Team India after their two 0-2 losses against Tajikistan and the Philippines are out of the 2012 AFC Challenge Cup. Their final Group B game against group winners North Korea is a match of honour, in which India can show what they actually are capable of playing.

Team India has played below par in this tournament so far and the stats against North Korea are not encouraging either. In the 13 matches played between the two sides, India has never won a match against North Korea while the Koreans have 11 wins to their name.

For North Korea, who are already through to the semifinals, the match against India is a chance to fine tune their team for the bigger challenges ahead.

Probable Line Up

India: Subhasis Roychowdhury; Nirmal Chhetri, Gourmangi Singh, Raju Gaikwad, Syed Rahim Nabi; Anthony Pereira, Rocus Lamare, Jewel Raja, Reisangmi Vashum; Sunil Chhetri (C), Sushil Singh.

DPR Korea: Myong Guk; Hyok,Pak Chol  Chon, Kwang-ik; Han Jae,Yong Hak, Yong-Gi, In-Guk; Nam-Chol, Il-Gwan

Can the Blue Tigers salvage some pride before ending their campaign in this edition of the 2012 AFC Challenge Cup?
