Indonesia U-22 will assemble in Karawaci from April 20 to April 25 in preparation for the 2017 SEA Games. The team’s head coach, Luis Milla, has called up 26 players for the training camp this time.

There have been talks about a change in the front line, with Muhammad Dimas Drajad called up to replace Ahmad Nur Hardianto.
