Team India who are preparing for Incheon Asian games face a tough challenge against the visiting Pakistan team at the Bengaluru Stadium on 17th August 2014.

Pakistan coach Mohammad Shamlan Mubarak was quoted saying, "The Asian Games is knocking at the door and this is the best possible manner to prepare for it. India are a good side and we are building a Team for the future. I hope this Tour will help our young Players gain a lot of experience. However, we are confident of achieving a positive result in both the matches."

Indian National team coach Wim Koevermans commented, "The level of Football played in Czech Republic is of very high standard. The boys came back richer in experience. We will also play some good opposition in China prior to the Games in Incheon. That surely will make us stronger."

Wim also added, "The rules of the Asian Games state that we can pick three Senior Players in the squad. Hence, along with Sunil (Chhetri), we have also brought in Robin (Singh) and Francis (Fernandes) who’s not only one of the best Players but can also play in different positions. And you all need to remember, that Sunil does not only score goals but also creates a lot of them."

The match kicks off at 3:30 PM IST at the Bangalore Football Stadium on Sunday, 17th August 2014. The live telecast of the match will be shown live at DD Sports.
