Kuwait vs Indonesia – LIVE Reddit Soccer 08/06/2022

Kuwait will host Indonesia at the Jaber Al-Ahmad International Stadium in Kuwait City on Wednesday in a Group A clash of the 2023 Asia Cup qualifiers. The Blue Waves are looking to return to the competition next year after missing the last one in the UAE due a disqualification. However, Vítezslav Lavicka’s side have produced mixed form this year, winning and losing twice apiece in their five games so far. Most recently, the Middle Eastern outfit saw off Singapore last week in a friendly. Indonesia, meanwhile, were also disqualified from participating in the 2019 Asia Cup due to a suspension from FIFA, missing the finals for the third time in a row.

The Garuda Team have built some momentum going into the qualifiers, though, going unbeaten in four games this year, winning twice. The national football team landed in Kuwait at 2:05 a.m. Arabian Standard Time (AST, or UTC+3) on Saturday to participate in the 2023 AFC Asian Cup qualification from June 8–15, 2022. The Indonesian contingent comprising 23 players and 20 officials was greeted enthusiastically at the airport and the hotel by dozens of Indonesian supporters residing in Kuwait. In a statement received on Saturday, Indonesian Ambassador to Kuwait, Lena Maryana, said that her party welcomed all team members.

“The Indonesian embassy along with the supporter group in Kuwait are ready to support the struggle of the Indonesian national team here,” she remarked. She informed that the embassy has requested 500 tickets from the Kuwait Football Association for Indonesian supporters so that they can directly support the team at the stadium. She also spoke with the technical director of the Indonesian Football Association (PSSI), Indra Sjafri, to discuss the preparations of the national team, including the summer weather challenge since currently, the average temperature in Kuwait can reach up to 45 degrees Celsius during the day.

The peak of summer usually occurs in July–August in Kuwait, with average temperatures surpassing 50 degrees Celsius. Meanwhile, Sjafri lauded the support of the Indonesian embassy and people in the Arabian country who welcomed the team although the players and officials arrived at an early hour. “The support of the Indonesian people in Kuwait will motivate the team,” he remarked. The Indonesian national team has been placed in the same group as Kuwait, Jordan, and Nepal for the qualifiers.
