Ipswich Town defender Elkan Baggott earned his 18th international cap this afternoon, but his Indonesia side were thrashed 5-1 by Iraq in their first World Cup qualifying match.

Shin Tae-yong's men travelled to Basra for their opening game of Group F, where Baggott started on the left side of a back three in front of a crowd of around 65,000 supporters.

An early strike from Bashar Resan and an own-goal from former Swansea City defender Jordi Amat put the hosts in control, but Shayne Pattynama's finish in first-half stoppage time gave Indonesia hope of turning things around.

It wasn't to be, however, as Osama Rashid and Youssef Amyn both found the back of the net before AFC Wimbledon's Ali Al-Hamadi rounded off the win late on to put Iraq top of the group.

Indonesia will travel to the Philippines for their next game on Tuesday morning (11am). They were beaten 2-0 by Vietnam this afternoon, leaving them in third place on goal difference.
