National Coach Stephen Constantine called up 30 players for the National Team’s preparatory camp for the Hero Intercontinental Cup which is slated to be held in Mumbai from June 1, 2018.
The summoned players are to assemble for the Camp in Mumbai on May 16 while players from JSW Bengaluru FC will be reporting to the camp on May 18 after finishing their club commitments for the AFC Cup.
India will compete with Kenya, New Zealand and Chinese Taipei in the Hero Intercontinental Cup which is part of their preparation for the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019.
Constantine termed the Hero Intercontinental Cup as "an opportunity to play against good opponents."
"We need to play more International games before the AFC Asian Cup and here we are getting some International games against good opponents. New Zealand will be going to be a difficult team to deal with,” he said.
“Chinese Taipei will give us different problems. They play the same kind of football akin to Thailand who are clubbed with us in the Asian Cup,” he added. “Kenya are renowned for their physical prowess and strength. The tournament is going to be very crucial for us.”
The Coach also mentioned that there is a “long way to go before the Asian Cup kicks off.”
