AFC Challenge Cup final Tajikistan vs India

India prepares to take on Tajikistan in the final of the AFC Challenge Cup football tournament at the Ambedkar Stadium. The match carries a lot of significance for the home team. A win tomorrow would mean India plays the Asian Cup in 2011 in Doha.  India last played the Asian Cup 24 years ago. Tajikistan held India 1-1 in a group stage encounter. India beat Syria to lift their first major title in 23 years. India’s SAFF Cup performance in June was dismal and they lost to Maldives in the final. However on Wednesday, they will be looking to put the disappointment firmly behind, and go all out for a victory to earn a place in the 2011 Asian Cup after a span of 24 years.
