The Indian U-19 football team will play against Jordan and Oman during an upcoming exposure tour in Turkey as preparation of the AFC U-19 Championship Qualifiers later this year.

“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.

“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 are also set to play a friendly match against a local club Kocaelispor in Kartepe, Turkey between July 19 and 27.
