As the AFC Asian Cup 2019 slowly starts to make its way into sports news, tension has been high between teams and managers. UAE’s coach Alberto Zaccheroni is ready to take on India as they go head to head tomorrow, September 11, in the Zayed Sports City Stadium. Zaccheroni mentions his admiration for India’s talent and confidence.
The Italian coach highlights India’s core strengths and discusses key points on how they will counter their potential attacks. India and UAE are both in for an interesting round of matches in the AFC Asian Cup. Each team brings their own mix to the table with India beating Thailand 4-1 in their first match in the campaign, while UAE faces a draw with Bahrain.
“India are a very compact team and we know they will look to play on the counter-attack. They did so well against Thailand and I am sure they will be confident when facing us. However, I can assure you that there will be a lot of passion and desire to win in my team, more than what was shown in the match against Bahrain.” Zaccheroni adds.
If India wins against UAE, a sure spot in the Round of 16 awaits them, while UAE’s fate will result in a few points next to their name. The match between India and UAE will air at 9:30 PM IST and can be watched in the Star Sports Network. For those who wish to stream the match, Hotstar will be hosting a live stream game.
