BREAKING: PSSI confirm postponing all national team matches until October

Due to preventing the risks of the coronavirus outbreak, matches between the Indonesia national team and Thailand, the UAE, and Vietnam will be postponed until October.

Originally, the Garuda team under the guidance of South Korean coach Shin Tae Yong will play against Thailand on March 26th. A few days later, the Indonesia team will take on UAE before facing Vietnam on June 4th.

However, that schedule was changed because of the coronavirus outbreak. Recently, Indonesia confirmed that there were numerous patients suffered from the COVID-19 virus in their country.

As a result, they had to issue some regulations to prevent the risks of the epidemic outbreak. One of them is to hold all national league matches behind closed doors, and they also considered delaying following FIFA's order.

As a result, the Indonesia team has to cancel the training camp ahead of matches in the World Cup qualification round. It does not seem to be a positive sign for coach Shin Tae Yong when he wants to know more about his players.

Although they worked together some days, the Garuda team has not played any official matches since Shin took the role.

It will affect his schedule work on the way to reform the Indonesia team, especially when they will compete in the AFF Cup at the end of this year.

For a coach who used to guide the South Korea team in the World Cup as Shin, his only target is to win that competition as his fellow countryman Park Hang Seo did with the Vietnam team 2 years ago.
