Indian Football team coach Stephen Constantine on Thursday declared the final 23-member squad for AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019.
The coach Stephen Constantine said, “It was extremely essential to keep on the continuity. It will be silly of me to completely change the way we do things. Most of these boys are with us for some time now.”
“The other five boys from the earlier list of 28 will be staying with us until January 2, 2019. In case of an injury or anything else happens, these 5 extra boys will need to step up. We are looking forward to the massive upcoming tournament. We are expecting that these 23 boys will do a good job for us,” he added.
