New Delhi: The Indian U-19 team is playing national U-19 games against Jordan and Oman during an exposure tour in Turkey, in preparation for the AFC U-19 Championship Qualifiers later this year.

The Indian U-19 team faces Oman U-19 and Jordan U-19 teams and plays a friendly game against a local Kocaelispor club in Kartepe, Turkey between July 19 and 27.

Head coach Floyd Pinto said: “We try to play as many international matches as possible, the more we play, the better.” The exposure tour to Turkey is a good platform to test us against the West Asian opposition. ”
