The Spaniard based his prediction on the team's current form and recent results. "The way India played against South Africa yesterday and beat them (7-4) in their own backyard in the Champions Challenge is remarkable," Brasa, coach of WSH's Chennai outfit told MiD DAY.
"South Africa are a fine team and at home they are rated as one of the top sides in the world. But this young Indian team displayed some speedy and skillful hockey to beat them all ends up yesterday. If India play like this, they'll easily win the Qualifiers against France, Egypt, USA, Canada & Poland)," said Brasa.
