Looks like the final line-up for the Nehru Cup will consist of hosts India, Cameroon, Kenya, Maldives and Syria, though doubts still remain about Syria with all the trouble that is currently going on over there. Philippines apparently decided to back out and I fully understand their decision; the tournament is less than a month away and the AIFF are taking their sweet time and being their customary indecisive selves. The Azkals cannot afford to stall any longer with the ASEAN Cup coming up. As a Maldivian, I am delighted that we are getting this opportunity to play against the likes of Cameroon, but we are probably going to look horribly out of our depths. Another tournament where we go out with all guns blazing, get hammered and return home without learning anything beckons.
