India, One of the favorites for this year’s SAFF did not have a favorable start to their campaign. They did eventually draw against a 10 men Bangaladesh who always looked never of coming back after India took the early lead by Captain Sunil Chhetri. India boasts on top of world rankings ahead of all the other SAFF nations but however have been under a roller-coaster ride with Igor Stimac coaching.
Determined to take the 3 points, Blue tigers will look to use the experience of Sunil, Gurpeet and charismatic influence of Udanta, Liston, Anirudh to beat the Lankans.
With Sri Lanka, it is all about continuing the momentum. The boys in Blue have shown the fans what they are capable of in their day. It will be crucial to maintain the same mindset which they are in. The best news in the camp is that Puislas Duckson will be back in the team allowing our defense to be stable.
Sri Lanka would need to play attack and find for spaces through Dillon and Waseem and most importantly the ball distribution from the middle will be key.
It’s a new hope, a new belief as Golden Army fans as Sri lanka will take on India.
