India vs UAE — Football: Preview, Telecast, LIVE streaming, when and where to watch
The Indian football team will be back in action on Monday night when they take on UAE in an international friendly,
After a promising comeback draw against Oman the other day, the Indian football team will be back in action on Monday night when they take on UAE in yet another international friendly at the Zabeel Stadium in Dubai.
The absence of talismanic captain Sunil Chhetri coupled with the conclusion of the latest Indian Super League (ISL) season, which saw a number of youngsters impressing and earning a national team call-up, resulted in as many as 10 players making their debuts vs Oman. Six of them were in the starting XI.
Despite going down in the first half, Igor Stimac's men found a way back when Bipin Singh assisted Manvir Singh early in the second half to equalise. Overall, the new-look side impressed with a resolute performance.
Against UAE, however, the job will be much tougher. Ranking wise, the hosts are 30 places higher than India perched at 74 and it's definitely going to be a tough contest. India have faced UAE 14 times before this, losing 9, winning 3 and drawing 2.
It is interesting to note that the Blue Tigers haven't won an international fixture since June 2019, a winless run that has now stretched to nine matches.
