Hello and welcome to India's second match of the Chinese Tour: India U16 vs Thailand U16

12:32 (IST)5 JUL 2018

The Blue colts will be clashing with the U16 team from Thailand in the upcoming encounter.

After a setback against the hosts in the first game, Bibiano Fernandes' boys will be looking to bounce back strongly in the contest. 

Despite creating a lot of chances in the first match, the Indian forwards could not find the back of the net. In case they want to get emerge on top in this match, clinical finishing in the final third is a must. 

Nevertheless, the Blue Colts played really well against a stronger U17 team from China, as they rotated the ball well and played as a unit. 

The Indian U16 team is currently on a preparatory tour ahead of the AFC U-16 Championship and will be playing friendly matches with multiple youth teams. After a win in Serbia lifting the Jockey Cup in Hong Kong, the boys played a few tours in Spain and are now back in action in China.
