All Whites match in Indonesia cancelled

5:11 pm on 4 March 2009

The All Whites won't play a football match in Indonesia later this month because of security concerns.

The Indonesian Football Association has notified New Zealand Football that due to security concerns around legislative elections on 1 April, the match will not take place.

New Zealand play Thailand on 28 March in Bangkok and are looking to replace the Indonesian fixture with another match in Thailand or elsewhere in the region.

The decision to cancel the fixture was not linked to an attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team in Pakistan on Tuesday.
