Indonesia dominated their friendly at home to Puerto Rico but failed to break down their opponents as the match finished goalless in Sleman.
The 2016 AFF Suzuki Cup runner-up created several great opportunities during the game but lack of proper finishing touches as the Perto Rico’s goalkeeper Cody Laurendi also showed a brilliant display.
Bali United star Irfan Bachdim was lively early on, creating one chance for Marinus Wanewar who saw his shot blocked by Laurendi.
Hector Ramos almost scored a heart-breaking goal for the hosts in the late minute of the game but his shot was denied by the bar.
“It was a disappointing result,” said Indonesia head coach Luis Milla. “The game was entertaining and our players were able to make several chances, but we need to train harder.”
“As I said before, this young team have improved very well. I think we need to do more training after the [Eid Mubarak] holiday.”
This was the second friendly game for Indonesia this month after previously on last Thursday they defeated Cambodia 2-0 in Phnom Penh.
