SQUAD

Indonesia has no set formation for the Cup, and could utilize both 4-2-3-1 and 4-4-2 tactics. Veterans Bambang Pamungkas and Ellie Aiboy will lead the team along with several starlets and mixed-heritage players such as Andik Vermansyah, Tonnie Cussel and Jhonny van Beukering. On the whole, this year's squad has plenty of new faces.

KEY PLAYERS
Bambang Pamungkas Elie Aiboy Andik Vermansyah
The most-capped player and top goalscorer of Merah Putih, his presence in this tournament could boost the whole team morale. Indonesia's team captain. Despite being the oldest player at 33, his experience is more than enough to lead the team. Considered the 'Indonesian Messi' by some due to a similar physique and playing style. He is undoubtedly considered to be one of Indonesia's greatest talents.


COACH
Nil Maizar
The Payakumbuh-born tactician was appointed as national team coach earlier this year. His coaching style relies on the collectivity of team; his quality has been proven during his time at the helm of Semen Padang, when the club reached fourth place in the 2010-11 Indonesia Super League with an unbeaten home record.
