Bengaluru, Oct 20 (IANS) Bengaluru FC will be without their first choice goalkeeper Amrinder Singh when they take on Iraqi club Quwa Al-Jawiya in the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Cup final in Doha on November 5.

Amrinder picked up his second yellow card of tournament in the semi-final second leg against Johor Darul Ta'zim on Wednesday.

The I-League champions became the first Indian side to reach the final of the continental meet edging past the Malayisan club 4-2 on aggregate.

The All India Football Federation (AIFF), it was learnt, received a mail from the AFC regarding the same.
