Meanwhile in Indonesia's preparation, all players are in good physical condition after being in a training camp for several weeks and the only injured party is goalkeeper I Made Wirawan, while Markus Horison has been dropped. Coach Wim Rijsbergen is also waiting on the status of two naturalised players, Greg Nwokolo and Victor Igbonefo, because he hopes that they can be included immediately to strengthen the team.
