Indonesia national football team

The Indonesia national football team (Indonesian: Tim Nasional Sepak Bola Indonesia) represents Indonesia in international football and is controlled by the Football Association of Indonesia (PSSI). This was the first Asian team to participate in the FIFA World Cup, which was the 1938 edition of the tournament, after its opponent, Japan, withdrew from the qualification heats. The 6–0 loss to eventual finalists Hungary in the first round of the tournament in Reims remains the nation's only appearance in the World Cup. Thus, Indonesia holds the World Cup record as the team with the fewest matches played (1) and one of the teams with the fewest goals scored (0).

The team's only Olympic appearance was in 1956 when they held the eventual gold medalists Soviet Union goalless even though they lost 0–4 in the replay.[5] Indonesian national team qualified for the AFC Asian Cup on four occasions but have never progressed beyond the group stage. Indonesia's best performance in Asia was at the 1958 Asian Games in Tokyo when it achieved the bronze medal.[5] The team has reached the AFF Championship final ties on five occasions but has never won the tournament. They share a local rivalry with the top ASEAN teams from which the one against Malaysia is considered the fiercest due to cultural and political reasons.

HistoryEdit

BeginningEdit

The matches involving sides from the Dutch East Indies (or Netherlands East Indies) were organised by the Nederlandsch Indische Voetbal Bond (NIVB), or its successor, the Nederlandsch Indische Voetbal Unie (NIVU). The matches that were run prior to the nation's independence in 1945 are not recognised by the PSSI.[5]

The first recorded football match that involved a team from the Dutch East Indies was a contest against a Singapore national team on 28 March 1921. The match was played in Batavia and the Dutch East Indies won with a final score of 1–0. This was followed by matches against an Australian XI in August 1928 (2–1 victory) and a team from Shanghai two years later (4–4 draw).[5]

In 1934, a team from Java represented the Dutch East Indies in the Far Eastern Games that was played in Manila, Philippines. Despite defeating the Japanese, 7–1, in its first match,[6] the next two matches ended in defeats (2–0 to the China national team and 3–2 to the host nation) resulting in a second-place tournament finish for the Java national team. Although not recognised by PSSI, these matches are treated by the World Football Elo ratings as the first matches involving the Indonesian national side.[7]

The Dutch East Indies were the first Asian team to participate in the FIFA World Cup, when the team qualified for the 1938 tournament after its opponent, Japan, withdrew from the qualification heats. The 6–0 loss to the Hungary football team, in the first round of the tournament in Reims, remains the nation's only appearance in the World Cup.

1950s–1984Edit

After the Second World War, followed by the Indonesian Revolution, a highlight of the football history of independent Indonesia occurred at the 1956 Olympics in Melbourne. The team forced the Soviet Union to a nil-all draw, but lost 0–4 in the replay match.[5] This remains the country's only appearance in the Olympics.

In 1958, the team tasted its first World Cup action as Indonesia in the qualifying rounds. The team defeated China in the first round, but subsequently refused to play its next opponents, the Israel national team, for political reasons.[5]

Indonesian won the bronze medal at the 1958 Asian Games where it beat the India national team, 4–1, in the third-place match. The team also drew, 2–2, with the East Germany in a friendly match.[5]

The Indonesian team lifted the Merdeka Tournament trophy on three occasions (1961, 1962 and 1969). Indonesia were also champions of the 1968 King's Cup.[5]

Indonesia returned to World Cup qualification competition in 1974; however, the team was eliminated in the first round, with only one win, from six matches, against the New Zealand national team. During the 1978 qualification heats, the Indonesian team only won a single match, out of four matches, against host team, Singapore. Four years later, in 1982, Indonesia recorded two victories in qualifying matches, against Chinese Taipei and Australia.[5]

1985–1995Edit

The 1986 FIFA World Cup qualification round saw the Indonesia advanced from the first round with four wins, one draw and one loss, eventually finishing at the top of its group. However, South Korea emerged victorious over the Indonesians in the second round.[5]

The team also reached the semi-final of the 1986 Asian Games after beating the United Arab Emirates in the quarter-finals; but the Indonesians then lost to hosts South Korea in the semi-finals. The Indonesian team also lost to Kuwait, 5–0, in the bronze medal match.[8]

A milestone during this era was the gold medal victory at the Southeast Asian Games in both 1987 and 1991. In 1987, the Indonesians beat Malaysia, 1–0; while in 1991, the team beat the Thailand, 4–3, in a penalty shoot-out.[5]

In the 1990 qualification, the Indonesian team lost in the first round, with only one win against Hong Kong, three draws and two defeats.[5] The team also only managed a single victory against the Vietnam in the 1994 qualification round.[5] By the same time, however, Indonesia began to assemble a squad that would become the country's first golden generation in Indonesian football, which would reach its zenith from the late 1990s to 2010s.

