In the biggest fixture of Indian football in recent times, the Men in Blue are all set to take on the juggernauts, China in an International Friendly. Well, calling this match a "friendly" would only be a joke, for the two sides are straight going to try and muscle down the other.

While many believes that team India has improved by leaps and bounds in the past decade, the same set calls team China, The Chinese Dragon (you know what they mean!), concluding that the rise of Chinese football didn’t go well with the Chinese players. Before we could sit down and analyse, it’s China’s coach, Marcelo Lippi who’s made our job easy. The former UEFA Champions League, AFC Champions League and FIFA World Cup winner deems India to be the “Better Ones” for tonight’s clash and said that China cannot afford to take the visitors lightly in any way. 

Well, the drama is getting all the more masaledar, exactly how we Indians like it served. Moreover, the Indian football fans have got all the reasons to be happy as arguably for the first time in recent times, Stephan Constantine is playing his BESTEST XI in China, led by the Coolman Sandesh Jhingan!

Who'll win tonight?
Men in Blue
Men in Red
