Indonesia national team caretaker Aji Santoso has named his squad for the upcoming World Cup Qualifier against Bahrain in Group E on February 29.
Santoso faces several selection difficulties following the internal strife in the Football Association of Indonesia (PSSI) about the dualism of national league.Based on the Fifa’s announcement, Indonesian Super League (ISL) players would be ineligible to play for the national team, and had to be replaced by players from the current official league the Indonesian Premier League (IPL).
Irfan Bachdim has been recalled following his three-month suspension, along with the several youngsters such as Diego Michiels, Gunawan Dwi Cahyo and Rendi Irawan.
Indonesia are out of the running to reach the final stage of qualification after losing all previous five games in the group, but Santoso is hopeful of ending their campaign on a high against Bahrain.
“It will be hard to get results in Bahrain, but a draw is still feasible.” said Santoso.
“However, this is the best squad we have for now. They are still young and have a promising future.”
Iran have already qualified from the section with 11 points, while Qatar have nine points. Bahrain sit third with six points, while Indonesia are at the bottom of the standings without any points.