1995–2016Edit

Asian CupEdit

Indonesia's first appearance in the AFC Asian Cup was against the United Arab Emirates in the 1996 AFC Asian Cup. During the tournament, Indonesia only scored a single point from a 2–2 draw against Kuwait in the first round.[9]

The team's second appearance in the Asian Cup was in Lebanon in the 2000 AFC Asian Cup; again, the Indonesian team gained only one point from three games, and, again, from a match against Kuwait that finished without a score from either side. Indonesia eventually established a better record in the 2004 AFC Asian Cup, beating the Qatar national football team, 2–1, to record the team's first ever victory in the history of the tournament. Nevertheless, the win was not enough for the Indonesian team to qualify for the second round, having fallen 0–5 to host China and 1–3 to Bahrain.

In the 2007 tournament, Indonesia acted as one of the four Southeast Asian co-hosts, and get eliminated from the first round.[10]

ASEAN Football ChampionshipEdit

Indonesia reached the finals of ASEAN Football Championship on five occasions (2000, 2002, 2004, 2010 and 2016), albeit never managing to lift the trophy victoriously. The team's claim of regional titles came in the Southeast Asian Games of 1987 and 1991.[11][12]

After the Withe era, the inability to fulfil the ASEAN target has been cited as the reason for Indonesia's "revolving door" in terms of team managers. Over the course of two years, the Indonesia's manager changed from Kolev to local coach, Benny Dollo, who was in turn sacked in 2010. The head coach position was then held by Alfred Riedl who failed to lift any cups and in July 2011 was then replaced by Wim Rijsbergen.[13]

The regional 1998 ASEAN Football Championship saw the group stage match between Thailand and Indonesia with both teams had already qualified for semi-finals but were also aware that the winner would have to face hosts Vietnam. Indonesian defender Mursyid Effendi deliberately kicked the ball into the Indonesian's own goal as a Thai attacker ran towards the ball.[14] FIFA fined both teams $40,000 for "violating the spirit of the game", while Effendi was banned from international football for a lifetime. Indonesia then lost to Singapore in the semi-finals.[15]

2012 and 2015–16 suspensionsEdit

In March 2012, PSSI received a warning for the divided state of Indonesian football, whereby two separate leagues existed: the rebel Super League (ISL), which isn't recognised by the PSSI or FIFA, and the Premier League (IPL). The National Sports Committee (KONI) encouraged the PSSI to work collaboratively with Indonesian Football Savior Committee (KPSI) officials to rectify the situation, but KONI chairman, Tono Suratman, stated, in March 2012, that KONI will take over the beleaguered PSSI if matters are not improved.[16] FIFA did not state whether Indonesia would face suspension, but on 20 March 2012, FIFA made an announcement. In the lead-up to 20 March 2012, the PSSI struggled to resolve the situation and looked to its annual congress for a final solution.[17] The PSSI was given until 15 June 2012 to settle the issues at stake, notably the control of the breakaway league; failing this, the case was to be referred to the FIFA Emergency Committee for suspension.[18]

FIFA eventually set a new 1 December 2012 deadline and in the two weeks preceding the deadline, three out of four PSSI representatives withdrew from the joint committee, citing frustrations in dealing with KPSI representatives. However, FIFA stated that it would only issue a punishment to Indonesian football after the Indonesian national squad finished its involvement in the 2012 AFF Championship.[19]

In 2013, the president of PSSI, Djohar Arifin Husin signed a Memorandum of understanding (MoU) with La Nyalla Matalitti (KPSI-PSSI) that was initiated by FIFA and the AFC through the Asian Football Confederation's Task Force. Since then, the control of Indonesia Super League was taken by Joint committee to remain manageable by PT Liga Indonesia until the establishment of a new professional competition by the committee.[20] This means the Indonesian players from ISL were able to play and join the national team. The PSSI called players from both football leagues, ISL and IPL to fortify the national team for Asian Cup qualifier of 2015. On 7 January 2013, PSSI announced a lists of 51 players from both side football leagues regardless of whether players from the breakaway Indonesia Super League (ISL) would make an appearance, allegedly ISL clubs were reluctant to release players because they doubted Djohar's leadership.[21] During the friendly match, Indonesia lost 0–5 to Jordan and lost 0–1 to Iraq in 2015 AFC Asian Cup qualification.

