QATAR Olympic team coach Felix Sanchez named the squad for the Asian Under-23 Championship qualifiers, to be held from July 19 to 23.
The Al Sadd Stadium will host the Group C matches involving Qatar, Turkmenistan, Syria and India.
A total of 16 teams (10 group winners, five best second-placed sides and hosts China) will compete in the event, to be held from January 9 to 27, 2018.
China, however, will compete in the qualifying stage after expressing interest to get match experience.
Qatar had finished fourth in the tournament’s last edition, in Doha, which was also the qualifiers for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.
Japan are the holders. DSP
