India is set to host Guam in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification match on 12 November 2015 at Sree Kanteerawa Stadium in Bangalore. The match has been scheduled to kicks off at 19:00 local time.
Having lost 5 matches in the group D, Indian football team will be eyeing to register first victory in the qualifying stage for 2018 world cup against Guam on 12th of November. India is placed at the bottom of group D points table whereas Guam are placed on the 4th position with 7 points.
There is no joy for Blue Tigers after the win in preliminary 2018 world cup qualifier home match against Nepal. Stephen Constantine is working hard with team to get better results but results are still far way. India’s hope of reaching to FIFA world cup 2018 has been vanished already but still team is still in reach to qualify for 2019 AFC Asian Cup.
Guam and India faced each other before few months back this year in which Guam defeated India by 2-1. Visitors will be favorite to win this one as well and Indian coach also believes like this. Constantine said, “Guam are the favourites. They have seven points. They are above us in the FIFA Rankings. So they are the favourites.”
“I have respect for Guam and their coach as they do. But we need the points to give ourselves the chance of making the [Asian Cup] Playoffs.”
Guam has got the chance to qualify for the 2018 world cup and their coach Gary White is aware of. He said, “They [India] cannot qualify but we can. We have to ensure that our motivations and passion beats theirs. One team [Guam] can qualify for the World Cup while the other [India] wants to prove. This game will be a lot different to the game in [first leg] Guam.”
Predicted Playing XI line-ups
Gurpreet, Jhingan, Arnab, Das, Khongjee, Robin, Eugeneson, Borges, Francis, Chhetri and Jeje.
Herrick, Romero, A. Lee, J. Lee, Grimes, Cunliffe, McDonald, Nicklaw, Guy, Matkin and Malcolm.
The home support can help Indian team to stand against Guam but still visitors will be favorite to win this game. Guam has 60 percent chances to win the match and the expected score line is 2-1.
