The Blue Tigers have traveled to Vietnam to play the Hung Thinh Friendly Football Tournament against Singapore and hosts Vietnam. 20 years ago, Bhutia was the captain when India won the historic 2002 LG Cup in Vietnam. The current two-match tour, Bhutia said, will be a good opportunity for the Indian team to prepare before the Asian Cup next year.

“I think it’s fantastic for our national team that they have to play some games there. I think it will be a good trip. Vietnam is a very good team. So is Singapore. It will be a useful experience for the players.” Bhutia said.

Earlier this week, the AIFF’s executive committee approved the technical committee’s recommendation to extend senior men’s team coach Igor Stimac’s contract until the end of the Asian Cup.

The former Blue Tigers forward feels the extension will give both players and the coach the necessary time to build team chemistry.

“It’s a very sensible decision taken by the committee because we don’t have too much time left before we jump into the Asian Cup match. The extension will help coaches and players feel more comfortable and will give them plenty of time to to build on what they have done in the last three to four years.

“So hopefully I think this match and the preparation for the Asia Cup would now be much better,” Bhutia said.

At the same time, Bhutia has urged everyone in the Indian football community to treat the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup with “top priority”.

The 16-team championships, where India are placed in Group A with USA, Morocco and Brazil, is almost knocking at India’s door and will begin in 20 days from now, on October 11.

“The U-17 World Cup is a priority right now and is very important. Everyone is looking forward to a good performance from our girls. I think it has to be the top priority as it starts in the next few weeks,” said the former captain.

He added, “The girls have to play some games against good teams now before the World Cup starts. It will give them the necessary motivation.”

Bhutia also urged all football fans to participate and support the event.

“I think it’s a fantastic opportunity for our girls on the U-17 team. The fans should come in numbers at the stadium and support the team,” he said.

Bhutia said the six eminent players in the executive committee will bring plenty of experience to the table.

“We should all work for the development of Indian football. That’s all we are here for. I want to thank the Supreme Court for giving this honor to all the six players because I believe we can bring a lot experience and give the right advice for improving football,” he said.
