The Indonesian Football Federation is keen on organizing a mini preparatory tournament before the upcoming SEA Games, but it currently awaiting confirmation from Malaysia
Proposals for the mini-tournament have been confirmed, with Maldives, Laos and Papua New Guinea already on board. However, they are currently awaiting response from Malaysia; whose green light will require PSSI to find another team to make it a six-side tournament.
"As of now, I'm nervously waiting for response from Malaysia. We invited four teams, thinking that three would join us and make it a four-side tournament," PSSI Secretary General Joko Driyono said.
"But Malaysia have now shown interest and we will probably include our senior team or maybe even the Indonesian U-20 team to make it a six-side tournament. However, it all depends on Malaysia."
The Malaysian U-23 team just concluded their run in the BIDC Cup in Myanmar, in which they were eliminated at the semi finals stage by the host nation.
