The Indian men’s football team will have its task cut out when it takes on Vietnam in the Hung Thinh Friendly Football tournament here on Tuesday. In their opener last Saturday, India were held to a 1-1 draw by lower-ranked Singapore. Up against a confident Vietnan, who blanked Singapore 4-0 in their first match, the Blue Tigers will have to be extremely focussed. “It will be a very different game against a much stronger opponent, so our approach will also change accordingly,” said India head coach Igor Stimac said on the eve of the match.
“We need to be more focused, especially on vertical football and quick transition. At the same time, we must maintain focus on our defence as well. They pose a real threat from long range shots, and from their crosses, and we need to be able to deal with that,” said Stimac.
