India vs Malaysia International Friendly at Kolkata - Preview

India Vs Malaysia
International Friendly
Yuva Bharati Kriangan, Kolkata
16th November, 2011
Live from 6:30 PM IST
                                    
India will look back to bounce back after a late goal by the versatile Rahim Nabi saved the day for the 'Blue Tigers' and for the coach, Savio Medeira. It will be a more familiar territory for the Men in Blue at the artificial turf at the Salt Lake Stadium. On the other hand, Malaysia will find it hard to play in the artificial turf as, for most of the players it will their first time experience in playing in the synthetic turf. 

The first match against Guwahati was a glimpse of what the Malaysians can do. India had to dig deep in the match to secure a draw. Some missed chances and some sloppy defending were the order of the day. India mainly fainted out in the midfield where Climax Lawrence and Jewel Raja failed to control the midfield. Unlike last game Malaysia might get the service of star forward Safiq Rahim from the start. India will be banking on Sunil Chhetri and Jeje again to deliver the goods in the front while Karanjit Singh will have to make sure that India don't concede against Malaysia.

Again, it will be a good opportunity for both the teams to climb up some places in the FIFA World Raking Ladder.
