This will be a golden opportunity for the Blue Tigers to Qualify for 2019 AFC Asian Cup as only Kyrgyz Republic are ahead of them in FIFA Rankings.

India will start their campaign in the Qualifiers with an away game against Myanmar on March 28 and host Kyrgyz Republic on June 13. The schedule for the Qualifiers is as follows:

November 14, 2017: vs Myanmar (at Home).
March 27, 2018: vs Kyrgyz Republic (Away).

The venues for the home matches are yet to be decided but with India hosting FIFA U17 World Cup this year, main football centres like Kolkata, Goa and Delhi will be unavailable.

This opens door for Bengaluru, Trivandrum and Mumbai, who have hosted India's game last year.
