Amrinder Singh finds himself in the roster once again, and will be aiming to start instead of Gurpreet Singh Sandhu after some fantastic displays in the Indian Super League.

Meanwhile, Rahul Bheke will be hoping to cement his spot in India's backline as the right-back, although he faces stiff competition from Pritam Kotal.

In midfield, Anirudh Thapa will have the primary creative duties. Also, Seiminlen Doungel will be a player to watch out for, and could stake his claim for a starting spot.

In attack, Sunil Chhetri is the obvious name, joined by Manvir Singh and Farukh Choudhary.
