AFC Asian Cup 2019 Predicted XI: Jordan vs Syria

Khalfan Mubarak and Ali Mabkhout were on target for United Arab Emirates as the Asian Cup hosts beat India 2-0 on Thursday to close on a spot in the last 16.

Stephen Constantine, who was once Millwall's first-team coach, is in his second spell as India manager.

Thailand dismissed Milovan Rajevac after their heavy loss to India in Group A and they bounced back with a 1-0 win over Bahrain on Thursday. He also became the second highest active goal-scorer in global football taking his tally to 67, which is two more than Lionel Messi.

Syria, like the Socceroos, dominated possession against the Chivalrous with 66% of the ball.

Sandesh Jhingan had the first big chance of the game as he escaped his marker during a corner, but failed to keep his header down.

Prolific striker Sunil Chhetri also echoed Constantine's words.

And UAE, positioned 18 places above the 97th ranked India in the Federation Internationale de Football Association chart, used that to their advantage when Mubarak charged forward and latched on to a ball by Ali Ahmed Mabkhout, who ran in from the right.

The Indian defence played a vital role in keeping the Thai attackers at bay in their last game, and Kotal believes that the back-four has a good chemistry between themselves. Thapa, the team's youngest member at 20, could not get there in time while Anas Edathodika and Jhingan also could not come in the way of Mubarak, who scored his first global goal. After knocking on the wiring, he asks them again and they reply they support the UAE and he then lets them out of the cage, the report said.

Down by a goal at the break, India were not to be disheartened and made their intentions clear in the second half.

Luck deserted the away side as Udanta Singh's drive rebounded off the crossbar only to bounce out and fall harmlessly to an UAE defender before Jeje Lalpekhlua's volley flew inches away from the angle of the goal. With a cold, harsh lesson learnt in the game against UAE, the young Indian side should be more prepared to face another tough test in their final group game.
