    • 90' FT Indonesia XI 0-2 Liverpool. Game, set & match Liverpool, but the Reds will have to improve their finishing against better opposition. 2-0, but should have been four or five.
    • 88' While Liverpool have not been great tonight, at least that goal does something to reflect their dominance tonight.
    • 87' GOAL! Sterling makes it 2-0! Indonesia caught short at the back as Liverpool break from their own half through Assaidi, who squares the ball to Sterling, who strokes into the empty net.
    • 85' The stadium has become very smoky - flares have been lit away to the left.
    • 83' Handbags in the Indonesia box. Skrtel is involved. This isn't very 'friendly'.
    • 81' That was the biggest chance yet for Liverpool, who just haven't been clinical enough in front of goal. This proves they need Suarez - or a very good replacement for him.
    • 80' Big chance for Liverpool. A ball over the top by Henderson finds Sterling with just the keeper to beat, but he lashes his shot into the side netting when he must score.
    • 78' Wisdom concedes a corner but Indonesia are unable to take advantage and Liverpool clear.
    • 76' Indonesia should take credit from their display here. They did, of course, ship seven goals to Arsenal a few days ago.
    • 74' Liverpool are clearly much fresher than Indonesia since those eight changes made by Rodgers. They're piling the pressure on Indonesia, but are unable to finish their chances.
    • 72' Assaidi has been very positive since coming on and his deep cross from the left finds Ibe at the far post, but his header loops onto the roof of the net.
    • 70' Liverpool chance! Assaidi crosses from the right, Borini misses his kick but it reaches Sterling, who leathers it against the top of the bar again.
    • 68' Borini, who is now the lone striker, almost makes an instant impact. Henderson pokes the ball through to him, but his low shot from 20 yards is just wide.
    • 66' With the exception of Gerrard & Enrique, who have already been subbed, Liverpool have replaced all eight remaining outfield players. Mignolet is the only Liverpool player that started the match that is still on.
    • 65' Liverpool preparing what looks like about seven substitutes!
    • 64' Liverpool concede a corner, which is headed just over at the near post. Kolo Toure not happy with Liverpool's defending there and has a right go at his teammates.
    • 63' Lucas has played well today, by the way. Great to see him fit and back playing again.
    • 61' Jack Robinson has a go from distance, but his effort is palmed away.
    • 59' Indonesia beginning to show a bit more adventure as they look for an equaliser - but this is leaving gaps at the back for Liverpool to exploit.
    • 57' This time Coutinho fires over. Aspas collects the ball on the edge of the box and skips into space before feeding Coutinho, whose first time shot flies just over. Chance.
    • 56' A Ronny Rosenthal moment for Aspas, who collects a through ball and rounds the keeper but, off balance, spoons the ball into the stands when he only had to stroke into the empty net. Oh dear.
    • 55' Joe Allen plays a long ball forward towards Aspas, but it's wildly over hit and runs through to the keeper.
    • 53' Johnson, who has been awful at times, gives the ball away very cheaply and Indonesia attack down the left - but Liverpool manage to clear their lines.
    • 52' Clever reverse ball by Downing to Aspas, but the former Celta Vigo striker is offside. Unlucky as that was a good move.
    • 50' Countinho threads the ball down the left wing to Aspas, whose dangerous cross is cleared.
    • 48' Downing and Alberto combine to find Johnson on the overlap, but Johnson's cross goes straight out of play. Alberto's pass just a little heavy for Johnson.
    • 47' Liverpool subs: Allen & Robinson on, Gerrard & Enrique off.
    • 46' We're back underway in Jakarta.
    • 45' HT Indonesia XI 0-1 Liverpool.
    • 44' Alberto is really growing into the contest and plays an inch perfect through ball for Downing, who takes a heavy touch and the move slows down. Downing appears to have moved to the left now.
    • 42' Chance for Liverpool as Aspas is played through nd goes for the early shot, but it deflects off the last defender for a corner. Aspas could have taken an extra touch there.
    • 41' Indonesia playing a counter-attacking strategy and they almost catch Liverpool out, but Van Dijk is (just) offside.
