The Indian football team has an important game coming up in the Asian Games as it gears up to take on Bangladesh. The Blue Tigers had a forgettable experience against China in their opening match as they were thumped 5-1 by them. The ongoing tussle between the ISL clubs and the national team management meant the team went into the competition on the back of poor preparation. Such is the condition of the side that they are failing to have the full quota of members in the squad. They began on a positive note against China but lack of fitness levels showcased in the second half and they slumped to a heavy defeat. Bangladesh will feel they have the best chance to get the better of their famous rival here. India versus Bangladesh game starts at 1:30 pm IST and will be streamed on the SonyLIV app. Fan Continues to Wave Indian Flag Despite Stadium Official in Hangzhou Stopping him During China vs India Asian Games 2023 Football Match, Video Emerges.
Rahul KP got the only goal for India in the last game and he looked lively during his time in the middle. He made some darting runs in the box but often the midfielders failed to pick him up. Sandesh Jhingan and Narender Gehlot at the backline need to bring some calmness. Sunil Chettri will have to take up the bulk of the attacking responsibility.
Bangladesh heads into the game on the back of a defeat suffered at the hands of Myanmar via a 1-0 scoreline. Like India, it is a do-or-die battle for them. Mohammed Fahim and Sumon Reza in the attacking third have pace and trickery and India will need to mark them well. Mohammad Ridoy will sit on top of the defence to shield the back four.
