When and where to watch India vs Bahrain

Football fan who supported India and UAE at Asian Cup match commended by sports authority

The difference between table-toppers UAE and bottom-dwellers Bahrain is just three points and all four teams still have a chance to qualify.

India suffered a heartbreak as they conceded an injury time goal through a penalty to lose 0-1 to Bahrain and crash out of the showpiece Asian Cup under dramatic circumstances here on Monday.

After suffering a 2-0 defeat against UAE in the previous encounter, India would hope to end their final Asian Cup group league match with a win and qualify for knockouts.

Maj Gen Mohammed Khalfan Al Rumaithi, Chairman of the General Authority for Sports and Vice President of the Supreme Organising Committee of the AFC Asian Cup 2019, met with Indian spectator Razzaq Osan Konath to congratulate him for his "sportsmanship, civilised cheering and love for the UAE".

In 1984 and 2011 also, India had crashed out of the tournament in the group stage. There was not a single knock-out match in that edition.

Bahrain have won on five occasions win while one match had ended in a draw. So, it is not beyond India's reach to get a favourable result against Bahrain.

Stephen Constantine made one change in the playing eleven that started in the earlier two matches with Rowlin Borges coming in for attacking midfielder Anirudh Thapa, clearly indicating the need to strengthen the defence. While they barely scraped a tie in the opener against Bahrain, the squad struggled against India a few nights ago, yet managed to score two and earn their first win in the lackluster performance. India had more shots at opposition goal though UAE had the overwhelming possession.

Defensive midfielder Pronay Halder, who led the side, also thwarted a header from Mohamed Al Romaihi directed towards the Indian goal towards the close of the first half.

Jeje Lapekhlua has been the preferred forward for Constantine to come in as substitute. Goalkeeper Gurpreet, who had to make a series of saves in the second half, was called to action in the 84th minute when he made a last minute deflection off a header by Abdulla Yusuf Helal.
