The coach of the Indonesian women’s national team, Rudy Eka Priyambada, criticized the referee’s leadership in the match against Malaysia. According to him, there were several decisions by the field court that were detrimental to his foster children.
The Indonesian women’s national team drew against Malaysia in the continuation of Group A of the AFF Women’s Cup. The match ended with the score 1-1 at the Binan Football Stadium, Manila, Wednesday (6/7) night WIB.
Indeed, the Indonesian women’s national team has a great chance to win the match. Garuda Pertiwi took the lead in the 74th minute through Sheva Imut Furyzcha’s goal.
It’s a shame the victory that was ahead was dispersed. Malaysia equalized two minutes before the game was completed through goals scored by Steffi Sarge Kaur.
“We are really disappointed with the result of this game. It feels unfair because the referee’s decision was not right. But this is the match,” Rudy was quoted as saying on the PSSI official website.
As a result of the draw, the Indonesian women’s national team had to settle for fifth place in the standings. Vivi Oktavia Riski and friends collected one point from the two that were played.
In the inaugural match, the Indonesian women’s national team was destroyed by Thailand. The Red and White troops were defeated by a landslide score of four goals without reply.
Australia is the next opponent faced by the Indonesian women’s national team. The match was held at the Rizal Memorial Stadium, Friday (8/7).
“In the next match I will focus on restoring the mentality of the players,” said the 39-year-old man.
