  • AFC Asian Cup - India v United Arab Emirates

Mabkhout sealed the points with a cool finish two minutes from the end - his 47th goal in 75 internationals - to give the scoreline a somewhat flattering complexion but left UAE top of Group A on four points.

Hakeem led Syria during the qualifiers for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, where Syria reached the regional play-off before losing to the Socceroos. The nation has also been a regular at the AFC Asian Cup tournament, while this is only the fourth time India have made it to the stage.

Four days after creating a flutter with a stunning 4-1 drubbing of Thailand, India are now looking an upbeat lot in the continental showpiece.

Rajevac was replaced by Sirisak Yodyadthai, who was at the helm as Thailand bounced back with a 1-0 win over Bahrain in Dubai.

India take on hosts UAE in their second game of 2019 AFC Asian Cup in Abu Dhabi on Thursday. "They are a very good side but they are just another team standing in our way", said Constantine. We all hoped to win to satisfy the fans. "I thought Bahrain played very well in the opening game and I was impressed".

"As a coach I have more than 35 years of experience - I don't care about such stuff". But our focus now is on the game against India. Ashique Kurniyan is expected to keep his place in the team after an unbelievable performance against Thailand. The Blue Tigers will defend more deeper play and try to break on the counter-attack with fast forwards like Nazary, Udanta, Ashique and Chhetri. Constantine set up his team in a 4-4-2 formation, but he narrowed the field by positioning the players close to each other. They are expected to have most of the possession and it will be essential for India to prevent them from getting crosses into the box. Of course, hosts UAE will be a different game. It didn't help that Chhetri, India's target man up front, was having a rare bad day at work. Constantine also felt the Indian team had done their homework right by organising friendlies against Jordan and Oman going into the final leg of their Asian Cup preparations.
