Looking forward to the crucial Group A match against Myanmar in the AFC Asian Cup Qualifiers (UAE 2019), the Indian National Team will be camping in Mumbai because the weather conditions in Mumbai will be closest to Yangon, as India are slated to play Myanmar in their first Group match in Yangon on March 28, 2017.
As explaining the reason, why Mumbai was chosen over other venues, the English man Stephen Constantine, who is currently managing the India Senior National Football Team said, “Mumbai will be hot and humid much like what we will experience in Yangon when we play Myanmar in our first match.”
“The last time we camped and played in Mumbai, the Western India Football Association were supportive and helpful, arranging and providing all what the National Team needed and asked for. I appreciate their passion and feeling for the National Team.”
Constantine also revealed his list of 31 probable’s, which includes four new young faces – Nishu Kumar, Subhashish Bose, Jerry Lalrinzuala and Milan Singh for the Camp.
Reportedly the Blue Tigers will be assembling in Mumbai from March 12 onwards as per their club commitments in the Hero I-League and the AFC Cup.
