India face Bhutan in their second group stage match at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Delhi in the SAFF Championship today. India would not want anything less than a win as the draw in the first match for the defending champion was highly unlikely and unexpected to say the least.

Both coach and players are ready to face the Bhutan challenge and they are quite clear that they cannot afford any slip-ups in this match. Sunil Chhetri quoted,"It’s a much-win match for us. We shouldn’t have split points with Afghanistan. There’s no room for any more slip-ups."

The match against Afghanistan did raise few fingers against the team selection and the strategy adapted by coach savio Medeira. Can India take out their furstation on Bhutan or there will be another upset?

Indian Starting XI:

Karanjit Singh(GK); Syed Rahim Nabi, Mahesh Gawli, Gouramangi Singh, Nirmal Chettri, Clifford Miranda, Climax Lawrence (C), Rocus Lamare, Anthony Periera; Sunil Chhetri, Jeje Lalpekhlua
