Oddang The Man!
Two goals by Andi Oddang in their 2-1 win over Persiwa meant that PSM finally slipped into second place in the Indonesia Super League but having played more games and being a number of points behind Persipura means the Black Pearls won't be that worried just yet.
But really this post is about Andi Oddang. He netted a few goals for Persebaya last season that ultimately weren't enough to save them from relegation but he showed himself to be a tidy enough player.
Given a goalscoring opportunity Oddang always seems to have that extra moment mentally and will go for placement rather than swinging his boot that is the preferred option for so many.
With the AFF Cup beginning next week it was the perfect time to remind coach Alfred Riedl of the quality in his own bacyard. But with the newly Indonesian Christian Gonzalez netting three in two perhaps there was never any hope of Oddang getting a call up.
