“It’s a World Cup I’ve been preparing for three and a half years, so I feel complicated and difficult, but how hard our players are,” he said. .

Indonesia hosted the U-20 World Cup, but when Israel advanced to the finals, anti-Israel public opinion was formed that the Israeli team, which persecutes its Muslim brother country Pakistan, should be denied entry.

Some strong Muslims even threatened to kidnap the Israeli athletes if they entered the country.

As a result, FIFA eventually revoked Indonesia’s lien rights.
