India U23 vs UAE U23: Team news
The Indian boys, under Igor Stimac, started off on the right foot as they defeated Oman 2-1 as Rahim Ali and Vikram Pratap Singh combined well up top and scored a goal each.
If Vikram was the livewire going forward, Deepak Tangri and Narender Gahlot formed a strong central defensive partnership. Skipper Suresh Singh commanded the midfield, and the full wing-back pair of Asish Rai and Akash Mishra fared well too.
Meanwhile, UAE are coming off a loss to Kyrgyzstan. Khalid Al-Balochi had given UAE the lead against Kyrgyzstan at the stroke of half-time but the hosts weren’t able to prevent their opponents from scoring twice towards the end.
