Asian Cup Qualifiers: Facing a weaker side does not guarantee win: Sunil ChhetriPTIBangaloreOct 11, 2017, 09:54 IST
They might be favourites against Macau today but India football captain Sunil Chhetri said they can't afford to be complacent since qualification for AFC Asian Cup is at stake. "The only thing which we are talking about in the dressing room is how to qualify in Asia Cup, that's it. And, once we do that we will be happy," Chhetri said.
"Just because we are on the top in Group 'A', there is a buzz that we would win the match. I have seen many things not happening when I thought it would. Therefore, I would prefer to stay calm," he said. "Some sides may look weaker on paper, but that does not guarantee a win." Talking about the significance of Asia Cup, Chhetri said it is a massive and the biggest tournament for any Asian country to participate in. Replying to a query, Chhetri said the team has a strategy to break the defence of Macau since it was too good in the their previous match.
