Kick-off is at 20.00 and it will be streamed live on Eleven Sports platforms. The Indian camp sounded confident on the eve of the match. “We started the tournament well. But it was still a nervous start. This is the first tournament the boys are playing for the country and that can always give you a few jitters.” said head coach Bibiano Fernandes.

“The result against Nepal was a wake-up call for us. The boys responded extremely well after the setback. We have identified and worked on our weaknesses. I have to credit the boys for rising to this challenge,” he added.

The Blue Colts had started their campaign with a win against Bhutan but suffered a 1-3 loss at the hands of Nepal in their second group stage match before turning their fortunes against Bangladesh with a 2-1 win in the semi-finals.

While the coach’s perspective was about eliminating the mistakes and jitters, the players are all looking forward to redeeming themselves for the final defeat against Nepal.

“We were terribly sad after the loss to Nepal. We wanted a rematch and this is our chance to prove ourselves in the final,” said Captain Vanlalpeka Guite. “We are completely focused” he added.

A big change for the boys, the coach noted, has been the change in mindset. “There is always a lot to learn from any defeat and I have to appreciate the mindset of the boys. We all know how good Nepal is and you can see how much the boys are focused on the job ahead,” Bibiano said.

When the Indian team plays in Sri Lanka, most of the loud cheers must be for the rival team. “The opposition supporters don’t affect us. We have to focus on ourselves. We have faith in our abilities. Having the fans cheer for the opponent is an extra motivation,” Bibiano said.
