It is a proud day for Hyderabad FC as six players from the club’s squad have been named in the 35-member probable squad announced by Indian National Team Coach Igor Stimac for the upcoming friendly games against Oman and UAE which will be held in Dubai, in March.
With attackers Halicharan Narzary, Liston Colaco, midfielders Hitesh Sharma, Mohammad Yasir, and defenders Chinglensana Singh and Akash Mishra, Hyderabad FC is the most represented club in the camp.
