The head coach of the Indian men’s football team, Igor Stimac, lauded the players of the Indian team for their 2-1 win against Oman in their opening match of the AFC U23 Asian Cup Qualifier. “All credit goes to the boys, especially considering the fact that they didn’t have much time to prepare for it. The solidarity they showed on the pitch, and their tactical discipline makes me extremely happy. But it’s just one game. There is, and there are two more to go,” said head coach Igor Stimac.

The 2–1 win was India’s first win against Oman at the U-23 level. But the coach was not much interested in studying it. Stimac said, “I’ve told my boys to forget this result. It’s always important how you leave the tournament, not how you start it. We focus on the next game, and we Let’s move on one by one.”

After the win, India joined the Kyrgyz Republic at the top of Group E with the same number of points and the same goal difference. India will face hosts UAE at the same venue on Wednesday in their next match.
