When we talk about the games in which Indonesia played, it was truthfully nail-biter. The first game became the moment when Indonesia would surpass by securing the lord during the 12th minute on the clock. The lord was secured effectively when the red and white team enhanced their dominance in the 16th minute.
During the second game, it was a chance for Indonesia to determine whether they would win the title or not. They fought with the Philippines, who no doubt played aggressively by constantly attacking the Indonesian team during the early game.
Dreams improved the killing spree during the 23rd minute, which opened up an opportunity for the Indonesian team to return to the situation. After this, Indonesia effectively defeated four Filipino players and won the game successfully with a 3-0 score.
