India aim to create history when they take on yet another strong opponents in Bahrain in their third and final Group A match of the AFC Asian Cup 2019 in Sharjah on Monday. If India do manage to enforce a favourable result – win or draw, it will be their first entry into the second round since the knockout stages were introduced.
India’s best result at Asian Cup 2019 came in 1964 when they finished runners-up to hosts Israel. But that was a four-nation tournament with a round robin format.
The last time India and Bahrain faced each other was back in 2011 on January 14. Even then it was the AFC Asian Cup, a Group C encounter where India had to win to qualify for the knockouts and Bahrain had broken the Indian hearts by winning 5-2.
Exactly 8 years later, India are at the same junction against the same opponents and will be looking to exact revenge and achieve a historic victory.
