New Delhi: India and Pakistan will be playing two International Friendlies at the Bangalore Football Stadium on August 17 and 20 respectively, All India Football Federation (AIFF) said on Friday.

JSW in association with AIFF will be organising the two matches and it will serve as an able assessment for national coach Wim Koevermans before the India under-23 team departs to Incheon, South Korea to play the Asian Games.

"We, at JSW, are very proud to be associated with two games that Football fans in India are looking forward to. I have no doubt that these two matches will be well received by the fans and that it will be a very keen contest on the pitch," said Parth Jindal, CEO of Bengaluru FC.
