AFC Asian Cup 2019 India vs United Arab Emirates Live Football Streaming And Updates: The Blue Tigers will look to upstage the hosts as they lock horns with the United Arab Emirates after a thumping 4-1 victory over Thailand. This will certainly be the biggest test for India, even bigger than the Thai test. Chhetri and his men would know that and his boys would also know that this is a big tournament for India. Currently ranked 79th to India’s 97th, the United Arab Emirates were placed as high as 24 in the FIFA chart in January 2015.

45′ Half time!!! Hosts are leading by 1-0.
43′ Inches Away!!! Chhetri latches on to a loose ball, and shoots from a close angle…..his shot went just inches wider.
40′ Goaaaaal!!!! The Hosts finally broke the deadlock as MAbkhout strikes, flicks it on to Alshamsi, who charges forward and tacked Gurpreet, to put UAE in the lead.
37′ Chance for UAE! Failed to convert it into the goal as the ball goes sailing over the bar. This was the first time in the match, the hosts got their close chance to break the deadlock but failed.
