The national football team will now have a reason to be cheerful. India's Asian Cup sojourn next Jan will begin on a patriotic note when a Tricolour will greet them emblazoned bus in Doha. And, fittingly, the bus will bear the slogan "11 Players, A Billion Heartbeats". Resplendent in the flags of the countries due to compete, the buses of the 16 teams were unveiled on Tuesday in Doha. An initiative of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC), each of the 16 participating teams will be allotted buses with a slogan or nickname chosen by fans in a competition conducted on AFC's official website.
