Responding to his opponent's candidate in the U-16 AFF Cup semifinals, the Indonesian Under-16 National Team coach, Fakhri Husaini, acknowledged his team's readiness to face the eternal enemy.
Fakhri also claimed to have monitored the match between Laos U-16 national team against Malaysia U-16 national team, on Tuesday 7 August 2018 afternoon WIB at Joko Samudro Stadium.
According to Fakhri, the results of these observations will be a consideration for him to formulate a strategy to face the Malaysia U-16 national team.
Regarding what kind of strategy, the coach born in Lhokseumawe, Aceh did not want to mention specifically.
The Indonesian national team has an advantage in the match against Malaysia in the semi-finals. The advantage of Indonesia that passed the group A phase with full memories in the stadium with a capacity of 35 thousand pononton. While Malaysia has never played in the field of the Gelora Delta stadium during the group phase, Indonesia has also benefited
Malysia has Muhammad Fahmi Daniel Mohd Zaaim Muhammad Fahmi Daniel Mohd Zaaim is a midfielder who deserves attention by the U-16 Indonesian national team coach, Fakhri Husaini in the semi-final match later. Because, from his position as a midfielder, he equaled Harith's score as Malaysia's top scorer in the Under-16 AFF Cup. He scored two goals in 4 appearances so far.
Malysia also has a Harith Naem Janieh The player born in 2002 is indeed a mainstay on the Malaysia U-16 front line. How could I not, Harith always appeared in 4 matches played by Malaysia along the 2018 AFF Cup AFF Cup Group B. Mokhtar Dahari's Football Ball Academic player has scored two goals in 4 appearances so far. Even the two goals were scored in 2 consecutive matches, namely the second and third matches of Group B.
On the other hand. Indonesia vs Malaysia matches almost always leave bad memories for the Indonesian national team. Exactly Indonesia rarely wins over Malaysia.
Of the five matches in the 2017 U-16 AFF Cup, the Under-16 national team only won once, one draw and three defeats. This time, they are required to have a positive report card to escape competition in Group A.
The match will run exciting, because it is not just fighting for the final ticket, this match also risks the prestige of both teams. Considering the tension of the match is always hot both outside and inside the field.
For betting. I hold Indonesia
For score. Indonesia won 2-1
