“Everyone here is participating to qualify for the next round and hence every Team we play will be tough and very challenging”, Johnson was speaking at the Official Pre-tournament press conference held in a snazzy hotel in Ramallah, Palestine. “We have first-hand knowledge of Afghanistan as we have defeated them before. However, we have utmost respect for our opponents and will not underestimate any Team”. “At the same time, we would give it our best shot and hopefully qualify”, he added.

The Indian U-19 Colts clash swords hosts Palestine tomorrow in their first match of the AFC U-19 Qualifiers at the Faisal Al-Husseini Stadium in Al-Ram. “The fixture against Palestine will be difficult and intimidating as they are the hosts and they will have the support of the 12th man -- that is the fans. However we will do our best to win” Johnson later told www.the-aiff.com

Furthermore, Johnson thanked the Palestinian Football Association for their hospitality. Meanwhile, Bader Saleh Head Coach of the United Arab Emirates, brushed down the tag of ‘UAE as favorites to qualify’ and expressed in the Official Pre-Tournament press Conference that, “Football is a game where the probability of winning is 50%. We have the utmost respect for every Team present here.”

We welcome all the participating Teams and wish them all the best”. In tune with Sandouka, Saeed Rajab Shah, Head Coach of Afghanistan National Team said, “The the AFC U-19 Qualifiers give us a platform where we can test ourselves against some of the best Teams in Asia.

NEWS ---> 30.09.2015 : AIFF PRESS RELEASE : On a blustery night of September 30, 2015, the Indian U-19 National Team reached Palestinian shores for the AFC U-19 Qualifiers, which are slated to kick-off from October 02, 2015.

Reaching Palestine proved to be a Herculean effort as the Indian colts had to first switch flights from Doha, Qatar to Amman, Jordan, after leaving Indian shores on the wee hours of Wednesday (September 30, 2015) morning and then had to travel for more than 5 hours via bus to reach Palestine.

All in all, the tedious journey took the 23 member Indian squad just over 15 hours to reach Ramallah in Palestine, exclusive of the waiting time at the airports and the border check-ins.

The Indian colts have arrived two days prior to their opening clash against hosts Palestine on October 02, 2015 and will be having their first training session in Palestine tomorrow (October 01, 2015).

The Indian colts are drawn into Group C along with hosts Palestine, UAE and Afghanistan; and come into the Qualifiers on the back of a 2-1 win over Malaysian club side Frenz United A in the FAM-FRENZ Asia Champions Trophy 2015.
