The Indonesian Football Federation (PSSI) has confirmed that the country’s national team will face Cameroon in a March 25 friendly.
The Merah Putih squad will hold the match at Gelora Delta Stadium, Sidoarjo, with the game serving as preparation for both teams ahead of World Cup 2018 qualifiers which are set to begin later this year.
“We will have a short-term program for the national team,”said PSSI General Secretary Joko Driyono. “We will call our players to join the training camp in about three days before the match.”
The friendly will also mark Benny Dollo’s third period in charge of the Indonesian side following Alfred Riedl’s dismissal in last December as a result of his failure in the AFF Suzuki Cup.
The two sides last met in a 2012 friendly match at Gelora Bung Karno Stadium Jakarta, in which Cameroon were held in a goalless draw against the host.
In addition to the Cameroon friendly, Indonesia also confirmed that they will have another warm-up match against Myanmar five days later.
