Blue Tigers Head Coach Igor Stimac warned that Afghanistan will be coming out with an attitude that will be quite in contrast to India’s last game against Cambodia.
Speaking at the official pre-match press conference, Stimac stated, “We need to stay disciplined, concentrated and be composed on the ball.”
“Afghanistan players are physically very strong. Positioning will be the key, and good reading of the game will be crucial. We need to keep tight lines, and win more duels. We need to be clever,” he stressed.
India play Afghanistan in their second match of the Asian Cup qualifiers at the VYBK on Saturday (June 11, 2022). The kick-off is at 8.30pm, and the match will be live on Star Sports Network, Hotstar, and Jio TV. Cambodia take on Hong Kong in the other match of the day at the same venue. As the situation stands, India and Hong Kong are on three points each from one match, while the others are yet to open their account.
