Jhingan and teammate Chinglensana Singh didn't accompany the team due to travel document related issues and only boarded a 3 am flight on Friday morning.

As per sources in the team, head coach Igor Stimac might just rest Jhingan for the opening game and give him a start against Vietnam, a team that reached the quarter-finals of the 2019 Asian Cup.
