The winger has not featured for Indonesia since his 2013 injury

star Andik Vermansah has not been put off by his two years of absence from the  national team.

The diminutive winger was called up to the Merah Putih squad in a 3-0 friendly defeat to Netherlands in 2013, then left out of the senior squad entirely following an injury in that year’s SEA Games.

The former Persebaya 1927 icon revealed his disappointment of missing out from the international fixtures, especially in light of his good form in the Super League with The Red Giants.

“It was disappointing not to play in the AFF Suzuki Cup, but now I don’t care whether or not I get the call-up,” Andik told FourFourTwo. “If they call me up today, I will play, but if they don’t, it is not an issue.”

However, the 23-year-old insisted that he continues to enjoy the sport despite failing to progress internationally.

“Right now, I want to concentrate fully on Selangor, who have respected and treated me very well,” he said. “I want to repay them with my full efforts and and win something with them.”
