TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Chairman of the Indonesian Football Association or PSSI, Mochamad Iriawan, said that PSSI did not register Dutch footballer Shayne Pattynama for the 2022 AFF Cup as his naturalization process is not yet complete.

"Not yet for Shayne, just Sandy Walsh and Jordi Amat have completed their naturalization," Said Iriawan at the Jakarta Ministry of Law and Human Rights Regional Office, Thursday, Nov. 17.

According to the man who is close with Iriawan, the naturalization of Shayne Pattynama is predicted to not be completed by the deadline for registering large numbers of players (maximum 70 names) for the 2022 AFF Cup on November 20.

Shayne, the 24-years-old player who is prominent in the Viking FK club in the Norwegian League, is known to have just obtained approval to change his nationality to become an Indonesian citizen from the DPR (Indonesia's House of Representatives) on Thursday, November 17, through a plenary meeting.

Furthermore, the Dutch footballer still has to wait for the Presidential Decree (Keppres) of the Republic of Indonesia which states to grant him Indonesian citizenship until receives approval from the Government of Indonesia.

If the decree is issued, Shayne must take an oath of allegiance as an Indonesian citizen at the Ministry of Law and Human Rights.

Previously, Sandy Walsh and Jordi Amat took almost two months from the approval of the DPR plenary meeting (September 20) to the process of taking the oath as Indonesian citizens (November 17) this year.

However, even when they became Indonesian citizens, neither Shayne, Sandi nor Jordi could immediately be part of the Indonesian national team before changing from their previous organization's federation to PSSI.

"Switching federation is a requirement from FIFA that must be met," said Iriawan.

The 2022 AFF Cup will be held from December 20 to January 16. During the tournament, the Indonesian national team is placed in Group A with Thailand, the Philippines, Cambodia and Brunei Darussalam.

PSSI targets Indonesia to win the 2022 AFF Cup. If it succeeds, the champion title will be the first in history for the "Garuda" squad.
