New Delhi: The India and Pakistan teams are scheduled to face each other in a football series to be played in Manchester, Coventry and London, according to reports.
The three-match series in England will start on August 25 and ends September 11.
“Playing Pakistan is always special. It’s a positive sign that we will play a bilateral football series against Pakistan. I’m sure all sporting fans are eagerly looking forward to it,” Praful Patel, AIFF president, told reporters.
This is the first-time ever that India would be playing a three-match series against Pakistan on a neutral venue. The last time the two nations were involved in a three-match series was in 2005 in Pakistan.
The first match would be played on August 25 in Manchester, followed by the second game in Coventry on September 3 before London hosts the final match on September 9.
