The decision of the general chairman of PSSI Mochamad Iriawan, welcoming the return of the Indonesian national team after the 2020 AFF Cup, received sharp criticism from a number of circles. He didn’t even think about it.

The Indonesian national team arrived in Jakarta, yesterday (2/1). The Shin Tae-yong troops immediately quarantined for ten days at the Sultan Hotel, in accordance with government regulations.

When the Indonesian national team arrived in the country, Iriawan and a number of PSSI staff welcomed him. This condition makes the public through social media wonder because it should not be done.

Warganet considered that the Indonesian national team should have immediately quarantined without the need to first meet with PSSI people. It is feared that Evan Dimas and his friends are contaminated because the corona virus has not gone away.

“I didn’t enter the room [pemain], I only welcome, give direction, and encourage only. It should be appreciated. Supporters [timnas Indonesia] also in front [hotel],” said Iriawan, when contacted by the media.

Iriawan said the welcome was a form of appreciation for the Indonesian national team, which had been fighting in the AFF Cup. Although, in the event the Garuda squad failed to win.

The Indonesian national team had to be willing to be the runner-up in the 2020 AFF Cup. The Red and White Fleet was defeated by Thailand in the final match with an aggregate of 6-2.

Failure to win the AFF Cup trophy, is the sixth felt by the Indonesian national team. Previously, they failed to win in 2000, 2002, 2004, 2010 and 2016.

“Players when they arrive are intercepted by immigration, they are asked, so what’s the difference with porters who carry suitcases? How is it different from the security forces who took pictures with them?” he said.

“The time, the ketum didn’t welcome him at all, the players also went straight in [kamar], they have swab and the result is also negative. Usually there are those who don’t like me,” he added.