The PSSI appointed Luis Manuel Blanco from Argentina as the head coach on 9 February 2013.

On 18 March 2013, the PSSI held a congress at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Both parties, PSSI and KPSI (breakaway group) solved their differences in four contentious points; such as; Reunification of two leagues; Revision of the PSSI Statutes; Reinstatement of the four expelled PSSI Executive Committee members La Nyalla Mattalitti, Roberto Rouw, Erwin Dwi Budiawan and Toni Apriliani; and agreement of all parties to the Memorandum of Understanding from 7 June 2012 on the list of delegates to the PSSI Congress based on the list of the Solo Congress of July 2011.

The new PSSI called 58 players from both sides leagues (ISL and IPL) for the national squad. Rahmad Darmawan returned as the caretaker coach for the senior team and his friend, Jacksen F. Tiago was also in-charge as the assistant coach. Both Rahmat and Jaksen trimmed the 58 players initially called for national training to 28. The list would then be trimmed again to just 23 players for the Saudi Arabia match. Victor Igbonefo, Greg Nwokolo, and Sergio van Dijk the three naturalised players were on the final list.[22]

On 23 March 2013, Indonesia was defeated 1–2 by Saudi Arabia at home. Boaz Solossa was the man who gave Indonesia the first goal at their long-running campaign at AFC Asian Cup qualification; the home team started with the goal in the sixth minute but the Saudi Side fought back with the equaliser from Yahya Al-Shehri in the 14th minute before Yousef Al-Salem the scored what turned out to be the winner on 56th minute.[23]

The Indonesian Football Association was suspended by FIFA because of government interference in the Southeast Asian country's national league on 30 May 2015. The ban took effect immediately and meant that Indonesia would not be eligible to compete in the next round of qualifiers for the 2018 World Cup and 2019 Asian Cup, starting less than two weeks later. FIFA took action against Indonesia following a row between local government and the football association which has resulted in the cancellation of the domestic competition.[24]

The suspension was lifted at the 66th FIFA Congress.[25] By then, hurried perpetration was done for Indonesia in order to get in touch for the upcoming 2016 AFF Championship, where Indonesia eventually reached the final, but once again fell to Thailand in process.[26]

2017–present: a hornet's nestEdit

A few weeks after finishing second in the ASEAN Football Championship, PSSI held a congress on 8 January in efforts to sign Luis Milla to handle their senior and U-22 team. It is understood as well that they are also making changes in their domestic football league system and attempting to minimize the number of naturalization players.

With a vision of improving the nation's fortune, Indonesia has started to increase its budget on training and developing its young football players. The U-16 and U-19 teams in 2018 AFC U-16 Championship and 2018 AFC U-19 Championship both managed to advance to the quarter-finals before losing to Australia and Japan, respectively.[27][28] At the same time, the U-23 team was only brought down by the UAE U-23 team on penalty shoot-out at 2018 Asian Games.[29]

The past problems started to reappear. Indonesia's main domestic league, Liga 1, has been criticized for its complex and unfancy schedule that squeeze out players' energy but PSSI had refused to address about the issue. Subsequently, the U-23 team failed to reach the 2020 AFC U-23 Championship falling behind Vietnam and Thailand. Meanwhile, Luis Milla departed without any explanations, causing angers among Indonesian supporters.[30] The senior Indonesian side crashed out from the group stage in 2018 AFF Championship led to the sacking of Bima Sakti.[31] In order to prepare for the 2022 World Cup campaign, Indonesia has signed Simon McMenemy with hope that his successful tenure with the Philippines could reinvigorate Indonesia's performance especially when Indonesia was grouped with three Southeast Asian rivals, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam alongside the UAE.[32] Indonesia lost all four matches including a 2–3 home defeat to Malaysia despite having taken a 2–1 lead prior followed by a home loss to Vietnam for the first time ever in any competitive tournaments. On 6 November 2019, PSSI decided to sack McMenemy over the national team's deteriorating performance.[33] The Indonesians traveled to Malaysia where they lost to its rival 0–2 away and was officially eliminated from 2022 FIFA World Cup.[34]

