The senior national football team will again travel to the United Arab Emirates for a 20-day training camp, starting in Dubai on Saturday, All India Football federation (AIFF) general secretary Alberto Colaco said on Monday.

The 24-member squad and eight officials, including chief coach Bob Houghton, assistant-coach Savio Madeira and manager Pradeep Choudhary, will leave from New Delhi on Friday.

The squad will again be hosted by Gulf International Promotions, Dubai, and will train at the Emirates Sevens Grounds off the Dubai-Al Alin highway.

India had utilised the same facilities last June before heading for a three-week tour to Barcelona.

After the tour, India went on to win the Nehru Cup in the month of August.
