Speaking about Indonesia, former Selangor hitman Bambang Pamungkas joined his team mates for their training session as he is expected to see some action in the tournament.

He was quoted by Jakarta Globe as saying;

"I came from my home to join the Indonesian national team training camp. As a professional, I hope that the Indonesian football dualism ends here.

"No more two 'national teams' and two [football] federations. I want to support the national team that is recognised by the AFF."

Meanwhile, the Philippines national team continued their training without midfielder OJ Portreria who is hospitalised after suffering dengue. The Azkals will play Singapore in a friendly match on Nov 15.
