A 23-man Indian squad will travel to Vietnam on September 20 to play two FIFA friendlies against Singapore and Vietnam on September 24 and 27.

The three-team event has been named the Hung Thinh Friendly Football Tournament, with hosts Vietnam and Singapore facing each other in the opening match on 21 September.

While the champions of the round robin event will receive a prize money of USD 30,000, the runners-up will take home USD 20,000. Third place also carries a prize money of USD 10,000.

Speaking to the-aiff.com, Stimac said, “We are grateful that we have been given another opportunity to come together and check where we actually stand at the moment. This will be a really exciting tour, especially three months after our qualification for the AFC Asian Cup 2023 in Kolkata in June this year.”

The coach agreed to a suggestion that while his boys are yet to finish their pre-season, players from the two rival sides are already regularly playing competitive matches in the domestic tournaments.
