Indonesia set to give Dutchman Indonesian citizenship

After years of accusing Singapore of giving citizenship to footballers, PSSI is now set to give Netherlands-born Sergio van Dijk an Indonesian citizenship in the coming days.

This is no doubt aim at strengthening their squad for the upcoming AFF Cup after their Asian Cup qualifiers humiliation with the Indonesians set to miss the Finals for the first time since 1992.

In addition, Indonesia main striker Bambung is ageing and the Indonesia National team have been looking for his successor for a while now without any success.

With this move, it will give the Indonesian team a good striker, if not a good strike force, as the Indonesian Super Liga is still not producing the next generation of good forwards thus their attack will now fall on the new Indonesian forward shoulder after Bambung is gone.

Serginho van Dijk play for Adelaide United in the A-league.
