The Indian National Team begins their AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019 Qualifiers campaign with an away match against Myanmar at the Thuwunna Stadium, Yangon on Tuesday, 28th March 2017. Indian football fans will be enthralled as they can now watch the match live on DD Sports channel starting 17.00 IST. In addition, Hotstar and JioTV will also stream the game live on their respective digital platform for fans who are on the move.

India, ranked 40 places above its competing neighbour have just come off from a 3-2 victory over Cambodia in a friendly game. The friendly has helped provide momentum to Stephen Constantine’s men going into the fixture against Myanmar, who had won 1-0 during their last meeting at the Asian Game Qualifiers in 2015.

India have been clubbed in Group A alongside Kyrgyzstan, Myanmar and Macau. The three points at stake will be crucial for India in a bid to qualify as they play their next game against Kyrgyzstan in June 2017.
