IND vs UAE Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
India can put themselves in a strong position at the summit of Group A when they play the host nation the United Arab Emirates at ZSC Stadium (Zayed Sports City Stadium) in Zayed Sports City, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates tomorrow on Thursday night (IST).
Indian tore apart the history books when they dismantled Thailand 4-1 in their very first match of the AFC Asian Cup.
Since the inception of AFC Asian Cup back in 1956, India managed to qualify to only four Asian Cups, including the 2019 edition. The 1964 tournament remains India’s best ever competition as the cricket-mad country finished runners up, though there were only four participants in that tournament.
In the next events in which India played, the Men in Blue failed to win any game, and thus got dumped out at the group stage. So the 4-1 win over Thailand is India’s first ever success at the AFC Asian Cup in the last 55 years. And that’s some history.
The scoreline was just and didn’t flatter to deceive India as Sunil Chhetri and Co. produced an attacking display never showed by India before on International stage and in such a big tournament.
Chhetri scored twice to lead the Indian team and became the 2nd top active player with most goals in International football. Anirudh Thapa and Jeje scored the other two goals to put the scoreline beyond Thailand who once levelled the score after falling behind in the match.
There’s no doubt that the United Arab Emirates possess the biggest threat to India in this group.
The hosts may have drawn their first game 1-1 against Bahrain, but they dominated the proceedings and produced enough chances to win the game. And the fact that they came from behind to snatch a points reveals the perseverance within the squad.
UAE are also placed much higher than India, 19 places above and at 79th in the world rankings. This Gulf country has also qualified for the FIFA World Cup and is a regular participant in the AFC Asian Cup. While we Indians are still waiting for our first FIFA appearance and this is our just fourth appearcne in the Asian Cup.
Indian will have to be a bit more cautious and clinical against the hosts.
