KL2017 Football: Indonesia Don't Want To Go Home Empty-handed


PETALING JAYA, Aug 28 (Bernama) -- After coming real close to reaching the final of the Kuala Lumpur SEA Games football competition, Indonesia are bent on at least securing the bronze medal.

The team's assistant coach Bima Sakti said the players were all set to face the 2015 edition finalists Myanmar at the Selayang Stadium tomorrow.

"We have made full use of the two days rest to do fine tuning. No player is in the croc (injured) list and we are raring to go,"he told the pre-match press conference here today.

Indonesia lost 0-1 to Malaysia in the semifinals on Saturday. The final between the hosts and defending champions Thailand will be played at the Shah Alam Stadium at 8.45pm on Tuesday.

At the last edition in Singapore two years ago, Indonesia lost 0-5 to Vietnam in the bronze medal play-off.
