Indian team begin preparatory camp in Mumbai

The Indian players warm-up during a training session.

Bengaluru November 6: The Indian senior national team’s preparatory Camp for the forthcoming AFC Asian Cup Qualifier match against Myanmar began on Monday (November 6) in Mumbai. The squad will be camping in Mumbai till November 11 and proceed to Goa the next day.

The match against Myanmar is slated for November 14.

From the list of 28 probables announced earlier by National Coach Stephen Constantine, all players barring an injured Rowllin Borges and Nikhil Poojary have attended the camp. Both Borges and Poojary picked up injuries while training for their respective Clubs and have hence, been ruled out for the match against Myanmar.

India have already qualified for the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019 and sit pretty on 12 points by virtue of winning all their four matches so far. The last time the two teams met in Yangon, India won by a solitary goal margin, a gem of a goal scored by captain Sunil Chhetri.

Constantine said: “We may have already qualified for the Asian Cup but that doesn’t mean we will take this game lightly. It’s time to work hard again and am looking forward to working with the boys.”

List of Probables:

Goalkeepers: Subrata Paul, Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, Amrinder Singh, Vishal Kaith.
