BEFORE In the 2020 AFF Cup final, Indonesian football fans reminisced about the meeting between the Indonesian National Team (Timnas) against Thailand in the 2022 World Cup Qualification for the Asian Zone which took place in June 2021 ago. This is inseparable from the many video footage showing the match which ended as strong as 2-2.
Interestingly, from several videos circulating, the moment when the Indonesian national team’s goal was being attacked by Thailand was the most visible. Because at that moment, the goalkeeper of the Indonesian national team, Nadeo Argawinata, looked angry at the disorganized defense of the Garuda squad.
Even Nadeo issued harsh words to his partner, Rizky Ridho, who failed to cover the defense line properly. The funny thing is, after saying those harsh words, Nadeo immediately apologized because of his anger with Rizky Ridho.

The funny moment occurred when the Indonesia vs Thailand national team match entered a period of injury time. At that time, Nadeo, who is often said to have a face like the Chelsea goalkeeper, namely Kepa Arrizabalaga was annoyed with Rizky Ridho.
At that time the Garuda squad’s defense was being attacked by Thai players. Fortunately, the team nicknamed The War Elephant failed to enter the ball.
However, as soon as the ball left the field, Nadeo immediately headed towards Rizky and shouted while uttering harsh words typical of East Java. Rizky, who is from Surabaya, certainly knows what Nadeo, who was born in Kediri, said.
When emotions are overflowing, Nadeo then says astagfirullah. That’s what made the Kepa twin goalkeeper into the spotlight after the video footage of the Indonesia vs Thailand national team.
