Bangladesh vs India: Team news
India coach Igor Stimac has named a 23-man squad for the SAFF Championship. However, there are notable absentees in Sandesh Jhingan, Rowllin Borges, and Ashique Kuruniyan. But the Croatian coach is confident that his team can produce the goods on the pitch and clinch the championship.
“We cannot think about that (the missing players). We have other players here who can cover those positions. It is always difficult to replace a leader and Sandesh is one of them. We are going to miss him but we need to replace him as a team together for the 90 minutes,” he stated before the game.
