India’s U-19 football side is all set to play Jordan and Oman ahead of the AFC U-19 Championship qualifiers in their exposure tour in Turkey. Apart from the nations, the youngsters would also be playing against the local club Kocaelispor from Kartepe as coach Floyd Pinto looks for game time.

While the senior men’s side is going through a tumultuous Intercontinental Cup campaign in the country, coach Pinto would be taking his boys to Turkey for their preparation tour ahead of the much-awaited AFC U-19 Championship Qualifiers later this year.

India would be playing against Jordan and Oman and Pinto is eyeing to get as much playing time as possible. “We aim to play as many international matches as possible, the more we play the better get. The exposure tour to Turkey serves as a good platform to test ourselves against West Asian opposition,” head coach Floyd Pinto said, reported PTI.

“We aim to solidify our playing style, narrow down on our core group of players as we inch closer to the AFC U-19 Championship Qualifiers in November,” he added.

India would also be playing Turkey’s a local club Kocaelispor situated in Kartepe between July 19 and 27.
