The Gelora Bung Karno National Stadium is expected to be painted Red on Saturday with Liverpool gracing the pitch to face Indonesia XI at 20:30 local time on July 21, 2013. The gates are set to open two hours before kick-off as a full house is anticipated.
Brendand Rodgers and his men are buoyant following last weekend’s 4-0 demolition of Preston North End. The outcome of this friendly sent out a clear message of Liverpool’s intent to start the 2013/14 season in the strongest way possible.
Debutants like Iago Aspas and newcomers Kolo Toure, Luis Alberto and Simon Mignolet made a good account of themselves. The mood of the Merseyside Reds’s camp in Jakarta is on a high despite strong speculations in the media that star player Luis Suarez is on his way out of Anfield.
Most importantly for Liverpool, Saturday’s Asia Tour friendly against Indonesia XI marks Steven Gerrard’s return to action. The iconic midfielder had to miss the remainder of the 2012/13 campaign due to a shoulder injury.
After recovering from his surgery, Gerrard will do what he does best with the captain’s armband tightened to his shirt.
