Controversial goalkeeper Zhang Chunhui will get his first outing for Hong Kong against India in their international friendly tonight at Hong Kong Stadium. Zhang, originally from Guangdong, was found guilty of a drunken assault in late 2007 and sentenced to eight months in prison. The South China player was released from jail in November and has since only played a couple of matches for his club. 'I want to give him a chance as we need to see what he can do,' said Hong Kong coach Dejan Antonic. 'He is a good goalkeeper and I think he can handle this well.' Zhang was delighted with his recall. 'This is going to be my first match for Hong Kong so of course I feel very excited,' said Zhang. 'I have yet to reach my peak this season but I will give my best.' Zhang helped South China clinch a treble in the 2006 season and played for the Hong Kong League XI at the 2007 Lunar New Year Cup. With South China forward Chan Siu-ki unlikely to start due to an ankle problem, Antonic said he would use Cheung Kin-fung of TSW Pegasus on the left, while youngster Au Yeung Yiu-chung, also from South China, will keep his place up front with Chao Pengfei of Happy Valley. Lee Wai-lim, who impressed in the Interport Cup victory over Guangdong, will play on the right. 'This will be our last match before the Asian Cup qualifier against Bahrain, and of course we want to win,' said Antonic. 'But the more important thing is to see the players in action and gain a clearer picture for the Bahrain match.' Hong Kong also played India in a friendly in 2006 when preparing for the last Asian Cup qualifiers. India captain Bhaichung Bhutia, who scored a penalty in that match which ended 2-2, is back. Bhutia, India's 2008 Player of the Year, is his country's most famous player because of his spell with English lower-league side Bury. He led India to victory in the AFC Challenge Cup last year which gained them direct entry to the 2011 Asian Cup.
