India are all set to face Jordan in their final international friendly before the AFC Asian Cup Qualifiers next month. The match against Zambia was cancelled as the Football Association of Zambia called off the game due to the unavailability of players. Hence, Igor Stimac’s men must ramp up their efforts to make the most out of this preparatory match. Coming to FIFA rankings, India are ranked 106th whereas Jordan are at 91. With a gap of more than ten places, India will be up against seasoned opponents and must look to nullify their threat.

Jordan Vs India: Team News

India have a 25-member squad for this game. Stimac will have the likes of Glan Martins, Ritwik Das, Udanta Singh, Sahal Abdul Samad, Suresh Wangjam, andYasir Mohammad in midfield. The Blue Tigers lost Chhetri’s valuable strike partner, Rahim Ali and V.P Suhair to injury in the earlier stages.

Though the Croatian head coach was all praises for the duo, Ishan Pandita has been given the chance to shine in their absence. Most importantly Sunil Chhetri’s return to the Indian football team has been confirmed after a six-month hiatus. 

Adnan Hamad’s men are also most likely to be in full strength for the clash in Doha. With Bahaa Faisal the only absentee due to his ruptured ACL, Jordan are well equipped with all of their starters.
