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.
