How India could lineup in the Intercontinental Cup

Winning the tournament would help India improve their FIFA ranking

Intercontinental Cup is going to give India much-needed experience playing against top-quality sides. Even though New Zealand and Kenya have sent a relatively inexperienced squad, India will have to work hard to achieve their dream, clinching the trophy.

Premier League players like Victor Wanyama, Chris Wood will miss the tournament, but it doesn’t mean it will negatively affect the tournament. When we compare the opponents India have played against in the recent past, the contenders for the Intercontinental Cup are miles better.

To win the tournament, India will need to effectively utilize whatever they have in their arsenal. Stephen Constantine will have to deploy statistics that are well-capable of outclassing the opponents. So, here we take a look at how India could lineup in the Intercontinental Cup.


#Goalkeeper – Gurpreet Singh Sandhu

Gurpreet Sandhu has been Constantine’s first-choice between the sticks. The former Staebek FC keeper displayed impressively for Bengaluru FC in this season and played a crucial part in their Super Cup triumph.

India hadn’t played against tougher oppositions in the recent, but this Intercontinental Cup is going to be a real test for Gurpreet Sandhu, and he has to prove his mettle. A sublime performance would help cement his position in the team, while a deplorable display might even question his presence in the team as No.1 shot-stopper.
