'Tri-series good build-up to Asian Cup qualifiers'
National football coach Stephen Constantine feels the upcoming tri-series against Mauritius and St. Kitts will be handy practice for the team ahead of its crucial AFC Asian Cup Qualifying match against Macau on September 5.
"The two matches would immensely benefit our quest to maintain an all-win record in the Asian Cup Qualifiers," Constantine said.
India will play the tri-series between August 19 and 24 in Mumbai.
India are on top of AFC Asian Cup qualifying Group A at the moment, courtesy back to back victories over Myanmar and the Kyrgyz Republic. "Qualification to the 2019 Asian Cup stays the priority. It will be nice to work with the boys again. They will be coming after a long break.
