India and China are set to clash against each other at the 2023 Asian Games. The Blue Tigers will be hoping for a decent start in the Asian Games. The team has already secured two golds in their history and will look to add another in the upcoming tournament.
Huanglong Sports Centre Stadium in Hangzhou will host the Asian Games clash on September 19. The two teams have been paired alongside Bangladesh and Nepal in Group A. India’s preparations were interrupted due to a dispute between the All India Football Federation (AIFF) and the Indian Super League (ISL). The reported issue was over the release of the club players ahead of the AFC and the opening matches of the ISL.
With all the uncertainty slowly clearing up football veterans Sunil Chhetri and Sandesh Jhingan will travel to Hangzhou for the Asian Games. India arrived just one day ahead of their match with limited time to train. This has eyed some doubt around the team’s preparations. Reportedly, coach Igor Stimac has also hinted that India might adopt a more defensive approach in their game against China to conserve energy for the rest of the tournament.
China, on the other hand, are the front-runners to top group A of the Asia Cup. They must already be brimming with confidence after their victory over India’s U-23 team in the Asian Cup qualifiers.
