AFC Asian Cup 2019, India vs UAE, Highlights

AFC Asian Cup 2019: 5 talking points as UAE beat India 2-0

In what is shaping up as one of the most interesting groups of the AFC Asian Cup 2019, UAE's win against India and Thailand defeating Bahrain blows the group wide open - with all 4 teams still having a realistic chance of qualifying for the next stage of the competition. We all hoped to win to satisfy the fans.

Coach Stephen Constantine will be pleased with how the second half against Thailand turned out.

"It will not be an easy game - there is no easy game - but the UAE will be ready". It will be a very hard game.

"The India team played a distinguished game in the first match", Zaccheroni said. "We will change that image and give a good image in the next game".

Commemorative coins are to be minted and placed into circulation to mark the Asian Cup being held in the UAE. The defence looked susceptible on the counter, especially on the right flank, and the Indians - who are known to attack on the counter - will look to exploit that. Three misses for the Blue Tigers. We know that we failed our fans and we apologise to them.

The Central Bank of the UAE has minted 1,000 silver coins, which are worth 50 dirhams each, as part of the footballing festivities. Ashique Kurniyan is expected to keep his place in the team after an wonderful performance against Thailand. But our focus now is on the game against India. The attacking line comprising Sunil Chhetri, Ashique Kuruniyan and Udanta Singh combined well, while the defensive unit led by Sandhesh Jhingan was fairly stable at the back. "They didn't play to the best of their capabilities (against Bahrain)". They are expected to have most of the possession and it will be essential for India to prevent them from getting crosses into the box.

First pediatric flu death reported to NJ Department of Health
Dr Kevin Kelleher, HSE Assistant National Director, Health Protection, said that Ireland had now entered the flu season. Lab-confirmed flu cases in the county total 2,083 through January 5, according to the county's weekly influenza report.

"We have a very young side here and they are excited". Scoring in Asian Cup wouldn't be something new to Sunil, as the striker has already scored four times in the championship. With India facing a very strong opposition a lot will depend on him to win balls in the midfield and break attacks.

Ali Mabkhout - He is probably one of best strikers in west Asia and has fantastic goal returns for both club and country ( 0.75 per game for club and 0.68 for country). Mabkhout had a bad game against Bahrain but will look for redemption against India.

Ismail Al Hammadi - He has been a key member of the UAE side for over 10 years and has scored against India in 2011.

Both India and UAE have played 13 matches against each other and UAE has emerged triumphant on eight occasions while India has won just three of them, two of those encounters have been draws.

The Emirates, who salvaged a 1-1 draw in their curtain-raiser against Bahrain after a controversial late penalty last weekend, went top of Group A on four points from two games despite a hairy start in Abu Dhabi.
