FIFA World Cup

Indonesia, under the name Dutch East Indies, was the first Asian team to participate in the World Cup when they qualified to the 1938 tournament. A 6-0 first-round loss in Reims to eventual finalists Hungary remains the country's only appearance in the World Cup.
In 1958, the team tasted their first World Cup action as Indonesia in the qualifying rounds. They got past China in the first round, but subsequently refused to play their next opponents Israel due to political issues. The team subsequently suffered a ban from FIFA World Cup from 1958 to 1974 due to unfavorable internal and external political situation. It was only almost two decades later that Indonesia returned to the fold.
