UNACCEPTABLE: Philippines host feeding pork to Indonesian players in SEA Games

Many members of the Indonesia U22 football team claimed that they ate pork as food in SEA Games, that they thought it was beef. As a result, they supposed the Philippines disrespected their religion.

The host nation of 30th SEA Games went on being criticized for the poor preparation.

Before Indonesia U22's complaint, many other teams namely Thailand, Cambodia, and Myanmar accused that they were treated badly in the Philippines.

The hotel where they stay not only did not have enough room for all teams but also it was too far away from the training ground. As a result, many people had to sleep on the floor, and they trained right outside the hotel.

But the worst thing is the shortage of food and water. To solve that problem, Myanmar U22 players cooked themselves before the first match.

Moreover, the host country also served inappropriate food for many players. Some members of the Indonesia U22 team said that the Philippines used pork to cook almost food, that they could not eat because they are Muslims.

In some cases, they even ate pork while they thought it was beef. Indonesian players considered it disrespected their religion.

One Indonesian player said: "It is unacceptable for us. According to Islamic law, pork is forbidden food, so we must not eat it. How can we play well without being treated with proper food? But we can do nothing but look forward to the following days".
