Alberto Goncalves cannot join Indonesia U22 in SEA Games 30th's campaign due to injury

Manahati Lestusen and Alberto Goncalves have been removed from Indonesia U22 team list by coach Indra Sjafri ahead of the 30th SEA Games due to injury.

Since his naturalization and contribution to the Indonesian national team and Olympic team, Alberto Goncalves has also proven his value. He currently has 10 goals in 12 appearances for Tim Garuda. This striker was the top scorer of the Indonesian championship 2011-2012 season with 25 goals.

Indonesia U22 coach Indra Sjafri summoned Alberto Goncalves to the focus list, with the goal of improving the quality of attack. However, Alberto Goncalves was confirmed last minute will not be able to compete with Indonesia U22 in SEA Games 2019 because of a new injury.

Coach Indra Sjafri confirmed in Bolasport: “After the examination, the doctor team said that Alberto Goncalves and Manahati Lestusen were both injured. So both will not be able to attend the SEA Games 2019".

The other two players will be added by coach Indra Sjafri, but he refuses to reveal who they are. Bolasport, meanwhile, points out that Evan Dimas, Hansamu Yama or Zulfiand will be called players.

At SEA Games 30th, U22 Indonesia is in Group B along with Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, Laos and Brunei. Coach Indra Sjafri's team has planned to play two friendly matches against Iran U22 on November 13th and 16th before leaving for the Philippines to the SEA Games 2019.
