The Football Federation of Indonesia (PSSI) has turned down an offer to play a friendly match with Canada due to schedule conflicts, PSSI general secretary Azwan Karim confirmed.
Initially, South Korea had proposed to play a match with Canada in November, but due to a schedule change, the South Korea Football Association (KFA) decided to cancel the match and offer Indonesia as a replacement to play against Canada.
However, Indonesia has already planned to play two friendly matches against Vietnam and Myanmar in early November.
“Canada has offered us to play a friendly match with them in November. However we already have two matches to play around that time, so we have to decline”, PSSI general secretary Azwan Karim said.
Indonesia will be in group A at the upcoming AFF Suzuki Cup, along with four-time champions Singapore, defending champions Thailand and co-hosts the Philippines.
