2012 AFC Challenge Cup : India vs Tajikistan

News 09 Mar 2012, 15:33 IST

Team India start their 2012 AFC Challenge Cup campaign today with a match-up between former champions the Blue Tigers face Tajikistan in their Group B opener at the Dashrath Stadium, Kathmandu.

Team India will have fond memories about the last meeting of the two sides, when it was in the final of the 2008 AFC Challenge Cup in New Delhi which India won in emphatic fashion, a 4-1 drubbing with Sunil Chhetri scored a hattrick and India qualifying for the 2011 AFC Asian Cup. A repeat would be the perfect start as India should go into the match with a psychological advantage.

Probable Line Ups:


Karanjeet Singh; Samir Naik, Gourmangi Singh, Raju Gaikwad, Syed Rahim Nabi; Anthony Pereira, Rocus Lamare, Adil Khan, Francis Fernandes; Sushil Singh, Sunil Chhetri (C).


Tuychiev; Negmatov,Ergashev,Suvonkulov,Choriev; Sodikov, Davronov, Mahmudov, Fatkhuloev,Vasiev, Rabiev
