After Portuguese leave the island, Indonesia invaded the Island and took their cultured and Identity. East Timor gained independence from Indonesia in 2000 following more than 20 years of occupation at the end of the Portuguese rule, which resulted in a long running battle against Jakarta-led forces.

The biggest defeat was Malaysia scoring 11-0 at the 2009 SEA Games.Timor Leste have major improvement at 2011 SEA Games, when they use oversea players from Brazil and Australia whom their parents are exile from Invasion at 1975. These players contribute success at the two matches at SEA Games; especially, Murilo de Almeida who score 3 goals.
