The match will be played at the 20 Years of Independence Stadium in Khujand, a 50 minutes Flight from Tajikistan's Capital City Dushanbe. National Coach Wim Koevermans said India "needed to play an International Friendly" especially after the trip to London got cancelled.

"We would be playing on August 14, a day prior to India's Independence Day. As we couldn't play at Home, we decided to play overseas," he added.

"Going into the SAFF Championships, we needed to play a strong side. Tajikistan are a very powerful side," he maintained. Tajikistan are presently ranked 106 in the FIFA Rankings in comparison to India ranked 146 as per the latest July 2013 Rankings.

"Apart from the Players travelling to Tajikistan we'll probably be calling in extra Players for the Training Camp in Bangalore prior to the SAFF Championships," Koevermans informed. "We plan to travel to Kathmandu a bit early to allow everyone to acclimatise to the higher altitude," he stated.

The dates for the Bangalore Camp haven't been finalised while the SAFF Championship kicks-off in Kathmandu on September 1, 2013. "We may be calling in some new Players whom I had planned to take to England but it didn't happen. Hopefully, everyone stays fit and free from injuries," he added.
