News India Head Coach Igor Stimac: We Have Come Maldives To Win The Tournament

India head coach Igor Stimac said he hasn't changed his mind though he has just two points from two matches.

He said his team was here in Maldives to win the tournament.

"We know Nepal. They might have different approach because they are in good position. But we aren’t worried about them. We had played against them in two friendly games in Kathmandu. We did beat them there. I don't think why can't we do it here (in Maldives)", said former Croatia coach.

He added, "We have no other options for us. We are still here, We are still alive. I am quite sure we will win the match".

He also analyzed the match against Sri Lanka and accused them of playing dull football.

"We analyzed the match against Sri Lanka.  Sri Lanka wasted 27 minutes of play. Referee should do better. Never mind. It was a bit disappointment against them. We couldn’t score from easy situation. From open goals. There is no time for crying. Nothing has change in our commitment. we still two games to play.

"We will play as a team, Nepal is playing good football. They deserve six points. We know them very well.

He also added that the competition is different and the approach could be different for teams.

"This competition is different. Pitch is different, even the ball is different. If we did win in Nepal, we can do it here too. We wasted the points due to our own mistakes", he further added.

"Nothing has been changed regarding why I am here. We came here to win the tournament. Even with six points we are good to go to the final", he signed off.
