Mumbai: Indian national football team’s friendly fixture against People’s Republic of China will be broadcast live on the Star Sports network, Hotstar and Jio TV from 5 pm onwards on Saturday, October 13, 2018.
This is the first time the Indian team will play against China and the game as rightly termed by coach Stephen Constantine is ‘much more than friendly’ as it serves as a perfect warm-up for the national team ahead of AFC Asian Cup 2019.
China are ranked 21 places higher than India who are currently enjoying their best ever phase in international football at 97. The Sunil Chhetri led team under the guidance of head coach Stephen Constantine enjoyed a 13-match unbeaten run which was ended by Kyrgyzstan earlier this year. This was followed by a wonderful outing in the SAFF Cup campaign where the team finished as runners-up.
Indian fans can cheer for their team in their favourite language as the game will be broadcast in English, Hindi and Tamil across the Star Sports network, Hotstar and Jio TV.
