Women's Football: India vs Belarus - Preview, Indian team, LIVE streaming, when and where to watch
Following the loss against Uzbekistan, the Indian women's side takes on Belarus in a friendly match tomorrow evening.
The Indian women's football team will be facing Belarus in the second friendly international of their trip to Uzbekistan tomorrow, the 8th of April. The last match saw the Indian eves go down 1-0 against the Uzbeks after a fantastic 87th minute free-kick from Maftuna Shoyimova broke the stubborn Indian resistance. However, Maymol Rocky's side can be happy with their effort against a side ranked 41st in the world, 12 places above them, and will be hoping to build on that against 56th-ranked Belarus.
The likes of Indumathi Kathiresan, Sangita Basfore, Linthoingambi Devi and Dangmei Grace will have to step it up a notch if India has to get their first victory in five games since the lockdown was lifted. The eves won all three games against Russia, Serbia and Ukraine during their exposure trip to Turkey while the loss against Uzbekistan on Monday made it four losses in four. That could have been different if captain Indumathi managed to put away the glorious one-on-one chance that she got in the second half. For the Indian defence and goalkeeper Aditi Chauhan though, this will be another test of their organisation and shape.

The match kicks off on Thursday at 4:30 pm IST.
