Indonesia will not compete in the joint 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ and AFC Asian Cup 2019 qualifiers following a decision taken at the extraordinary meeting of the FIFA Executive Committee on 30 May 2015.

The Executive decided to suspend the Football Association of Indonesia (PSSI) until the PSSI would be able to comply with its obligations under arts. 13 and 17 of the FIFA Statutes. This decision resulted from the effective “take over” of the activities of PSSI by the Indonesian authorities.

In agreement with the Asian Football Confederation, the PSSI have been advised of the national team’s disqualification from the joint qualifiers as detailed above. All of Indonesia’s matches from Group F of the joint qualifying competition are thus deleted.
