Hero Tri-Nation Series 2023: 5 Players To Watch Out For In The India vs Kyrgyzstan Match

India vs Kyrgyzstan

After successfully beating Myanmar 1-0, India will be now shifting its focus to the match versus Kyrgyzstan in the ongoing Hero Tri-Nation Series 2023. This is a friendly tournament and is much-needed practice for the Indian football team ahead of the AFC Asian Cup 2023.

Anirudh Thapa had scored the lone goal in the match against Myanmar which saw Sunil Chhetri leading the Indian football team. The iconic Khuman Lampak Stadium in Imphal witnessed the Indian football team conjure magic in front of an electrifying atmosphere.

India next lock horns with Kyrgyzstan on 28th March 2023 at 6:00 PM (IST). In this article, we take a look at 5 players to watch out for in this Hero Tri-Nation Series 2023 game:

1. Anirudh Thapa (India)

Anirudh Thapa

25-year-old midfielder Anirudh Thapa will be one of the key assets of Igor Stimac in this game. He scored the lone goal in the previous game and will have his confidence levels quite high before this game.

The footballer from Dehradun has so far played 39 international matches for India and has netted 4 goals.

2. Zhyrgalbek Uulu Kairat (Kyrgyzstan)

Zhyrgalbek Uulu Kairat

Zhyrgalbek Uulu Kairat had scored the goal for Kyrgyzstan in their game versus Myanmar in the ongoing Hero Tri-Nation Series 2023. If the away team are to present a strong case for themselves in this game, then the 29-year-old mid-fielder needs to bring about his A-game.

Kairat plays for Aksu in the Kyrgyzstan Premier League and is a strong midfielder in their team.

3. Sunil Chhetri (India)

Sunil Chhetri

Despite getting a few chances to score in the previous game of the Hero Tri-Nation Series 2023, the talismanic striker of India couldn’t put the ball behind the net. He would be hungry and determined to break this and score a goal on 28th March 2023.

The record goal-scorer of India has so far scored 84 goals for the Blue Tigers.

4. Lallianzuala Chhangte (India)

Lallianzuala Chhangte

One of the most promising wingers in the Indian team, Lallianzuala Chhangte had a good game in the previous one. He whipped in the crosses really well and looked extremely good on the feet.

He plays for Mumbai City FC in the Indian Super League (ISL) and netted 10 goals in ISL 2022-23 for the Islanders.

5. Dzhalilov Raul (Kyrgyzstan)

Dzhalilov Raul

28-year-old midfielder Dzhalilov Raul showed good intent in the previous game of Kyrgyzstan in the ongoing Hero Tri-Nation Series 2023. He got a few opportunities to score but failed to find the back of the net.

If Dzhalilov Raul is in form, then Kyrgyzstan can smell the chance of a victory against Igor Stimac’s India.
