The Football Association of Indonesia has invited Viet Nam to take part in two friendly matches against its national squad, but the Viet Nam Football Federation (VFF) has yet to accept the invitation.
The VFF says whether or not Viet Nam accept the invitation depends on the result of the draw of the ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Suzuki Cup 2012 to be held in Bangkok, Thailand, on July 11. Viet Nam will play against Indonesia if both teams are not drawn in the same group.
Viet Nam met Indonesia in last year's semi-final of the 26th Southeast Asian Games where they lost 2-0.
