November 21, 2010

Palembang: Chief coach Indonesia, Alfred Riedl is determine that his team will win against Timor Leste.” Im pretty sure that this match will be easy one for Indonesia but there an obstacle when comes playing on the field. Sometime the players are not focus on the game that they  loss their concentration that my biggest fear. But other than that we pretty sure we are going this game” said Alfred.

The Brazilian coach Antonio Carlos Viera believe Indonesia is not the greatest team in the World of Football. But for Timor Leste is just another step to take higher level in ASEAN football countries. This is the first friendly match for Timor Leste since 2004.” I would say there an electricity on the air on today’s match. Some of my players have loss their family in Santa Cruz during 1999; they request Federacao de Futebol de Timor Leste to have their Uniform in Black. My players is very angry with Indonesian and they want to win really bad. They will give 120% during this match. I think we may have a chance to win  this game. There no doubt we are going to loss a lot goals because we have been practicing  since the beginning of November.  Indonesia can bring any players they like, especially Irfan Bachdim and Gonzales (El Loco) ; but we not afraid due to my player anger. There nothing to stop my player to win this match” said Antonio at  event interview.

“Timor Leste was the first official Football Federation to bring back Timorese oversea and to have naturalized players” said Amandio Sarmento. Indonesia FA (PSSI) stole our idea and unfortunately our players will be join the national team next year due they busy schedule and financial.  I think PSSI does not have it’s direction. Although we are new but we have direction to be successful in the future. I hope we could go to the World Cup in 2018. added Amandio.

This friendly match will kick off at 3:30 pm in Jakabaring Stadium, Palembang. Recent update, RCTI will not be broadcast this match, only Australian Darwin & Sydney TV Chanel,Start Sports, Fox Sports Australia and TTL (Timor Leste)
