India will take on UAE at the Zabeel Stadium in Dubai in an international friendly match on Monday, March 29.
Indian men’s football team head coach Igor Stimac stressed on the importance of players adapting to the rigours of football at the international level, in order to take the team forward together, on the eve of the clash against the UAE.
After a good comeback against Oman in a match where Stimac fielded 10 debutants, the India head coach felt that giving opportunities to such players at the international level is crucial, in order for them to adapt.
India played UAE last in the 2019 AFC Asian Cup where they lost 2-0.
The friendly encounter will also help as a preparatory match ahead of their AFC Asian Cup qualifiers, which are scheduled to take place in June.
