Osvaldo Haay Refuses to be a Hero
U-22 national team midfielder Osvaldo Haay refused to be seen as the savior who prevented the team from defeating against Thailand in the 2017 SE Group Games’ first B match at Shah Alam Stadium on Tuesday (8/15/2017).
The match ended in a goalless draw. Indonesia lagged first in the first half by a goal created by Chaiwat Buran in the 14th minute.
The new Young Garuda squad can equalize through goals from Septian David from the penalty spot in the 61st minute. Referee Wang Di (China) pointed to a white spot after Osvaldo Haay violated the opponent.
Osvaldo stated that the mere goal of Indonesian wayang is not solely his contribution. According to Osvaldo, it was all because of the hard work of the team.
“The penalty was not my contribution, but it was the result of the hard work of all my friends in the field,” Osvaldo told BolaSport.com on Wednesday (16/08/2017).
Furthermore, Indonesia will fight the Philippines at the Shah Alam Stadium on Thursday (17/08/2017). This match coincides with the 72nd Birthday of Independence of the Republic of Indonesia.
“For the next game, we focus and concentrate again to achieve maximum results.We ask the prayers of all Indonesian people,” said this Persipura Jayapura player.
