The match kicks off at 7.15 pm (BST).

The boys in red and green, who started the tourney with a 3-0 lose against host Bahrain in their opening group match, will must have to beat Bhutan by a big margin and will have to look at the other results in the group to go their way in order to qualify for the 16-team final round.
