New Delhi [India]: Indian football coach Igor Stimac on Tuesday said that winning the upcoming Intercontinental Cup would be great for the whole team but remarked that he is not insisting on the tournament’s results.
“It’s important we take the next step forward after beating Thailand on their home soil. Winning the Intercontinental Cup would be great for us. But I am still not insisting on results. Instead, I would rather concentrate on improvement on ball possession, and movements without the ball,” All India Football Federation quoted Stimac as saying.
“All our work has been chalked out concentrating on the upcoming FIFA World Cup Qualifiers. But obviously, every game we win on the pathway will help us to further boost our confidence,” he added.
Stimac who was recently appointed as the team’s coach said that he is pleased with the team’s commitment towards the sport and their willingness to learn.
“Till now, I am extremely delighted with their commitment and willingness to learn and progress on their technical and physical abilities. To become successful in playing an attractive brand of football involves a very complicated process of work. But I stay confident that we are going to make it happen together,” Stimac said.
India finished at the third spot in the recently concluded King’s Cup. The Blue Tigers lost their opening match against Curacao, but they were able to defeat Thailand to finish third.
