Bangladesh takes the lead against India
Bangladesh's Saad Uddin led the team in their Group E FIFA 2022 World Cup Qualifier against India.
The India vs Bangladesh clash is being held on Tuesday night at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan, also known as the Saltlake Stadium, with tickets having been sold out days ahead of the clash.
The clash apart from being a World Cup Qualifier will also serve as the 2023 AFC Asian Cup qualifier.
The Igor Stimac-coached side, ranked 104 in the world, are strong favourites to beat neighbours Bangladesh who are 83 rungs below them.
In fact, Kolkata is set to host the national team for the first time since 2011 when they beat Malaysia 3-2 in a friendly.
