Indonesia call up new citizen

After all the talk by PSSI that they are going to call up 5 new citizens, it now seem they are 'less ambitous' as the infamous Indonesia bureaucracy slowed down any movement down that road.

Out of their 5 new citizen they announced, it seem none of them can make it to the Suzuki Cup as the Indonesia bureaucracy has yet to issue them their passports.

Indeed, 2 of the new citizen- John van Beukering and Sergio van Dyk - had been expected to make their international debut against Uruguay last month but in the end, they could not take to the field as FIFA told PSSI the match will not be considered an A international as they were not citizen yet.

Still the Uruguayan must have impressed much as they are getting their own with Christan Gonzales, now a former Uruguayan, call up to the Indonesia set-up.

The Persib Bandung forward have been playing in Indonesia since 2003 and have scored 166 goals in the league to date.
