Indian team for football friendly against China announced, Balwant Singh misses out

The friendly will mark India’s first ever International away fixture against China. Both the sides will face-off at the Suzhou Olympic Sports Centre Stadium in Suzhou city on October 13. 

The Indian Men’s football coach Stephen Constantine announced a 22-man squad on Tuesday for a friendly match against China. The friendly will mark India’s first ever International away fixture against China. Both the sides will face-off at the Suzhou Olympic Sports Centre Stadium in Suzhou city on October 13.

Indian striker Balwant Singh is set to miss the match after he was dropped following an issue with his passport. ."As his passport will expire in less than six months, he was denied a Chinese visa," Constantine said.
