JAKARTA
Edy Mulyadi dismissed the news that Sampdoria goalkeeper Emil Audero would be naturalized. In a short video circulating in cyberspace, Edy said that Emil would not be in the uniform of the Indonesian national team.

Emil is a goalkeeper who is widely discussed because he has Indonesian ancestry. The Mataram-born player was once called up to the Garuda squad ahead of the 2016 AFF Cup, but he flatly refused and chose to focus on his career in Italy.

Recently, PSSI plans to invite Emil to the Garuda squad. However, the father of the player rejected the naturalization plan. Edy revealed that his son has ambitions to play in the World Cup with the Italian national team.

“If Emil wants to play in the World Cup, he has to take it there (Italian National Team) right, don’t our people qualify for Asia, let alone the World Cup, don’t worry, what’s the prize here?” continued Edy.

Furthermore, Edy also said that the competition in the Italian squad for the regular position of goalkeeper was just media fritters. As is known, Donnarumma’s position in the position of goalkeeper for the team nicknamed Gli Azzurri is irreplaceable.

Until this news was revealed, Emil had packed 127 appearances with Sampdoria. Emil is a Juventus academy education, who was loaned to Venice, then loaned to Sampdoria, before being made permanent by a team nicknamed the Blucerchiati.
