Indonesia slapped with FIFA fine over match crowd trouble

Indonesia's national football association has been fined by FIFA over crowd trouble during a World Cup qualifier against Malaysia, the organisation said Wednesday.

The Football Association of Indonesia was slapped with a $45,000 sanction over the chaos in Jakarta last month, when Malaysian fans were threatened and pelted with projectiles during the visiting side's 3-2 win.

Malaysia's visiting youth and sports minister Syed Saddiq had to be evacuated from the match as violence broke out, sparking a formal apology from his Indonesian counterpart.

"PSSI respects the legal process and FIFA's decisions," the association's secretary general Ratu Tisha Destria in a Wednesday statement, adding that changes were being made so violence "will not happen in the future".
