Indonesia Player Ratings: Defense flops in disastrous Suzuki Cup opener

It was a goal-fest in the AFF Suzuki Cup opener with Thailand just managing to see off Indonesia, but the Garudas definitely deserve some credit for their performance. FFT gives ratings of the Indonesian players... 

Kurnia Meiga 4.5

After conceding four goals, Meiga will definitely be unhappy with his performance.

He should have done better with Thailand’s first goal, as it was his mix-up with Yanto Basna that allowed Peerapat Notechaiya to slam home the opener.

Beny Wahyudi 6

Right-back Wahyudi had a decent outing and it was his cross that led to Indonesia’s equaliser.

However, he did not offer Andik Vermansyah much support going forward and he can do better.

He was also caught ball watching when Peerapat struck the opener.

Lestaluhu Abduh 5.5

Thailand found plenty of space down his end and he was clearly troubled by their penetrative runs.

Yanto Basna 4

Twice he failed to clear his lines and it resulted in goals for Thailand. Had a horrible day out for sure.

Was caught out of position a few times too and will need to improve dramatically.

Fachruddin Aryanto 5.5

Arytanto was not helped by Basna’s poor performance but he needs to question himself too for not attempting to block Chanathip Songkrasin’s pass when Indonesia were chasing the game at 3-2.

That pass allowed Teerasil Dangda to sneak in and score the killer goal, putting an end to Indonesia’s hopes of getting a point. 

Rizky Pora 6

Was lively throughout and tried to make things happen. His cross to pick out Boaz Solossa was superb and it resulted in a goal.

Bayu Pradana 5

He offered nothing much going forward and also did not excel defensively.

Stefano Lilipaly 5.5

Tried his best to trouble Thailand’s three-man defence and could have got himself on the scoresheet on a few occasions.

Andik Vermansyah 6

One of the few to have played outside Indonesia in recent years, Andik’s performance was a little bit disappointing.

He had bags of pace, was not afraid to take on his marker and got in many crosses.

However, those crosses lacked accuracy and he should be doing much better.

Lerby Eliandry 6.5

Scored the equaliser for Indonesia with a solid header. Ran his socks off and kept trying to get into scoring position for Indonesia.

Boaz Solossa 7

Captain of Indonesia, Solossa did lead by example as he was a nuisance to Thailand’s defence.

He scored Indonesia’s first goal and could have two more to his name, had Thailand goalkeeper Kawin Thamsatchanan not pull off several big saves to deny him.

Substitutes

Zulham Zamrun N/A

Came on for Eliandry but had too little time to make and impact.

Evan Dimas N/A

Did not start the game as he was short on match fitness, but also had too little time to make any impact after coming on for Andik in the 82nd minute.
