Goalkeeper Gurmeet Singh of Hyderabad FC was selected on Saturday by Igor Stimac, the head coach of the Indian men's football team, for the current camp in Bhubaneswar.
The Indian men's football team is now camped out in the capital of Odisha as they get ready for the SAFF Championship in Bengaluru and the Intercontinental Cup in Bhubaneswar.
Due to injury, two players—midfielder Suresh Singh Wangjam and goalkeeper Phurba Lachenpa Tempa—have been discharged from the National Camp. The All-India Football Federation (AIFF) said on Saturday that Phurba has a hamstring ailment and Suresh has a right adductor strain.
On June 9, India's Intercontinental Cup campaign will get under way with a game versus Mongolia.
Vishal Kaith, Manvir Singh, Yasir Mohammad, Glan Martins, and Roshan Singh were already excluded by Stimac due to injuries when he reduced his roster to 27 players after two days of demanding medical testing at the camp in Bhubaneswar a few days ago.