Following the failure to qualify for World Cup, the PSSI appointed former World Cup manager Shin Tae-yong as coach of Indonesian team with hope to reinvigorate the team for the upcoming 2023 AFC Asian Cup qualification using the success of Park Hang-seo in Vietnam as an evidence for their appointment.[35]

KitEdit

 
Indonesia's football jersey with numbers 17 in 1981

During the Dutch colonial era, the team competed as Dutch East Indies in international matches and played in an orange jersey, the national colour of the Netherlands. There are no official documents about the team's kit, only several black-and-white photos from the match against Hungary in the 1938 FIFA World Cup; but unofficial documents stated that the kit consisted of an orange jersey, white shorts and light blue socks.[36] Since Indonesia's independence, the kit consists red and white, the colours of the country's flag. A combination of green and white has also been used for the away kits, and was used for the team's participation in the 1956 Summer Olympics in Melbourne, Australia, until the mid-1980s.[37]

The 2010–2012 home kit became an issue when the Indonesian team played against an opponent wearing an all-white uniform, since the socks were white instead of usual red. The solution was solved with a red-green-green combination (for away games) with green shorts and socks taken from the away kit, or initially an all-red uniform (for home games). After a home defeat in the 2014 World Cup third round qualifier match against Bahrain on 6 September 2011, the red shorts used (with green application) were scrapped after its first outing and never used again. The red socks had white application on it, different from the red socks with green application usually worn during training. The combination of red-white-red used many times in the future as the alternate home kit, for example on the subsequent home matches of the qualifiers against Qatar and Iran later that year.

On 12 November 2012, a week prior to the start of the 2012 AFF Suzuki Cup, Indonesia released its new home and away kits, again designed by Nike. The home kit returned to the red-white-red combination, as was the case in 2008, and the away kit consisted of a white-green-white combination. "The green colour brings a historical touch as the national team in the 1950s wore green shirts," Nike Indonesia marketing manager, Nino Priyambodo, said. "We hope it can inspire the national team for better performances in the future."[38] The alternate shorts for this home kit were red shorts and green away shorts, while the away kit's alternate shorts were white shorts with red numbering from the default home shorts.

On 31 October 2014, Nike released Indonesia's home and away kits for the 2014 AFF Championship. The home shirt was red with white Nike logo and lines and green accent on the shoulders and tip of the sleeves, restricted by the white lines. The home kit consisted of red-white-red combination. The away shirt is white with green collar, sleeve tips, and Nike logo. The away kit consisted of white-green-white combination.[39] Due to the FIFA sanction imposed in 2015, the kits were used again in the 2016 AFF Championship and up until 2018 with two different fonts other than the 2014 Nike fonts used earlier.

On 31 May 2018, Nike released Indonesia's new home and away kits. The home shirt is red with golden Nike logo inspired from the country's national emblem, the Garuda Pancasila. The home kit consists of red-white-red combination. The away shirt is white with green Nike logo. The away kit consists of white-green-white combination.[40]

Home stadiumEdit

Indonesia usually play their home matches at Gelora Bung Karno Main Stadium located within the Gelora Bung Karno Sports Complex, Gelora, Tanah Abang, Central Jakarta, Indonesia. The stadium is named after Sukarno, Indonesia's first President. It is mostly used for football matches and has a seating capacity of over 77,193 spectators, though it has been able to hold more than that during special matches. The final of the 2007 AFC Asian Cup was held in this stadium. This stadium was once the 7th largest association football stadium in the world.

Media coverageEdit

Indonesia team qualifiers for the 2022 FIFA World Cup (second round only) and 2023 AFC Asian Cup are currently broadcast by free-to-air public television network TVRI, Emtek's free-to-air television network SCTV (from 2021)[41], and Polytron's premium multiplatform network Mola TV, through 2022.[42]

Commercial MNC Media also shows the national team but from 2020 until 2023, MNC only covering the national team matches at 2021 AFF Championship and 2023 AFC Asian Cup (if qualified to the finals tournament) due to MNC-Lagardère (AFC (until 2020) and AFF Championship) and Football Marketing Asia (AFC Asian Cup) broadcasting rights partnership contract.[43][44] Unlike the TVRI, SCTV, and Mola TV, the three televisions bought the rights from PSSI only.
