Baggott and Indonesia in Final Action
Wednesday, 29th Dec 2021 10:44

Young Blues centre-half Elkan Baggott’s Indonesia face Thailand in the first leg of the AFF Suzuki Cup final at Singapore’s National Stadium in Kallang this afternoon.

The 19-year-old won his fifth full cap and made his fourth substitute appearance of the tournament as Indonesia beat the hosts, who ended the match with eight men after receiving three red cards, 4-2 after extra-time in the second leg of their semi-final on Christmas Day to go through 5-3 on aggregate.

Thailand beat Vietnam 2-0 over two legs in the other semi-final. The second leg of the final is on New Year’s Day.

Colchester-raised Baggott, who scored his first international goal in the 4-1 victory over Malaysia in the group games, was born in Thailand to an English father and Indonesian mother.

The defender, who ended last season on loan at King’s Lynn, made his senior Blues debut in the Papa John’s Trophy tie against Gillingham in 2020/21 and was an unused sub for the League One games against Sunderland and Crewe in January.

He signed his first professional contract with Town the same month, a deal which runs to 2023 with the club having an option to keep him for a further season.

This is such good experience for him. Wonder if KM might have a look at him when he gets back, if we play a 3 we’ll need extra cover and especially someone who can carry the ball and pick a pass under pressure. I don’t know if Elkan can do that but he seemed pretty comfortable on the ball in the glimpses we’ve seen so far.

Anyone else been on his Instagram lately? The amount of followers he gets is crazy.
