IND vs SGP LIVE: What are the changes with BOLD?

  • Due to injuries, some players including Rahul Bheke, Suresh Singh and Rahim Ali were ruled out of the selection.
  • However, some available big names were left out of the squad. The shocking part of the squad was the exclusion of mainstays like Manvir Singh and Deepak Tangri along with veterans like Subhashish Bose and Pritam Kotal.
  • They were replaced with the likes of Chhangte, Vikram Pratap Singh, Narender Gahlot after their impressive performances in the Durand Cup
  • Although Rahul KP did not appear in the Durand Cup. he received his first call-up to the senior team given his performances in the SAFF U23 Championship earlier.

During the AFC Asian Cup 2022 qualifiers, Igor Stimac made a notable comment about Manvir Singh, specifically after the win over Cambodia. Three months later, Manvir has fallen out of favor with the national team and is no longer as important to Stimac as he once was. Although he has time and again advocated to look ahead and move past Sunil Chhetri, dropping Manvir Singh does not serve the purpose.

He was dropped due to his recent underwhelming performances, including those in the Durand Cup and the loss to Kuala Lumpur City FC. Manvir needs to bring consistency to establish himself as a reliable striker. The poor performances of the ATK Mohun Bagan squad in recent times also saw Ashish Rai lose his place in the national team along with Kerala Blasters youngster Hormipam Ruivah.

Igor Stimac’s selection of players for the friendlies highlights a very important positive aspect of the coach. It shows the development mentality of the coach and how India is preparing in advance for the future. The abundance of young agile players in the declared team helps to that point. Stimac dropping the players due to outdated performance would simultaneously force the players to work to achieve a feat in The Blue Tiger’s Jersey.
