DBasia.news – U19 Qatar coach Bruno Pinheiro was kicked by the referee outside the pith before the match against U19 Indonesia ended.

Apparently, he left the bench area when the match against U19 Indonesia was about to end. The Portuguese coach was on the pitch for a while.

Due to the ejection, he didn’t attend the press conference after the match.

The provocative act happened just a few seconds before the second match of Group A 2018 U19 Asian Cup ended at Gelora Bung Karno Main Stadium, Senayan, Jakarta, Sunday (21/10). Due to the provocation, U19 national team defender Firza Andika felt disturbed while executing the free-kick.

The moment was a disadvantage for U19 national team who are following the situation. After the 1-6 defeat, the U19 national team scored 4 goals before the match ended.

U19 Indonesia national team coach Indra Sjafri regrets Bruno’s act that allowed everything in order to make his team win. Moreover, Indra said, the tournament is specified for the young players.

“Once again, I’m a bit regretting because this is the competition for the youth. It must be fair play. I regret the act of U19 Qatar coach who entered the pitch. Lesson learned. I regret that,” Indra said.

In the last match of Group A, U19 national team will play against the U19 United Arab Emirates. Todd Rivaldo Ferre and friends must win the match one by one to qualify for the next round.

“After the match, we still have the opportunity. If we win against U19 UAE, we can pass it,” Indra said.
