It's hard to believe when I saw Indonesia vs Bahrain last night, that had resulted 10-0 for Bahraini victory. Many predicted Indonesia would be lost, but not like last night. Indonesian primary goal-keeper must out of field in first 3 minutes and 4 penalties in a match (luckily only 2 penalty kicks succeeded).
I knew if the referee on the match, Andree El Hadad was well-known controversial in world wide media. But I don't want to criticize about it, FIFA will works on it.
This result can't be separated from chaos of internal Indonesian FA. All players from ISL (Indonesia Super League) are banned to join Indonesian National Team by PSSI (Indonesian FA). Because new regime of Indonesian FA (Djohar and friends) has considered ISL as 'ILLEGAL LEAGUE', though it has already run since 2008 as professional league. Indonesian FA obtruded IPL (Indonesian Premier League) to be highest 'professional' league in Indonesian league.
By that policy, Indonesian FA quibbled if they can only send low-experience players from IPL due to 'Illegal' status of ISL, even though most of them (IPL selection) are lack of International experience, particularly on away match. That's why Qatari FA sent protest toward Indonesian FA and ask for Indonesian seriousness for the match that held in Manama Stadium.
If Indonesian FA rather prioritize their private interest than national interest, whilst Malaysian FA listed their striker that play in 'ILLEGAL LEAGUE' (ISL) for Pelita Jaya FC, Safee Sali. Ironically, Malaysian player who play in ISL, Safee Sali could actually strengthen the Malayan Tiger team to face Philippines Azkal, several hours before the match Indonesia vs Bahrain! A big question directly addressed to the parent sport of soccer in Indonesia. Is that true if FIFA restrict a player to stick up his country's national team?
Finally, I found in FIFA's website that they recognized that match, that held on February 29, 2012 cons Philippines (you can check on FIFA's website)

My Solution to Resolve:
PSSI (Indonesian FA) should takes side for national interest, instead of Stockholder of any league! We have to admit that IPL seems like newly amateur league, so they need to learn from ISL how to manage professional league. Simply do recognition to both leagues for tentatively and choose the best in future for First Division of professional league in Indonesia. People can judge which the best for nation!
