Kolkata giants East Bengal Club have announced their 19 players squad for the trip to Kuwait to face Kazma SC in their second Group B tie on Tuesday, March 20 at the Friendship & Peace Stadium in Kuwait City with the kick-off being 18.30 local time.

The red-and-gold were unlucky to lose their opening round match due to a controversial penalty against Al Orouba of Yemen, now they will have to bring something back from Kuwait to stay in the competition as Kazma had drawn their opening match against Arbil from Iraq.

East Bengal have left Kolkata for Kuwait City via Dubai with a number of players like Naoba Singh, Reisangmi Vashum, Susanth Mathew and Mehtab Hussain all missing due to injuries, while seasoned Alvito D’Cunha makes a comeback into the AFC Cup squad.
