  • India vs UAE football live streaming on Star Sports & Hotstar at 9 PM IST

On the second match-day of AFC Asian Cup 2019, Group A's India will face hosts UAE, a side which is placed 18 places higher than them in the FIFA World Rankings as India is on the 97th spot whereas UAE ranked at 79.

Fox Sports will telecast the game live in Australia.

Stange, who coached the Glory between 1998 and 2000, is the second coach sacked in less than a week in the tournament after Thailand dumped Milovan Rajevac following a 4-1 loss to India last Sunday. The nation has also been a regular at the AFC Asian Cup tournament, while this is only the fourth time India have made it to the stage.

Commemorative coins are to be minted and placed into circulation to mark the Asian Cup being held in the UAE.

In Abu Dhabi, Khalfan Mubarak and Ali Mabkhout were on target for the Emiratis, who were fortunate to scrape a 1-1 draw in their curtain-raiser against Bahrain after a controversial late penalty last Saturday. He also became the second highest active goal-scorer in global football taking his tally to 67, which is two more than Lionel Messi.


The evergreen striker forced a smart save from UAE goalkeeper Khalid Eisa before the home side drew first blood against the run of play.

India vs United Arab Emirates, AFC Asian Cup 2019 Group A match will start at 09:30 PM IST on January 10 at Zayed Sports City Stadium in Abu Dhabi. UAE now have four points, India and Thailand have three each, while Bahrain are pushed down to the bottom with one point from two matches. Indian captain Sunil Chhetri scored a brace in the previous game to handover India their first Asian Cup game victory since 1964.

"But if you don't convert your chances you pay for it - and we paid for it".

The loss leaves Syria with just one point from two games in Group B ahead of a clash with Australia in Al Ain next week.

"We know where we are coming from - from very low - but we changed a lot of things", said Jordan coach Vital Borkelmans.
