Indonesia coach Wim Rijsbergen plans to make some changes for the game against Qatar following last week's goalless draw witih Saudi Arabia. Indonesia will use a 4-2-3-1 with defender Hamka Hamzah to be play as a holding midfielder to accompany Ahmad Bustomi while Wahyu Wijiastanto will move into right-back.

Boaz Salossa, Firman Utina and Ferdinand Sinaga will push forward in attack to support the lone striker Cristian Gonzalez. There may be surprise in the goalkeeper sector where I Made Wirawan could be selected as a starter, after performing brilliantly against Saudi Arabia.

Meanwhile in Qatar's preparation, Sebastiao Lazaroni isn't expected to make too many changes although surprisingly the Brazilian opted to leave out two naturalised midfielders, Fabio Cesar and Lawrence Quaye. Qatar are also without mainstays Yusef Ahmed and defensive midfielder Talal Al Bloushi due to injuries.
