India U19 team which is on the mission to qualify for the U19 AFC Championship 2012 in Tehran are going to take the field against mighty Uzbekistan today.
Having beaten Turkmenistan 3-1 in their opening match, and they are well in contention for the AFC U19 Championship 2012 berth. Although they lost to the host Iran by a 3-0 margin, the colts can still qualify by winning the last match against Pakistan by a big margin.
The job of qualification will be still easier if India somehow manage a draw with Uzbekistan today. But it seems very unlikely as Uzbekistan is the strongest team in the competition. They have 6 players from the last U17 World Cup squad which had produced some excellent results.
They had drubbed Aussies 4-0 and beat powerhouses Czech and USA convincingly. But miracles do happen!
What if India loose to Uzbekistan?
Well needless to say, we should loose by minimal margin possible, may be 1-0. Then we have to hope that teams from other groups perform badly, may be play out draws and share point. This will boost chances of India finishing best 3rd placed finisher in the tournament.
