The second edition of the Hero Intercontinental Cup will kick-off on July 7 with defending champions India taking on Tajikistan on the opening day.

The tournament will be the second edition of the Hero Intercontinental Cup, with hosts India winning the previous edition in Mumbai after defeating Kenya in the final which was witnessed by a packed house at the Mumbai Football Arena in June last year.

This will be Indian National Team Head Coach Igor Štimac’s second assignment with the Blue Tigers ahead of the crucial FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifiers scheduled from September 2019.

In their last competition, the Blue Tigers finished third at the King’s Cup 2019 in Buriram, Thailand, which included a commendable 1-0 victory over hosts Thailand – the first-ever for India in the country.
