The Blue Tigers missed three big chances in the first half and while they created opportunities after the break too, India were denied on two occasions by the framework. Bahrain moved top of the group, one point above India and Thailand. The hosts are already under pressure from media and fans after an underwhelming start to their campaign and anything short of a win will put their hopes of qualifying to next round in trouble. "UAE are the host nation and want to do well and it is going to be very hard".

"There are similarities between Jordan and Oman with UAE and these were important games and that's why we set them up. We will try to get the result that we need", he concluded.

At the back, India were compact and didn't let the UAE get behind the backline. Nobody thought we were going to win a game. 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.

In the 11th minute, skipper Sunil Chhetri played a wonderful through ball to Ashique, who forced a brilliant save from the UAE keeper. Ashique Kurniyan is expected to keep his place in the team after an unbelievable performance against Thailand. India next play Bahrain in their last group game on Monday.

"My guys made a great performance and tactically they were very good", said Borkelmans.

Sunil Chhetri - To score goals up front India will be dependent on ever reliable capatain.

Pronoy Halder - Halder is often regarded as India's best Defensive Midfielder.

On expected lines, the United Arab Emirates enjoyed possession initially but, to the surprise of many, India had more shots at goal and dominated proceedings by keeping the opposition defence busy. Mabkhout had a bad game against Bahrain but will look for redemption against India.

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. He is a traditional winger and is known for his crosses inside the box.

The odds, though, appear to be stacked in UAE's favour as the Alberto Zaccheroni-coached side has a better Federation Internationale de Football Association ranking of 79, has won 8 of the 13 games between the two sides and will be spurred on by the noisy home crowd.
