UAE beat India in Pulsating AFC Asian Cup Match - Highlights

"There are similarities between Jordan and Oman with UAE and these were important games and that's why we set them up".

Fares Juma, defender of the UAE said "All the focus is now on the game against the Indian team on Thursday, stressing that everyone is fully aware of the importance of the confrontation and difficulty, and the need to win to enhance the fortunes of the whites to continue the championship". Worse, the goals they have scored in the two wins are five of just seven in 17 matches under Zaccheroni, whose place is rumoured to have been offered to Zlatko Dalic, who coached Croatia to the World Cup final over the summer.

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. There are still two matches to be played in the group stage and rough calculations suggest they need at least another point to go through to the pre-quarterfinals of the Asian Cup 2019.

Bahrain have conceded in each of their last 19 Asian Cup games (W4 D5 L10), with their only clean sheet coming in their first such game in the competition - a 0-0 draw with Kuwait at the 1988 Asian Cup.

UAE will play a typical 4-2-3-1 formation they will be direct in their approach and will try to exploit India with their physicality.

"But our focus now is on the game against India".

The UAE will need to improve vastly on their display against Bahrain, when they required an Ahmed Khalil penalty three minutes from time to salvage the draw. "I thought Bahrain played very well in the opening game and I was impressed".

"It will not be an easy game - there is no easy game - but the UAE will be ready. We respect the India team, but I have full confidence in the players that tomorrow they will play very well, that their performance will be very good".

"Despite everything, we can get better and do things better", Constantine told ESPN FC at the team's hotel in Abu Dhabi.

"We started with zero expectations".

India surprised many with their opening game win. However, we are not trying to get carried away with the emotion. Ismail needed to be stretchered off and UAE made sure there wasn't much action in the last few minutes of the first half.
