Indian national team arrives in Tajikistan

Indian national team

The Indian national team has arrived in Khujand for the upcoming international friendly against Tajikistan on August 14.

The 20-member squad arrived in the capital city Dushanbe before they continued their journey to Khujand on a special flight chartered by the Tajikistan Football Federation. Wim Koevermans and his team missed their original connecting flight to Khujand due to a four-hour delay at the Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi.

Team India will take on the hosts at the 20-Letie Nezavisimosti Stadium (20 Years of Independence Stadium) in Khujand. The kick-off is scheduled for 17.00 local time (17.30 IST | 14.00 CET | 13.00 GMT).
