Stange became the second coach to be sacked inside the first week of the tournament.

India defeated Thailand 4-1 in their opener but lost their second match 2-0 against UAE, meaning they require a draw in their final group game against Bahrain.

For the first time ever, twenty-four nations will compete in the pan-Asian competition instead of the usual sixteen.

A video purportedly showing a man locking up supporters of the Indian football team in a bird cage ahead of a crucial match with the United Arab Emirates at the AFC Asian Cup on Thursday has gone viral, leading to his arrest, media reports said Friday.

In Abu Dhabi, Khalfan Mubarak and Ali Mabkhout were on target for the Emiratis, who were fortunate to scrape a 1-1 draw in their curtain-raiser against Bahrain after a controversial late penalty last Saturday.

Hakeem al-Araibi, a former worldwide for Bahrain, was granted refugee status in Australia past year after fleeing his homeland, where he said he was persecuted and tortured.

"Tonight I played two wingers outside and a deeper striker. It's important to grow into the tournament". Bahrain moved top of the group, one point above India and Thailand.

He was quoted as saying by Spanish daily AS: "I think we have to bring in players". 'The player knows. And Valencia have now confirmed that they have told the striker that he has no future at the club.

Until Mubarak's strike - his first for his country - the 2015 semi-finalists had been largely restricted to pot shots that threatened little but the fleets of luxury cars in the stadium parking lot. The win was Saudi Arabia's first in an Asian Cup since 1996 and only confirmed that the good run of form shown coming into the tournament was a pointer to possible success rather than false promise. They are bitterly disappointed.

Few minutes later, a glorious chance presented itself to the Indian captain but he couldn't convert either. The act is absolutely disgraceful and disrespectful in nature and we hope the man gets the punishment he deserves.

The Jordanians, who stunned Australia in their opening clash, took the lead in the 26th minute when Yousef Al-Rawashdeh's low cross met a finishing touch by Mousa Suleiman.

Upon replying that they support India, he tells them that's not good, they live in the UAE and should support it.

Chanathip Songkrasin scored the only goal as the 25-year-old fired a thumping shot that rippled the net.
