As the Indian football team prepares to play against Afghanistan and Oman in the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers, coach Igor Stimac believes that the swift recovery of players – which will come after the club games – will be very important. “Players come straight from games and our main concern is to recover as quickly as possible so they can hit the ground again. Our medical team is taking care of minor imperfections, ”Stimac told the-aiff.com.
"We are trying to use every second during camp and the boys have responded positively so far," he added. The team is currently undergoing a training camp at the HTC Sports Academy camp in the national capital.
"After the club's commitments, now is the time for the national team's duty. We are ready to accelerate," Anas Edathodika looked confident. "A game away will always be difficult, but we need to be cautious and seize opportunities to do the job."
Midfielder Pronay Halder, who returned to the squad after the King's Cup, felt the team had enough ammunition at their disposal to achieve "desired results."
“Our team is in good shape and we played great football recently. If we can harness our true potential, we will achieve the desired results in our next two matches, ”said Halder.
India will play against Afghanistan and Oman in Dushanbe (Tajikistan) and Muscat (Oman) on November 14 and 19, respectively.
