before Wallace, again, gives away another free kick.
Chelsea mount another attack down the right an Wallace delivers a teasing cross-cum-shot, which the keeper gets a touch on to take it behind for a corner. It's all coming from the Blues at the moment.
Well I have only gone and jinxed him. Hazard is played through on goal and wonders back and forth waiting for some support, perhaps showboating a little, before the Indonesia goalkeeper snaps at his heels.
@Ojutue says Hazard is going to be a better player under Jose Mourinho. On current evidence he may have a point. The Belgian is running the show here.
Goal Demba Ba
GOAL! Demba Ba gets in on the act! Ramires' initial effort is parried away by Mega but the Chelsea striker is on hand to improvise a finish from the rebound to add another for the Blues.
Goal Ramires
GOAL! Ramires thumps the ball into the roof of the net after a fine flick on from Ryan Bertrand. A great finish from the Brazilian as the Blues begin to make their dominance count.
OFF THE POST AGAIN! This time Wallace has a chance to bag his first ever Chelsea goal after a fine ball from Hazard sets him free but his effort comes rocketing back off the woodwork too!
OFF THE POST! Chalobah has a go from about 25 yards out and strikes the foot of the post, really unlucky from the youngster!
Not sure if the pitch is up to standard as first Victor Moses and then Demba Ba lose their footing in quite comical fashion in the space of a few minutes.
@Niyinficient made a prediction that Chelsea will score and seconds later a penalty is converted. Indonesia are back in possession now but really lack any bite in the final third.
Penalty Goal Eden Hazard
GOAL! Indonesia All-Stars 0-1 Chelsea (HAZARD): Imputent. The Belgian looks one way, before slotting the ball in the other corner. He might have been watching a certain Clement Gernier last night. Fine spot-kick.
PENALTY CHELSEA! After a corner is thrown into the mixer there is a bit of a scramble before John Terry is clumsily hauled down inside the area. Hazard to take the spot-kick...
@mat4luv says Hazard is having a fine and I agree. He also says he wants some goals, and again, I agree! It looks like Chelsea will make the breakthrough. A matter of when and not if.
It is Hazard who strikes but it's struck to close to Mega who makes a simple save. The Belgian probably tried to wrong foot the Indonesia goalkeeper there but to no avail.
Victor Moses weaves in and out of defenders and works his way onto the byline but picks the wrong option at the end of the run. Pellu then brings down Demba Ba to hand Chelsea free kick about 25 yards from goal. Eden Hazard looks ready to pounce.
GREAT SAVE! Ramires peels away inside the penalty area to meet a fine cross from Eden Hazard but the Brazilian's header into the ground is deflected for a corner by Mega. The resulting corner comes to nothing. Best chance of the game so far.
CHANCE! Eden Hazard drives forward down the left flank before threading a pass into Demba Ba. The Chelsea striker to one touch to set himself before firing at goal with his second but a deflection only helped it bobble into the goalkeeper's arms.
A bit of inexperience from Wallace as he needlessly hands the host a free kick midway inside his own half. This is good stuff from the Indonesians, who were thoroughly outplayed by both Arsenal and Liverpool in the past few weeks.
Indonesia winger, Greg, squares up to Gary Cahill but ends up beating himself with one stepover too many. The electricity of the crowd will be a major factor in helping the hosts take the game to the Blues.
First real effort of the game comes from Eden Hazard. The Belgian drifted into a central position from the left side, before firing a shot off from the edge of the area. Unfortunately for him it sailed high and wide.
The teams are emerging from the tunnel, the second half is only moments away...
Eden Hazard tracks all the way back to the edge of his own penalty area to win the ball back for the Blues as Indonesia threatened. Great work rate from the Belgian.
‏@OjotuE: I just Pray Chelsea finally captures Wayne Rooney,Its going to great to have him and Di Rossi in the Chelsea squad
Demba Ba's pull back from the byline almost finds the fast approaching Marco van Ginkel in the box after a fine threaded pass from Nathan Chalobah. Good stuff from Indonesia to cut out the danger, though.
@RealMaestroD: I'm sure Schurrle will add some magic too to this performance when he comes on.
The hosts are knocking the ball about in the middle park with a bit of confidence and swagger. A fine spell of possession indeed!
Wallace tries to work a crossing opportunity on the right flank but only manages to kick the ball on to his standing foot, handing the hosts back possession in the form of a goal kick. Decent start to the game.
We are underway in Jakarta!
Remember, send in any thoughts you have during the match to @HushKerai, and I'll help fuel the discussion on here. Chelsea about to take the kick-off...
This is quite the occasion. The stadium is absolutely rammed, there are flashlights going off all over the place and the Indonesia fans are making a right racket. Excellent stufff.
The teams are out to a raucous reception and we are moments away from the kick-off in Chelsea's final game of the Asian leg of their pre-season tour.
The Blues boss has revealed that Frank Lampard and Andre Schurrle have been left out of today's side as a precautionary measure to protect some small knocks the pair are carrying.
I've been informed that the Indonesia coach is a Naval captain and a part-time comedian. This only begs the questions, Jose Mourinho, what are your hidden talents!?
It's a bit rowdy in Jakarta in the KC Stadium. Apparently the Indonesian fans have been at the ground for over three hours. Blimey. We should be in for a cracking game with that atmosphere.
Kick-off is only 15 minutes or so away. While we wait, you can send in your match predictions and any other thoughts in via @HushKerai and I'll do my best to get back to all of you. My favourite tweets from you lot will get a mention on here. Fire away!
Here's your Chelsea starting line-up v Indonesia All-Stars: Blackman; Wallace, Cahill, Terry, Cole; Ramires, Chalobah, Van Ginkel; Moses, Ba, Hazard.
Good afternoon ladies and gents! Welcome to Goal's coverage of Indonesia v Chelsea LIVE. I'm Husmukh Kerai and I'll be guiding you through all the action from the Blues' pre-season friendly.
