That stupendous show earned India three valuable points, a place on top of the group and a goal average of plus three.

Hakeem led Syria during the qualifiers for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, where Syria reached the regional play-off before losing to the Socceroos.

Progressing to the Asian Cup's knockout stages would be a further step forward.

India's 4-1 victory over Thailand in the opening match of the Asian Cup 2019 was phenomenal, but now Stephen Constantine's boys have an even bigger task on hand.

Rajevac was replaced by Sirisak Yodyadthai, who was at the helm as Thailand bounced back with a 1-0 win over Bahrain in Dubai.

"We've finally got respect for Indian football, we've woken the sleeping giant. [With] Jordan and Oman, the similarities with UAE are there, which is why we had those games", he said. We all hoped to win to satisfy the fans. The quick work on the break by the team hassled Thailand throughout the match and the Blue Tigers will be looking to repeat their heroics on Thursday as well against a strong UAE. "I thought Bahrain played very well in the opening game and I was impressed". They are managed by Alberto Zaccheroni who has won the Serie A with A.C Milan and Asian Cup with Japan and has over 35 years of experience, He is certainly someone who knows to change things around. Ashique Kurniyan is expected to keep his place in the team after an awesome performance against Thailand.

It would not be wrong to say that India will be more confident that UAE when both sides will take to the field on Thursday.

UAE will play a typical 4-2-3-1 formation they will be direct in their approach and will try to exploit India with their physicality.

As the minutes ticked by, India began playing with more intent.

The Asian Cup is now being hosted in the UAE, with 24 teams aiming to be crowned champions of the continent.

India will also be required to be vigilant at the back as the likes of Ali Mabkhout and 2015 Asian Player of the Year Ahmed Khalil are goal-scorers with predatory instincts in the attacking third. Mabkhout had a bad game against Bahrain but will look for redemption against India.

India grabbed their chances against Thailand with the strikers clinical upfront. He is a traditional winger and is known for his crosses inside the box. Majed Hassan, who came on as a second-half substitute, made sure UAE bossed the midfield and India were never allowed to string together a meaningful move.

India then hit the post once more in the last few minutes of the game but couldn't convert and lost the match 2-0.
