The AIFF will be hosting the inaugural edition of the four-nation Intercontinental Cup to be played at the Mumbai Football Arena from 1-10 June.

Apart from India, South Africa, New Zealand and Chinese Taipei will take part in the Quadrangular tournament.

"That (the Intercontinental Cup) is really good. Our main priority is to be ready for the Asian Cup and it starts in January. This tournament, along with the teams that are coming in including New Zealand, will be a very good test for us," the 24-year-old defender told.

"The more better teams you play, the better you get. It (the tournament) is the right opportunity to test ourselves. We never come across teams like these quite often – New Zealand, South Africa, they are going to play a different kind of football," Jhingan said.
