Indian on look out for win against aggressive Syria
Chandigarh: After assisting striker Uttam Rai to help score those two goals against Uzbekistan that nearly helped them win the match,Chandigarh Football Academy players,Daniel Lalhlimpuia and ,will hope to win against Syria in their next match. India would like to ride on the positive verve when they take on an aggressive Syrian side in the AFC U-16 Football Championship here today. “We are looking forward to another tough game. They (Syria) are strong and aggressive who can play football at the same time. “They need to be lauded for their fighting spirit,the manner in which they came back to equalise in injury time (against China),” the coach of the Indian U-16 team,Colm Toal,said. India gave a mighty scare to Uzbekistan before going down fighting 2-3 in their opening group match of the championship yesterday. India managed to come back twice through Uttam Rai,before letting Uzbeks off the hook 10 minutes prior to the final whistle,to lose the match. The young Indian brigade,however,can hold their heads high after yesterday’s exhibition,as the same opponents had earlier thrashed them 9-0 in the qualifiers. “It was disappointment against Uzbekistan. Having shown so much improvement since the last time we played them,it’s frustrating not to get a result which we deserved,” Toal said. India,though,need to get their act right against the Syrian’s who rallied to level the match against fancied China.
