2011 Asian Cup draw amended after India qualify
Wednesday, 17 September 2008

AFP, KUALA LUMPUR - The Asian Football Confederation on Monday amended the qualifying draw for the 2011 Asian Cup after India booked their place at the tournament by winning the Challenge Cup.
 
Two berths are reserved at the showpiece event in Qatar for the winners of the AFC Challenge Cup in 2008 and 2010 - a tournament featuring second tier Asian nations.
 
India ensured their first appearance at the Asian Cup since 1984 by beating Tajikistan 4-1 in the Challenge Cup final last month, meaning qualifying Group C, in which they had been drawn, now comprises only three teams.
 
The top two teams from each group make the finals:
 
Group A: Japan, Bahrain, Hong Kong, Yemen
 
Group B: Australia, Indonesia, Oman, Kuwait
 
Group C: Uzbekistan, UAE, Malaysia
 
Group D: Vietnam, China, Syria, Lebanon
 
Group E: Iran, Thailand, Jordan, Singapore
