Head coach Stephen Constantine announced his 23-man squad for the AFC Asian Cup, 2019 on Wednesday.

The Blue Tigers are set to take on Oman on December 27 at the Bani Yas Stadium in Abu Dhabi in a closed-door preparatory match. India is also expected to play another practice match before their first competitive match on January 6 against a local club. Centre-back Anas Edathodika and central defensive midfielder Pronay Halder has been left out of the squad as both the players are on the sick-list. Along with them, Lallianzuala Chhangte, Lalruatthara and goalkeeper Vishal Kaith have failed to make the cut. India’s Group A opponents are Bahrain, UAE and Thailand. The Blue Tigers will play their first match of the campaign against Thailand at the Al Nahyan Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
