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.

Hakeem led Syria during the qualifiers for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, where Syria reached the regional play-off before losing to the Socceroos. It was in the group stages of the 1984 tournament. The Blue Tigers won their opening game 4-1 against Thailand and are likely through to the knockouts, while UAE escaped with a draw against Bahrain after they were gifted a generous penalty.

Rajevac was replaced by Sirisak Yodyadthai, who was at the helm as Thailand bounced back with a 1-0 win over Bahrain in Dubai.

"The Syrian Arab Football Federation has chose to dismiss coach Bernd Stange", said a statement on the organisation's Facebook page, adding that former national coach Fajr Ibrahim would take charge for the final Group B game against Australia. The hosts are already under pressure from media and fans after an underwhelming start to their campaign and anything short of a win will put their hopes of qualifying to next round in trouble. The quick work on the break by the team hassled Thailand throughout the match and the Blue Tigers will be looking to repeat their heroics on Thursday as well against a strong UAE.

UAE are under enormous pressure after their game against Bahrain and Blue Tigers might be facing at the worst possible time.

"As a coach, I have an experience of more than 35 years". But our focus now is on the game against India.

It would not be wrong to say that India will be more confident that UAE when both sides will take to the field on Thursday. Udanta laid it off for Sunil Chhetri on his left and continued to dash forward. Constantine set up his team in a 4-4-2 formation, but he narrowed the field by positioning the players close to each other.

As the minutes ticked by, India began playing with more intent. Of course, hosts UAE will be a different game.

Sunil Chhetri - To score goals up front India will be dependent on ever reliable capatain. Constantine also felt the Indian team had done their homework right by organising friendlies against Jordan and Oman going into the final leg of their Asian Cup preparations. Assisted by Ali Ahmed Mabkhout.

Ismail Al Hammadi - He has been a key member of the UAE side for over 10 years and has scored against India in 2011. Majed Hassan, who came on as a second-half substitute, made sure UAE bossed the midfield and India were never allowed to string together a meaningful move. The two sides last clashed in UAE with the match ending in a scintillating 2-2 draw.