    • 40' Another corner for Liverpool. Gerrard's short free-kick finds Johnson, whose through ball is stabbed out. Indonesia will be happy for half time now; Liverpool beginning to camp themselves in their half.
    • 39' Johnson wins another corner for Liverpool. The right back has had plenty of runs down that side. Downing's low corner to the near post is headed clear.
    • 38' Long ball by Downing almost finds Aspas, but it it runs through to the keeper.
    • 36' Gerrard feigns to shoot then tries to drive into the box but is clearly blocked. Nothing given though.
    • 35' Liverpool clear the corner. The Reds being given a good workout here.
    • 34' Mignolet forced into a save to his right as Van Dijk lets fly with a rocket from 25 yards. Mignolet palms it around the post for a corner.
    • 32' Liverpool hit the bar! Lovely play by Alberto, who quickly shifts the ball onto his right foot on the edge of the box and fires a lovely shot at goal that grazes the top of the bar. Keeper was rooted.
    • 31' Chance for Liverpool as Jose Enrique's ball in is fumbled by the keeper and Coutinho almost sweeps in the rebound.
    • 29' Liverpool have taken their foot off the pedal in the last few minutes. They have lost the intensity of the early stages.
    • 27' Buscomi clears the Liverpool wall with his free-kick but it sails a couple of metres wide.
    • 26' Gerrard would have been booked for that in the Premier League.
    • 25' Gerrard makes a high challenge on the edge of the box and Indonesia have a free-kick in a dangerous area.
    • 23' Liverpool focusing their attacks down the left wing with Alberto. Downing, on the right, not seeing so much of the ball.
    • 21' Aspas makes a smart run behind the Indonesia defence and is picked out by Alberto. Aspas has made an energetic start to this one.
    • 19' Agger finds himself in unfamiliar territory as he races forward to collect a through ball from Gerrard, but the keeper is quick off his line to deny him.
    • 17' Coutinho is having a blinder out there. Okay, it's against poor opposition, but he looks very sharp and is pulling all the strings.
    • 15' Mignolet is called into action as a long ball catches the Liverpool defence out. The keeper parries the ball away and then has a moan at his defence for allowing that to happen.
    • 14' Johnson gallops free down the right but his low cross towards Aspas in the middle is smothered by the keeper.
    • 13' That goal has ignited Liverpool, who are giving Indonesia the run around at the moment.
    • 12' Brendan Rodgers was unmoved as the goal went in, but he must have been very impressed with that finish by Coutinho.
    • 10' GOAL! Coutinho scores for Liverpool! The Brazilian gets a lucky break on the edge of the box but there's nothing lucky about the finish - a very classy finish into the bottom corner. 1-0 Liverpool.
    • 8' Johnson sticks the ball in the net but he's flagged offside.
    • 7' There was huge noise as Indonesia launched that attack! The home fans will bring the house down if they actually score tonight!
    • 6' Coutinho loses the ball and Indonesia break down the right, but the deep cross is calmly chested back to Mignolet by Glen Johnson.
    • 5' A very open and competitive start. Neither side keeping the ball for very long.
    • 4' Downing wins a corner on the right and plays it short to Gerrard, but the skipper's ball in is dealt with easily.
    • 3' Agger is tested down the Liverpool left, but he makes a good sliding challenge to halt the Indonesia attack.
    • 2' You'd think this is Anfield ahead of a Merseyside derby. Tremendous atmosphere inside the National Stadium.
    • 1' KICK OFF. We are underway in Jakarta.
    • 14.25 We're still awaiting confirmation of the Indonesia team. Five minutes until kick off in Jakarta.
    • 14.20 LIVERPOOL team to face Indonesia: Mignolet, Johnson, Jose Enrique, Agger, Toure, Lucas, Gerrard, Alberto, Downing, Coutinho, Aspas. Subs: Jones, Assaidi, Henderson, Spearing, Allen, Borini, Sterling, Kelly, Skrtel, Flanagan, Wisdom, Robinson, Ibe.
