Young Lads from Munich Gave Indonesia a Lesson

Indonesia lost 1-5 to FC Bayern Munich last night at Gelora Bung Karno Stadion. I was there among about 60,000 people viewed the match. Like always, no matter win or lose we, supporters, gave attention, support and applause for all players.

I was wrong at my previous post where I wrote that there was Daniel van Buyten to play. Apparently he was injured and couldn't make it to Jakarta. But although only played with their 3 first-choices and 4 regular-substitutes, most other players were U-20, Bayern was too strong for Indonesia.

Hattrick from Jan Schlaudraff, 1 from Breno Vicius and 1 from Toni Kroos, actually there was one more canceled goal from Ze Roberto which was I'm sure he wasn't offside, enough to give a lesson to Indonesia. A lesson to play effectively and not making mistakes. Though had more possession, mostly on second half, ineffective play and also unnecessary mistakes surely did a big help for Bayern to win the game. Indonesia could only score one goal from Bambang Pamungkas.

At after-match press conference, Ottmar Hitzfeld stated his praise for Elie Aiboy who was very agile and threated Bayern's goal several times. He also revealed that actually they were lost at speed an agility but Indonesia made many mistakes so they could win the game comfortably. Benny Dollo, Indonesian coach, agreed and confessed that his team were trapped by Bayern's style.

One more thing should be an attention, field condition at Gelora Bung Karno. After used for another even one night before, it was in bad condition and not-nice looking. In the future, PSSI shall forbide any attempt to use the stadium other than football match events.

I came home with a satisfaction, same as other supporters felt, that Bayern proved that they've taken this match seriously even with second line players. For Indonesia, we, spartan football lovers will always say just like any Liverpool fans says, "You will never walk alone".
