Savio Medeira, Coach, Indian National Team

Savio Medeira has chosen an experienced side for the twin friendlies keeping in mind the lack of time they got. The team did not have much time to prepare for the friendlies. Savio has taken in most of the players that were a part of the squad which participated in the AFC Asia Cup 2011, Qatar.

Malaysia, nine places higher in the FIFA World Raking ladder, on the other hand had a preparatory camp for the friendlies against India and are well prepared for the challenge. It will definitely not be an easy task for Krishnasamy Rajagobal's boys playing away from home against a side that looks better on paper but they are eager to get a good result.
