“We are happy and grateful that we have been given another opportunity to gather and check where we stand at the moment. We are all looking forward to playing the two friendlies,” Head coach Igor Stimac told the AIFF media team. “This will be a really exciting tour, especially three months after our qualification for the 2023 AFC Asian Cup in Kolkata in June this year.”

While the Indian football team is still in pre-season, players from the two rival teams are already playing competitive matches on a regular basis in domestic tournaments, according to the coach. “But that’s not going to deter us. Right now we want to do everything we can to maintain the momentum from the June qualifiers,” said Stimac.

India will begin the campaign against Singapore on September 24 against Singapore. This will be the 12th match to be played between the two sides, with India registering just four wins, having played the last match in 2012. While the Blue Tigers have maintained a much better record against hosts Vietnam, who they must meet on the 27th of the same month. Playing their last match against Vietnam in 2010, India boast nine wins out of 14 along with three draws.
