India will go head-to-head with Chinese Taipei at the Mumbai Football Arena on 1 June. The match will also be the opening match of the tournament.

17-year-old Will Donkin is currently contracted to English Premier League side Crystal Palace and will be the one to keep an eye on.
India, on the other hand, have also named an experienced squad spearheaded by captain Sunil Chhetri. Chhetri will lead his side's preparation for the 2019 AFC Asian Cup by taking on and possibly defeating the three teams.
India has been performing well for the past year on the international level and currently occupy the 97th position on the official FIFA World Rankings. The Blue Tigers will look to continue this form as they take on Chinese Taipei.
