Ticket sales v Hong Kong & Singapore

The Jakarta Post today, not on line, reports tickets will be available on the gate for Indonesia's forthcoming friendlies. Prices range from 10,000 rupiah ($1.10) to 50,000 rupiah ($5.50). If I understand this correctly 27,500 tickets will be available v Hong Kong.

These will be Indonesia's first home friendlies since god knows when but I'm guessing the crowds will be on the low side. Indonesia are notorious for their profligacy in front of goal while Singapore, apart from their cricket score against Laos in the recent ASEAN Football Championship (11-0) are hardly net bulgers either as their recent record shows.

OK, now I'm confused! The Singapore FA website is saying the game at Bung Karno is an Under 23 international friendly and their squad is detailed here. The Indonesian U-23 play their pointless final Olympic Qualifier on 6th June in Vietnam, what the hell are they doing arranging a friendly for when it's the big boys who need the practise?
