Having registered a win in their opener, the Indian national team will look to get the better of a Guam side who were battered 5-0 by Myanmar...

A toothless Guam team had no reply when Myanmar put five goals past them on Saturday. Their chances of making it into the main tournament look dim following a thrashing in the opening game of the qualifiers.

In the 2006 AFC Challenge Cup when there were no qualifiers, Guam were placed in Group C alongside Bangladesh, Cambodia and Palestine and failed to register a single point in the tournament. As such, this match will remain as one to restore the pride of the Matao.

Will Koevermans start with two strikers against Guam?

Meanwhile, India pulled off a narrow escape against the Chinese Taipei after Robin Singh scored the winner in the 91st minute to give his side an important win.

It was Jewel Raja who scored the opener for the Men in Blue when the midfielder converted his chance in the 40th minute before Lee Tai-Lin equalized in the 54th minute.

Wim Koevermans had started with only Sunil Chhetri upfront and might think of introducing a strike-partner for the Indian captain in an opportunity to capitalise against a weaker Guam side.
