English Premier League Team Semangati Indonesia U-22
The failure of the U-22 national team to reach the final of SEA Games 2017 received attention from two English League clubs, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur. Through the official Twitter account in Indonesian language, they give sympathy and appreciation for the struggle of foster children Luis Milla.
Indonesia U-22 national team stalled in the semifinals of the SEA Games after losing to Malaysia 0-1, Saturday (26/08/2017). Playing at Shah Alam Stadium, Selangor, a Garuda squad conceded in the 87th minute through an attacking striker Thanabalan Nadarajah.
With this result, Indonesia U-22 national team repeated the failure of SEA Games 2015 Singapore. In the tournament two years ago, they lost to Thailand.
“We’ll take your hat off at #GamesGames2017, Garuda Muda !,” wrote Manchester City in his account @mancityIndo.
On Twitter, the name of goalkeeper Satria Tama soared as a trending topic of the world along with City winger Raheem Sterling thanks to a brilliant performance throughout the game. Satria Tama did some important rescue to make the goal of Indonesia not conceded until the 87th minute.
Although not qualified for the final SEA Games, Evan Dimas and his friends can still make a difference to get a bronze medal. They will challenge Myanmar who lost 0-1 to Thailand in the other semi-final party.
