World Cup-bound Iceland to play in Indonesia

Indonesia national team will feature in two international friendlies involving World Cup-bound Iceland in January.

It was announced on Wednesday that Iceland are set to play two games during their tour in Indonesia, against national team side and a best XI selection team, on January 11 and 14.

“Iceland’s visit will be an opportunity for Indonesian football,” said Marsal Masita, Football Association of Indonesia’s (PSSI) deputy secretary-general for business development in a statement.

“We can learn a lot from them and we will also hold youth and coaching sessions with the Iceland team.”

Tiny Iceland, population 330.000, have made sporting history by becoming the smallest nation ever to qualify for the football World Cup when they travel to Russia next year.
