Indian football team’s chief coach Stephen Constantine on Thursday said that although he was happy with the 2-0 win over Sri Lanka in the SAFF Cup opener, he expects a better performance in the coming matches. “We need to rectify the mistakes before the next match. We started off with a good win but I am not happy with the performance. We could have scored quite a few goals more,” Constantine said.
He wants the U-23 team to play smart football. “We have to learn how to play more smartly. We can do much better than this. Given the fact that the players are young, you can’t expect the consistency every time. Anyway, a win is always the most important aspect of the game and we move on from here,” Constantine said. Ashique Kurunuyan, who was adjudged as the Match, said: “We won, but we missed many chances. We have to be quick enough on the field to utilize those opportunities.”
“I am extremely happy to have scored my first International goal. I need to deliver more for the national team,”he said.
