Indonesia vs Bayern Munich

FC Bayern Munich is in Jakarta. They came with 21 players, 17 from senior team and 4 from junior team. There are no Luca Toni, Franck Ribery, Miroslav Klose, Lukas Podolski and Bastian Schweinsteiger due to Euro Cup preparation but some top players are brought by; Mark van Bommel, Daniel van Buyten, Ze Roberto and Jose Ernesto Sosa. Also some players from Germany juniors like Christian Lell, Toni Kroos, Andreas Ottl, and Jan Schlaudraff. Unfortunately there's no Lucio. The team leaded directly by Bayern's manager Uli Hoeness and off course, head coach Ottmar Hitzfeld.

They are seriously preparing 3 friendly matches in Indonesia, China and India as promotional series to Asian nations. Good choices. The 3 nations are top 3 in Asian population with hundreds of million football lovers. Wiser than Manchester United which only choose Japan or Korea, high payers, regularly as tour destination. It's only business, ain't it mate?

Bayern's players looked enthusiastic while giving coaching clinic to young boys from junior soccer clubs in Jakarta at Soemantri Brodjonegoro Stadion. Although they just landed at noon, they didn't show that they were tired after long flight from Germany.

Indonesian Coach Benny Dollo has been preparing his team seriously. While training at Senayan, Charis Yulianto and Nova Yulianto were set to fill center back positions. Both have experience playing against another Germany club, Borussia Dortmund last December. All players seemed enthusiastic to face Bayern.

The match will held today, May 21 at Gelora Bung Karno Stadion at 18.00. I hope grass condition at stadion is good since thousands people stepped on it last night at ceremony of 100th National Awakening, and days before for rehearsals. Yes I really hope it's good because I saw it last night, some area looked barren.

I'm just hoping it will be a pleasuring match and Indonesian players can get lessons from it. Fight and learn, don't mind the result. We have been supporting you through worse and worse. And we will always support you.

See you at Gelora Bung Karno!
