1. Duel Andy Setyo vs Thannabalan Nadarajah
The absence of Hansamu Yama, coach Luis Milla hopes on players from PS PSI club. Moreover, solid performance and discipline has been shown by the former captain U-19 national team in this Eduar Tjong era.
Andy is a typical defender who is not adventurous. He played without compromise and discipline in guarding the defense of Indonesia. He is also calm in the play and not easily provoked provocation of opposing players.
But this toughness re-tested by the Malaysian striker, Thannabalan Nadarajah. At a meeting of U-23 Asia Cup qualifiers last month in Thailand, Andy already knows the greatness of the striker who scored one of his three goals nested into Satria Sama’s goal at the time.

Both players themselves are the brains of both teams attack. Even both teams are very dependent on these two players as creators of attack.
It was obvious when both were absent on the pitch. For example when the game against Vietnam, the absence of Evan made Indonesia repeatedly failed to drain the ball into the front lines. The result, in that match Indonesia almost did not threaten the defense squad Nguyen Huu Thang care.
Evan’s ability to supply the ball into the attack line of Indonesia is currently still no player to replace it. Not only that Evan is also a complete player, he is also good at controlling the ball, and looking for empty space.
In Malaysia dependence with the Pahang FA penggawa is also felt when he was reserved in the game against Singapore at that time they even lost 1-0.
But the entry of players who have full name Nor Azam Abdul Azih this change the rhythm of tiger play Malaya. They finally led 2-1 where he also managed to score a goal from outside the penalty box. It is also a proof if this player also has a high goal scoring instinct.
Apart from the comparison of individual abilities, Evan has an advantage in terms of the experience of matching at national and international level compared to Nor Azam.
In addition to playing in a more regular competition, Evan is also noted to have strengthened the Indonesian national team at various levels and international competitions. While Nor not even record senior caps of the national team.
3. Ezra Walian vs Matthew Davies
Both players are both naturalized products and both have high posture. Surely these two players will be dueling each other when receiving the top balls.
Ezra’s own name so own concern for coach Ong Kwim Swee remember he has experience in European level competition. Ezra’s glorious appearance on the contra game of Cambodia is considered dangerous for Malaysia. Moreover, he has scored one goal.
While the advantages Davies also skilled in reading the strategy opponent. Therefore, the Indonesian national team must have a sniper strategy to outwit Davies.
