JAKARTA – Jordi Amat is in the spotlight of Indonesian national team fans. This is inseparable from his recent performance which was considered to be declining and often caused blunders.
In the first two matches in Group F of the 2026 World Cup Qualifications in the Asian zone, Jordi Amat appeared from the first minute. However, during that time he made at least two fatal mistakes which resulted in goals for the opposing team.
During the match against Iraq, Jordi scored an own goal. Meanwhile, in the match against the Philippines, he lost the ball in one moment and it resulted in a goal for The Azkals.
Jordi’s appearance received a lot of criticism. In fact, there are also those who are starting to compare his performance when he played for the Johor Darul Ta’zim (Malaysia) club and the Indonesian national team itself.
So, why is Jordi’s appearance so different when he plays for the Indonesian national team and his club?
The reason Jordi’s appearance is very different when playing for the Indonesian national team and JDT
1. Differences between Club and National Team Levels
It cannot be denied that the levels of clubs and national teams are clearly different. There is a typical player who excels with the club, but sluggish when playing for the national team. On the other hand, there are also players who perform well with the national team, but are not so good when they are at their club.
This also applies to the case of Jordi Amat. Recently, his performance in the Indonesian national team has been in the spotlight because of a number of blunders he made. In fact, recently he succeeded in bringing the Johor Darul Ta’zim club to lock in the 2023 Malaysian Super League title.
There are many factors that make the levels of clubs and national teams different. For example, such as the quality of teammates, the opponents they face, and the coach’s strategy.
