Constantine also chose Mumbai as the venue where the senior Indian team will be camping prior to their crucial Group A match against Myanmar in the AFC Asian Cup Qualifiers UAE 2019 slated to be held in Yangon on March 28.

"We have recruited players on basis of their consistent performances both from the Hero I-League and the Indian Super League. I reiterate that the door is open for anyone who is eligible to play for India. But for that he must be prepared to do the work we need.
