HistoryEdit

1961 AFC Youth ChampionshipEdit

Indonesia national U-19 team won the title together with Burma (now Myanmar) in 1961. At that time, it was confirmed that only 10 teams were divided into two groups.

Indonesia is in Group A with South Korea, Vietnam, Singapore and Japan.

But, in the top party, Toni Pogačnik team was playing a 0–0 draw with Burma. As a result, these two countries were crowned as joint champions.

1979 FIFA World Youth ChampionshipEdit

Indonesia U-19 team qualified for the 1979 FIFA World Youth Championship in Japan. It was Indonesia's first FIFA tournament appearance since its independence in 1945, having played under colonial Dutch East Indies name in the 1938 senior World Cup. Indonesia was drawn to Group B, with favorites Argentina, Poland, and Yugoslavia. Included in the Argentina squad was future senior World Cup-winning captain Diego Maradona. Its senior team had won the senior World Cup a year earlier.

The team, coached by Soetjipto Soentoro, played the 1978 AFC Youth Championship in Bangladesh. At the time, only the finalists qualified for the World Youth Championship. Indonesia managed to qualify for the quarter-finals as Group A runners-up with two wins and one defeat. In that stage, Indonesia lost to North Korea. The finalists were South Korea and Iraq. However, Iraq withdrew from the World Youth Championship. Similarly, when the quota was offered to North Korea and Kuwait as the semifinalists, they rejected the opportunity. The berth than passed to the eliminated quarter-finalists. As with Iraq and Kuwait, three out of four quarter-finalists: Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Bahrain also declined to participate. Indonesia as the remaining team took it.

Facing Argentina in the first match, Indonesia was defeated 5–0; Maradona scored twice. The next two matches also ended in heavy defeats, 6–0 to Poland and another 5–0 to Yugoslavia. Argentina and Poland qualified for the quarter-finals, and the former would gone on to win the competition.

As of 2018, this was Indonesia's last FIFA tournament appearance in any level and gender competitions. Indonesia has never scored any goal in all two FIFA competitions they participated.
