Midfielder Pronay Halder and winger Bikash Jairu made a comeback to the National squad as National Coach Stephen Constantine announced his list of 28 probables for the preparatory Camp for the 2019 AFC Asian Cup Qualifying match against Myanmar slated to be played in Goa on November 14.

India have already qualified for the 2019 AFC Asian Cup UAE and sit pretty on 12 points by virtue of winning all their four matches so far. The last time the two teams met in Yangon, India won by a solitary goal margin, a gem of a goal scored by Captain Sunil Chhetri.

Constantine said: “We may have already qualified for the Asian Cup but that doesn’t mean we will take this game lightly. It’s time to work hard again and am looking forward to working with the boys.”
