Denpasar Sound – The cancellation of the U-20 World Cup draw, which was supposed to be held in Bali on March 31, is currently being discussed.
Many football fans and the public were disappointed with the decision. The announcement regarding the cancellation was made earlier by a member of the PSSI executive committee (Exco) Arya Sinulingga.
Of course, this is a serious problem for Indonesia because it could threaten the future of Indonesian football.
PSSI is currently calculating the negative impact of the cancellation and looking for the best solution for Indonesian football.

Although PSSI has not officially received information from FIFA regarding the reason for the cancellation, this cancellation occurred after the Governor of Bali Wayan Koster expressed his rejection of the Israeli National Team to compete in this prestigious event.
The reason is because Israel has colonized Palestine. Inevitably, the cancellation was much regretted by football fans.
Shortly after this news surfaced, PSSI’s official Instagram account was busy with comments from netizens who were disappointed with the news.
Many regret that political issues should not be brought up to the realm of sports.
“WKWKWKWK the Palestinian ambassador in Indonesia just invited Israel to come,” said the account @tedyy174.

“This is how a sporting event happens if it is held in a country that likes to interfere in political affairs,” said the account @riyantodwisyah_putra.
“Get ready for Indonesian football to be blacklisted when the national team is doing well,” warned @akmalramli04.
“Palestine doesn’t have a problem with it. These are Indonesian politicians who are looking for votes,” wrote the account @febypratamaard.
“If it’s like this, it’s better not to apply to be the host,” added @kaka.adhyaksa. (*/Ana AP)
