New Delhi, Jun 2: Star striker Bhaichung Bhutia was today omitted from the 42 probables named by the AIFF for a training camp starting here from June 25 for India's World Cup Football Qualifier against UAE in July.


With Dempo coach Armando Colaco taking charge of the team after Englishman Bob Houghton's sacking, the AIFF today dropped as many as 13 senior players who were part of the 23 member squad for the Asian Cup in Qatar early this year.

Most of the youngsters, who were part of the 2012 AFC Challenge Cup qualifying tournament in Malaysia, got themselves named in the probables' list.

Besides Bhutia, who played in the I-League second division for United Sikkim, other senior players dropped are defenders Surkumar Singh, Anwar Ali, Deepak Mondal and N S Manju, midfielders Renedy Singh, N P Pradeep and Mehrajuddin Wadoo and strikers Abhishek Yadav and Mohammed Rafi. PTI
