The 24-year-old midfielder from Sumedang, West Java who last played for Persib Bandung in the Indonesian Super League appeared for the seniors in a friendly against the State President Cup team at the Likas synthetic pitch on Tuesday.

 He was employed by assistant coach Johnny Dominicus in a defensive midfielder role and showed some neat touches throughout the match which they won three-nil. Dado was voted Indonesia Super League U-21 best player in the 2008-9 season and had made 17 appearances for the national under-23 team from 2012-2014 and made his international senior debut in May 2014 against Dominican Republic.
