Indonesia down Bahrain! (AFC Asian Cup 07)

10 07 2007

Asian Cup… get that ballGelora Bung Karno Stadium, Jakarta, Indonesia – In what could only be considered an upset, Indonesia has beaten FIFA’s 2004 most improved nation, Bahrain 2-1.

Playing quite aggressive ball in the first half, Indonesia scored at the 14th minute mark, Budi Sudarsono sliding it into the net. Not to be outdone, Bahrain managed to score 13 minutes later. From that point on the game devolved a bit, whilst I think the Indonesian team had the better of the play, some foolish errors (and cards) left me thinking “not yet another 1-1 draw”. But the Indonesian attack picked up, and Bambang Pamungkas slotted one home at the 64th min. Bahrain made a few choice substitutions to pressure the local defense, but it wasn’t to be. The siren rang a little after 90 minutes of game play, and Indonesia run out winners over a disappointing Bahrain.
