On the evening of Wednesday 20th August 2014, a squad of 24 Indonesian footballers and their Indonesian Coach, Boy Pasaribu, were accompanied by a small support crew at the Soekarno Hatta International Airport and waited nervously to board the Qantas flight direct to Sydney, then on to Melbourne, departing Jakarta at about 8pm.

Check-in and boarding went off without a hitch and seats were taken, the plane departed with all in tow and moods relaxed. Before long the in-flight meals were served and it was really happening, Indonesia was on the way to the International Cup for the first time!

After a relaxing couple of days settling into Melbourne and attending events at Federation Square and the MCG, the squad began to prepare for Game 1 v Nauru. The game was being streamed to interested audiences around the globe and friends back in Indonesia were gathering to witness history unfold.
